The project, which comes with storage tanks and standpipes, was funded by King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief.

Sheikh Ismail Mohammed Kamil, the Executive Director of MAA, told the Ghana News Agency in an interview that the provision of clean water was not only essential for individuals, but crucial for the communities.

He said the objective was not just providing water, but to ensure easy access to clean water that was safe for various household uses like cooking, washing, and ge
