Residents living within Asonomaso and Bonwire in the Kwabere East District and the Ejisu-Juabeng Municipality of the Ashanti region would now have access to potable water.

This is because, a Non Governmental Organization, Safe Water Network has commissioned a new water station in both communities.

The network’s approach is to provide a community-owned, sustainable water system that provides access to safe water for rural and peri-urban communities at an affordable price.

Since 2009, about 120,000 people within the Ashanti region have benefited from their projects.

Speaking at the commissioning, Country Director for Safe Water Network, Mr. Charles Nimako said an account has been opened at the GN Bank to save revenue accrued from the sale of the water for the development of the communities.

District Chief Executive for the Kwabere East District Assembly, Hon. Adams Iddisa also appealed to residents of Asonomaso to maintain the facility and keep it in good shape.

According to him, it is imperative for them to keep the water attractive so as not to discourage the providers of the facility to continue to bring development and basic social amenities to the area.

The Chiefs and residents of Asonomaso and Bonwire expressed their gratitude to Safe Water for the project.

They pledged to do everything possible to ensure that the water station is well maintained at all times.
