GA W: New mechanised borehole for Medie
Voltic Ghana Limited, producers of mineral water has inaugurated a mechanised borehole worth GHs20,000 for the Meyah Preparatory School at Medie in the Ga West Municipality.
The project which commenced in December 2012 is in fulfillment of the company’s aim to support the provision of social amenities within its catchment areas of operation.
A statement issued, said Voltic has a manufacturing plant at Medie, where it had been a good corporate citizen over the years.
It said until the construction of the borehole and its additional provision of a storage water tank, the school with a fast growing population of about 150 relied on a well for water to drink and use in keeping proper sanitary conditions at its place of convenience.
Mr Phillip Wellington, Voltic’s Plant Manager, said “our decision to support the school was based on a needs assessment. The school has several needs but for now we have supplied them with a cleaner and better option of sourcing and storing of water.”
He assured parents that their children would now get safe drinking water, indicating that as the saying goes, water is life.
Mr Wellington said the company was passionate about supporting primary education and promoting good health adding that supporting the School with a borehole would enable us to further indulge in those two passions.
Mr Gregory Metcalf, Managing Director of Voltic (GH) Limited, said the company would continue to partner communities and organisations such as the Meyah Preparatory School to provide the necessary support in the form of infrastructure.
Mr Moses Emerson Agbodra, the Proprietor of the school, expressed gratitude to the company their gesture.
He also appealed for more support for the school and asked other organisations to emulate the example Voltic.
The Meyah Preparatory School was established in 2004 after the retirement of Principal Moses Emerson from the army in 2000 and his subsequent relocation to Medie where he identified the need to provide educational support to a growing number of children of settler famers.
