Cowbell commissions more boreholes in Ghana to mark World Water Day celebration
As part of activities marking the World Water Day celebrations, Cowbell, in partnership with World Vision, has commissioned two boreholes in Wurapong in the Yilo Krobo Municipality. The boreholes in Wurapong are part of several other boreholes to be constructed under the “Cowbell Impacting Lives” Campaign.
Speaking at the ceremony in Wurapong, Commercial Director of Promasidor Ghana, Mr Samir Sadaoui, said that the purpose of the borehole projects is to help address the issue of access to safe drinking water in impoverished communities across the country. "To better appreciate the value of water, which is the theme for this year’s World Water day celebration, we need to first of all address the issue of its accessibility. The project has become even more significant in the COVID-19 era, as water is crucial in the fight against the virus,” Mr Sadaoui said.
He further reiterated the commitment of the brand to invest in more of such projects in impoverished communities.
Spokesperson for the community, Mr. Ebenezer Tetteh, shared his appreciation with Cowbell and World Vision for the construction of the boreholes and asked for similar projects in other communities in the district that are facing similar challenges. Mr Tetteh also urged all community members to ensure that the borehole is properly maintained at all times.
The project is a partnership between Cowbell and World Vision under the Cowbell “Impacting Lives” campaign. The campaign is a series of community-based activities with the core objective to positively impact the lives of Ghanaian communities through purposeful, sustainable and value driven initiatives. These activities are targeted at the deprived and vulnerable in our society.
