Broken boreholes in Ateive cause water shortage in the community.
RUPFA has repaired three (3) broken boreholes in Ateive, a farming community in the South Tongu District of the Volta Region. A total of GH¢ 9,000 was spent on renovating the boreholes.
Mr. Richard Ashaley, the Executive Director of RUPFA stated that the breakdown was likely caused by the overuse and poor maintenance of the facilities.
Speaking to one of the residents of Ateive, Rebecca, disclosed that water shortage remains one of the many challenges of the community and appealed to RUPFA to not retreat from its promise to end the water crisis in Atieve.
Meanwhile, Mr. Samuel Laryo, the Volta Regional Coordinator for RUPFA assured the community of the organisation’s readiness to end the water crisis in the community.
As a temporary solution, RUPFA provided the people of Ateive with water tanks to harvest rainwater while work was underway to repair all three broken boreholes.
