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.

 

TWO DOWN AND ONE TO GO

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.

New school and new hopes

The photo shows the school we’ve just built for the little farming village of Esereso and the homemade structure that served as a school before.
When the Chief first learned that we were offering to build a school, he made a long speech. He said that now he wished he was a child again. His generation were living in poverty because they never went to school. Things would be so much better for today’s children, he said. The assemblyman wept.
The school will accommodate 120 children who are not yet old enough to walk the 6km to school at Kwamang, and 6km back. Without it, young children are already far behind with their school work before they apply to Kwamang, and the school there will not accept them.
