PROVISION OF PORTABLE WATER FROM BOREHOLES FOR RURAL COMMUNITIES.
Water it is said is life and 70% of the human body is made up of water. Thus basically nothing can be done without water, however this precious commodity has been the most polluted across the world accounting for most preventable diseases in developing and underdeveloped parts of the world.
The situation is not different in rural Ghana or Africa for that matter, therefore providing clean and affordable water source for the rural poor would in no small measure spare them from water borne diseases as well as save them from spending their meager income on these preventable diseases.
The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that more than 3.4 million people die as a result of water related disease yearly, making it the leading cause of disease and death around the world.
Most these are children under ten (10) years of age.
The goal of ROAM WATER PROJECT is to help eradicate water borne diseases among the poor in rural communities in Ghana and Africa as a whole by the provision of portable water, one village at a time.
ROAM has successfully provided clean and safe water (bore-holes with hand pumps) for over thirty villages (30) relieving them from the burden of walking miles at a time to fetch water from streams and infested pounds.
