Nana Appiatua opening the way with a sip of water
Attempts by Nana Appiatua IV, Nyimfahen of Efutuakwa Traditional Area in the Assin Central Municipality of the Central Region, to provide the area with potable water have yielded a positive result as a water filtering machine has been fixed at Dwaabronosu to supply the people with good drinking water.
Assin Fosu and its environs had been getting unhygienic water for some years now – a situation which had resulted in the outbreak of cholera in the past four years.
It is in an effort to forestall this that Nana Appiatua contacted some experts who are well versed in the operation of water filtering machines to come and fix two of their machines in the area.
The project, which is a pilot one, is expected to be extended to every community in the municipality.
Commissioning the project, Nana Appiatua noted that with the help of the filter machine system, the inhabitants could have clean and healthy water for their activities as well as help to reduce some of the communicable diseases in the area.
Mr. Eugene Muller, an expert in filtering machines, stated that the machine produces 50 liters of water per hour and that it could produce 1,200 liters per day.
Mr. Muller disclosed that statistics had shown that about 600,000 children in Africa die through bad drinking water, hence the need to treat the water very well to reduce the child mortality rate.
The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of the area, Dr. Kofi Blankson, appealed to the people to take good care of the machine to enable it serve its intended purpose and make it last longer.
