Clean water can change lives. If we have learned anything throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, it is that if our health and wellbeing are in danger, we are incapable of achieving our full potential. During the last year, life as we know it halted— businesses failed, economies crashed and we all were forced to stand still to combat a crisis. Millions of women and children face a constant crisis in Ghana. With no access to a safe water supply, health is perpetually vulnerable, and communities are inhibited from unlocking educational and economic opportunities that could transform their lives. With your help, we can change that.
After recently partnering with Healing Hands International’s (HHI) Walk4Water, Ghana West Africa Missions (GWAM) and Water for West Africa (WfWA) successfully raised over $39,000 to drill new water wells in communities across rural Ghana. Through the Florence WALK4Water event, we were blessed by being able to drill five new wells in Northern Ghana communities. One of the communities now blessed with access to clean water is the Dantie Church of Christ in Jirapa.
In her first two and a half years of life, Isabella (pictured right) had never even seen clear water flow from a clean pipe. Members of the Dantie congregation, Isabella and her family’s lives are now forever changed. Thanks to the hard work of GWAM and WfWA, and constant support from our partners, the Dantie community and Isabella now have clean water.
