The Church of Pentecost has in the past four years, provided 180 water facilities in deprived communities in various parts of Ghana.
The gesture by the Church has benefited more than 90,000 people, who hitherto would have travelled long distances in search of potable drinking water, reducing the incidence of water-related diseases in beneficiary communities.
Some public institutions such as schools, prisons, police stations, and health facilities, have also benefitted from the Church’s benevolence.
The Chairman of the Church, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, disclosed this in the 2022 State-of-the-Church Address (SOCA22) delivered on Wednesday, May 3, 2023, at the Pentecost Convention Centre (PCC), Gomoa Fetteh, during the opening ceremony of 46th General Council Meetings.
Apostle Nyamekye indicated that in 2022 alone, the Church, under the Community Safe Water Improvement Project, contributed a total amount of GHS 2,136,640 to reach underserved communities, institutions, and mission houses in Ghana without access to potable drinking water.
He stated that the Headquarters and the International Missions Office jointly financed the drilling and mechanisation of 60 boreholes across 13 mission Areas of the Church at the cost of GHS 2,136,640.
Among the beneficiary Areas of the Church were Tamale, Yendi, Walewale, Bawku, Bolgatanga, Tumu, Wa, Sawla, Kete-Krachi, Nkwanta, Atebubu, Kintampo, and Afram Plains.
