As in many places in rural Africa, the residents in Zongo in Eastern Ghana had no safe drinking water. Women spent several hours everyday to scavenge for water in dirty streams where cattle drank and took bath. As a result, infectious diseases and Guinea Worm infection were rampant. Approached by AMURT in Ghana, Lanesra Foundation was happy to assist in a water project that has provided safe drinking water to 26 communities. Assistance included the help in construction of a water tower and a roughing filter.
