Nursing and Midwifery Council inaugurates two boreholes in North East Region
The Nursing and Midwifery Council Ghana, has provided two communities and the Nalerigu Senior High School in the North East Region with mechanised boreholes.
The construction of the boreholes which cost about 40,000.00 is part of the council’s Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR).
The beneficiary communities Sakogu and Wungu, were experiencing acute water shortage during the dry season.
The Chairperson of the Board Rev. Veronica Dark, who inaugurated the boreholes last week in the various communities, mentioned that the provision of the potable water to the two communities was part of its effort to assist in addressing the perennial water crisis there.
She indicated that the council was celebrating its 50th Anniversary and, therefore, decided to put similes on the faces of the residents of the communities, especially the students of Nalerigu SHS.
Rev. Veronica emphasised that the boreholes would enable the communities to store water in the dry season in order to save the people especially the students and said that, the council would continue to embark on activities that would go a long way to improve the lives of the people in the communities.
The Registrar of the Council, Mr Felix Nyante on his part, urged the beneficiaries and other stakeholders to take proper care of the boreholes.
He stated that it was incumbent on them to ensure regular maintenance of the facilities in order to ensure its longevity.
The Overlord of the Mampurisi Traditional Area Nayeri Abdulai Mahami Sheriga expressed gratitude to the members of the nursing and midwifery council board for the gesture.
He said the provision of the boreholes would address water scarcity and reduce infection of certain diseases in the beneficiary communities.
The Headmaster of Nalerigu Senior High School (NASS), Mr Tibila Mohammed thanked the council for the facility, and pledged to maintain it.
