Ghana: Church provides community with GH¢14,000.00 mechanized borehole

Reverend Dr Nii Amoo Darku(Ghana News Agency) A GH¢14,000.00 mechanized borehole to end the acute water problem faced by residents of Amakom in Kumasi has been inaugurated to supply the population with 1,500 gallons of water daily.

The Grace Baptist Church initiated and funded the project as part of its social responsibility.

The Reverend Dr Nii Amo-Darko, Vice President of the Ghana Baptist Convention, performing the inaugural ceremony, said they are not only concerned about the spiritual growth of the people but their physical wellbeing as well.

He said, it is for this reason that it has been involved in efforts at helping to transform the lives of the population, to make things better for them and assured that they would do everything to ensure peace and harmony in the society.

The Rev Robert Kwadwo Asante, Senior Pastor of the Grace Baptist Church, said as a Church, it is helping the congregation not only to “know Christ” but to be of service to humanity.

The Church has also set up a non-profit organization “Grace Fellowship Incorporated,” to provide counseling services, skill training, give out soft loans, construct schools, libraries and award scholarships to brilliant but needy students.

Nana Adu Mensah Asare, Amakomhene, thanked the church for the support, saying that, their presence has been a blessing in terms of spreading the Gospel to the people in the community, and the establishment of schools from the basic level through to Senior High Schools.

Mr Stephen Ofori, the Assembly Member, pledged to take good care of the facility and ensure that it is properly maintained.
