Clean Water for Nanankor

Women Making a Difference is partnering with International Needs Canada to build a water treatment plant in Nanankor, Ghana.
The Problem

Nanankor is a community of small villages and farm hamlets in Eastern Ghana. Even though Nanankor has no electricity, poor roads, no cell phone access, and no healthcare services, their greatest need is for safe drinking water. The people drink water from the river or open, hand-dug wells. These water sources are unsafe, and cause illness and painful diseases such as Guinea Worm Disease, cholera, typhoid, and dysentery. This community is especially vulnerable to a COVID-19 outbreak, because there’s no water for hand washing or personal hygiene.

The Project

Women Making a Difference (WMAD), is partnering with International Needs again to launch their 10th water project: a water treatment plant and handwashing stations in Nanankor. WMAD hopes to raise the entire amount – $26,000. The project will bring clean water to the community and greatly reduce the risk of illness among the children and their families. Children will be able to go to school and concentrate on their studies; adults will be stronger and more productive. The goal of this project is to help pave the way to a healthier and more prosperous community. 

“Having clean water near our homes means that we will no longer have to walk to the river to fetch water. Safe water will make our community a lot healthier.”
