The projects include; the drilling of four mechanized boreholes, 12 hand pump boreholes and two 12 seater KVIPs in some selected communities.

The GNPC Foundation is a Corporate Social Investment arm of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) dedicated to impacting on the lives of people and communities within its production enclave and Ghana at large.\

The Foundation’s operations are driven by 3 thematic areas of focus; Environment & Social Amenities, Education & Training, and Economic Empowerment.

Mr Kudus who spoke on behalf of the MP, said the MP as a ranking member of the committee which plays an oversight responsibility on GNPC and other allied institutions in the energy and mines sectors, took advantage of this to apply to the Foundation in 2018 for the support.

He said the foundation has since handed over sites to various contractors for work to start.

The projects when completed will add to the sanitation campaign being championed by the United Nations through goal 6 of the Sustainable Development Goals.
