The Member of Parliament for Builsa South Constituency in the Upper East Region, Dr. Clement Apaak, has repaired 29 community hand pump boreholes at a total cost of Ghc55,800.00.

According to the legislator, access to clean water in the area has been a challenge due to the deteriorated nature of the boreholes.

“Women and children will often spend close to four hours in a borehole to access water simply because the borehole is weak and doesn’t help in the inflow of water. So, it was necessary to undertake this initiative,” he explained. 

Dr. Apaak, through funding from his private initiative, awarded a contract to Al-Shaa Drilling Company Limited to repair and re-drill the boreholes for easy inflow of water, especially in the dry seasons. 

“Water is life, and upon my tour in the various communities, I realised that women and children have been struggling with these old-age boreholes for some time now. I thought it wise that a focus should be placed on it. And through my own funding, I was able to secure resources to work on 29 hand-pump boreholes. Now, these boreholes are working perfectly and we are all happy about that”, Dr. Apaak told our reporter, Moses Apiah. 

The legislator, said despite such immediate interventions, plans were far advanced to construct new boreholes for communities that still walk far distances to access water. 

“Ideas have begun developing, and very soon, communities where boreholes are far apart and residents will have to walk some distance to access water will be a thing of the past,” he added.
