Over 600 households in the Zorko-Gemboringo community of the Bongo District, Upper East Region, are now benefiting from a newly installed solar mechanized borehole.

The project, initiated by the NDC’s Parliamentary Candidate for the Bongo Constituency, Lawyer Charles Bawa, aims to alleviate the long-standing challenge of accessing potable drinking water.

For over a decade, residents of Zorko-Gemboringo have struggled with water scarcity, often traveling long distances to access a single hand-pump borehole. They added that women and children used to fight for their turn at the distant borehole, leading to significant hardship.

During the commissioning ceremony, Abiire Awineyesema, the Assembly Member for the Zorko-Gemboringo electoral area, expressed gratitude on behalf of the community. He highlighted the severe difficulties faced by residents and thanked Lawyer Bawa for his timely intervention.

“This borehole is a significant relief for our community,” Mr. Awineyesema stated during the commissioning. “We are grateful to Lawyer Charles Bawa for addressing our urgent need for clean water.”

Lawyer Charles Bawa explained that the initiative was made possible through the support of the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center, to whom he had written about the community’s dire need for potable water. He noted that the new borehole not only provides clean drinking water but also eases the burden on women and children who previously spent hours fetching water.

Lawyer Bawa further mentioned that plans are underway to extend similar water projects to other communities within the constituency, recognizing that water scarcity is a major issue across the region.

“This is just the beginning,” Mr. Bawa assured. “Plans are far advanced to assist other communities within the constituency facing similar challenges. Water scarcity is a major issue in our area, and I am committed to addressing it.”

He urged the people of Bongo to support his candidacy in the upcoming December 7th elections, promising to continue addressing critical needs such as water access.
