Drilling boreholes to improve water supply in rural communities, step by step.
Water projects deal with improving quality of water for human consumption- through filtration- plus its supply to communities that lack access to distribution networks. .

Supply of clean potable water should be amongst government's priorities and duties to its citizens. .

Monitoring projects to ensure sustainable outcomes is key. After boreholes are drilled, certain communities need further support when maintenance and repairs are needed.
Kids pumping water from a borehole repaired last week- drilled by SVG five years ago.

This week we distributed water filters in a new community, Wisiwisi. Check the difference between water before and after it is filtered by both community and family filters.
These and similar filters prevent common diseases such as cholera, typhoid, schistosomiasis and many others. .

Ernest grew in his mum's womb with the umbilical cord tied up around his legs, causing his legs and feet bones to grow differently. Our occupational therapist advised mum to allow him to walk and make his legs strong again, showing her how to go about it - mum was not encouraging him thinking it was hard and he would never be able to do it...having specialists in health care such as pediatricians, surgeons, occupational therapists etc. allow for adequate health care delivery. Concentration of resources in urban areas have negative effects in the rural population, which should be able to have access to good services, facilities and professionals. .

Happy International Women's Day. Time to praise women in the multiple roles they play in the private and public sphere. At SVG we have been and will continue to support initiatives that empower women and provide the tools for self empowerment. .

A mum and her daughters attending the medical screenings at Jejeti last week. Anidaso Health is a US based charity undertaking medical missions in Ghana for some years now. Outreach to communities that have clinics run by nurses provide an opportunity for patients to access treatment and diagnoses by medical doctors. Almost 1200 patients seen in 7 communities in the last two weeks.

A busy day: sponsoring health insurance for 150 school kids.
When a child gets sick, and the cost of diagnosis and treatment is low or inexistent, families are more likely to visit health facilities. This allows professionals to treat ailments on time, which is vital in cases such as malaria.
These kids are from the community of Kwahu Nsabah.
According to the WHO: 'Universal Health Coverage means ALL people can access the quality health services they need without suffering financial hardship' .
