Kabonaa Kura #2 Village is in a very rural area of Ghana, without city water or electricity. Water is sourced from ponds and other stagnant sources where cattle and wildlife also drink. Women walk 3 miles to get water, and in the dry season, they have to walk as far as 4.5 miles, taking about four hours to get there and back. This well project will have dramatic impact on the community’s health, economy, and quality of life.
In late August 2019, the rains came just as the project was set to begin to drill. In early 2020, drilling at Kabonaa Kura hit water. However, the water quality quickly went bad. So a second well was drilled nearby but was unable to hit clean water. Come April 2020, a well was attempted at another village, Alhassan Kura. This well has been successfully producing water since April 2020. Due to COVID as well as travel issues, it has taken over a year to get pictures and details out of Alhassan Kura and we apologize for that.
Thank you to those who helped make this well possible!
