World Vision statistics also indicate that poverty rate among households in the north is pegged at 62% while that of the south is estimated at 20%.

Collins Dauda, Minister for Water Resources, Works and Housing, at the launch of the anniversary stated that government and developmental partners were undertaking projects such as the COCOBOD borehole project and the drilling of 20,000 boreholes nationwide to expand access to potable water to rural communities.

He acknowledged the contribution of World Vision Ghana and other stakeholders in the eradication of Guinea worm through the provision of potable water.
