This was our third well and it was operational December 10th 2018. This bottle is part of a well for the 1.212 people who live in the Sampina community in north western Ghana and is located just next to the village CHPS health center where access to clean water is essential for medical staff assisting women giving birth. Previously the closest water was several kilometers away at the Volta river where there are both malaria mosquitoes and river blindness.
A total of 5000 bottles are sold to finance this project. The photos and quotes here were taken in December 2018 when we drilled your well.
The proud villagers donated a big ram to us which would be difficult in the luggage home to Sweden so we donated it at the orphanage in the village of Jirapa where we also handed over toys, clothing and materials we had carried from home.
fter a full day of drilling we finally found water right next to the nursery home serving Sampina and its neighbouring villages. This marked a joyful end to the dangers of hauling through the high elephant grass to the pond 2 kilometors away in order to get water.
The village of Sampina welcomed us with heartwarming dances and rituals
The Sam,pina well is used daily by 1212 villagers.
