The ecstasy for water !

In Saviour Benin, the only source of drinking water was a shallow polluted stream.  Then Izzy generously funded a borehole, which we tried to drill a few weeks ago, but the drill rig got stuck in the mud.  The weather let up for a while recently, and we had another try.  It took all day but finally, just before midnight, we hit water.  The community is ecstatic.

A brand new delivery bed

The photos show a brand new delivery bed which one of our Directors (in fact, David Rees himself) has just funded for the David Rees clinic at Ankamadua.  According to Madam Mercy, the midwife in charge of the clinic, it will make deliveries much easier and there will be fewer complications.  Madam Mercy is full of praise and thanks for David.

A stall in Camden Market!

Ashanti Development has been given a share of a stall in Camden Market.   It’s located in the new Bucks Market – down a corridor to the left of the photo with Bucks Market written up.

Martha Boadu, who’s running the stall, is Ashanti Development’s founder.  She’d love it if you could drop in for a chat but best check with us which days she’ll be there before going.



We just had two very successful drillings at the villages of Aframano and Asarenkwanta, and then disaster struck!  We were trying to drill a third borehole at Saviour Benin in Sekyere Central District, but the drill got stuck in the mud and the attempt was abandoned.  We won’t get another try until October/November when the rains stop.

Better access to borehole

Nyinampong is lucky enough to have found a donor to ‘mechanise’ its borehole The water will be pumped up by electricity into overhead tanks, and then it can be accessed by simply turning on a tap. The photos show the overhead platforms which the tanks will sit on. There’s a road down the middle of the village, so there will be fetching points either side of it. No need for anyone cross the road.
