Ramatu, a mother of one, from Gbongay village in Pujehun district shared her story with us:
“Twelve years ago, my daughter aged 5 years 3 months died as a result of water borne disease. This was directly because the water we drank from the stream was infested with dead animals, debris, millipedes and worms.
Now we have we have a well giving us clean water. No more deaths have occurred as a result of diarrhoea and we thank God for that. We also have the benefit of GroSan toilets, so we have somewhere private to go, and a health clinic and since having these facilities no such deaths have occurred. Many children in this village are enjoying these facilities and they no longer have to drink from the stream. I’m very happy for that.”
