The ultimate gift will be delivered to a remote Ghanaian village in a few months care of a Pittsburgh church. Grace Life Church in Monroeville has graciously donated the entire cost of engineering a borehole and pump in a village in Ghana presently without nearby water. Their generosity will bring potable water, changing the lives of an entire community.
Eight months ago Hope for Ghana left behind a borehole and pump in Gakpokorpe that provides clean drinkable water. Women and children who had to walk long distances to fetch water, sometimes using dirty river water, now have a healthy, clean source of water flowing in their village.
While in Ghana the District Assembly pleaded with me to build more boreholes in villages that just as desperately need Hope for Ghana’s aid. Over the next few weeks I will work with a Member of Parliament and the District Assembly to determine the villages with the greatest need.
Grace Life Church has answered the prayers in one of these villages. Pastors Buck Schafer, Amy Schafer and Josh Martin are committed to building more boreholes in remote villages of Ghana in the future, and pledge to work together with Hope for Ghana to help the infrastructure of the villages, looking at everything from educational needs to ways of creating jobs in these communities. Grace Life Church will provide hope and sustainability to villages in this impoverished part of the world.
It costs only $2500 to provide water for a Ghanaian community. Please contact Hope for Ghana if you, your company or your church may be interested in providing this life changing and tax deductible gift for another village in Ghana.
Chris Sammarone, my friend and member of Grace Life Church, boldly said “We’re going to fix the problem” as he envisions more and more boreholes being built. I think he means the whole problem. After the initial shock of hearing such huge words I realized it’s possible.
All things are possible, one village at a time.
