AquaBolg Foundation has swiftly addressed the water crisis in the Bolgatanga Health Center and the Coronation Health Center in the Bolgatanga Municipality of the Upper East region by donating two water storage tanks to them. This initiative follows a detailed report by A1 Radio’s Joshua Asaah, highlighting challenges faced by the facilities due to the lack of a water storage system.
The foundation donated a 1000-liter capacity polytank to each of the health facilities, to ensure they have the necessary water storage system and maintain proper hygiene standards.
Ebo Bruce Quansah, the Programs Director at AquaBolg Foundation, expressed the organization’s commitment to supporting essential services in the community.
“The donation was a result of a story that was carried on A1 Radio, where the two health facilities appealed for a water storage system. So, AquaBolg Foundation decided to respond to that call,” Mr. Quansah stated.
AquaBolg Foundation is a not-for-profit organization under AquaBolg Natural Mineral Water. The leading water producer in the Upper East Region, plans to donate three water storage systems to deserving institutions before the end of the year as part of its corporate social responsibility to the communities it serves.
Mr. Quansah thanked customers of the water-producing company for their loyalty with a promise to serve them better in the future. The health facilities, which had struggled with water shortages affecting routine check-ups and critical medical interventions, welcomed the timely intervention by the AquaBolg Foundation.
Madam Akansise Hawa, a Physician Assistant in charge of the Bolgatanga Health Center, said the donated water storage tank will not only address immediate challenges but also contribute to the overall improvement of healthcare services.
“This donation will go a long way to ease the stress of buying sachet water to carry out service delivery. I want to tell AquaBolg Foundation that God will replenish their pockets in 1000 folds,” she stated.
As the Coronation Health Center received the much-needed water storage tank, the acting in charge of the facility, Madam Antoinette Ayamdoo, said there is hope for improved healthcare services and better conditions for both healthcare providers and clients.
“When clients come and they are forced to go out and buy water for delivery, the little money they have wouldn’t be taken out to buy water again. So, this is going a long way to help us. Everything is to be sterile; our women are going to be happy that, at the end of delivery, there will be water available for them to wash down.”
She commended AquaBolg Foundation for its quick and impactful intervention, saying the gesture confirms that the water company “actually loves and cares for humanity.” A pregnant woman, Betty Atule, who witnessed the donation exercise, heaved a sigh of relief, saying, “Instead of spending money on water for delivery, now we can spend that money to buy medication or other things.”
