The Church of Pentecost Provides Water to 60,000 Ghanaians


The Church of Pentecost, under its Community Safe Water Improvement Project, continues to reach out to the underserved communities, and institutions in Ghana, without access to potable drinking water.

Through such initiatives, The Church of Pentecost, in 2021, constructed 51 boreholes within 23 Areas of the Church. The facilities are now serving over 60,000 people who previously travelled long distances in search of potable drinking water.

This was revealed by Apostle Eric Nyamekye, Chairman of the church, on Wednesday, May 4, 2022, during the Opening Session of the 17th Extraordinary Council Meetings, at the Pentecost Convention Centre, Gomoa-Fetteh, near Kasoa in the Central Region of Ghana.

He noted that the Headquarters of the church financed 15 of the water projects, while some Areas and Districts funded 34. However, two of the boreholes were funded by individuals, namely Lawyer Agyei-Gyamfi of New Achimota District of The Church of Pentecost and Elder Kwabena Boamah of Pentecost International Worship Centre (PIWC), Michel Camp.

“Cumulatively, in the past three years (2019 – 2021), the Church has provided 124 water facilities in deprived communities, institutions (schools, prisons, police stations, and health facilities), and mission houses in Ghana,” he iterated.

The afore-mentioned initiatives were spearheaded by the Pentecost Social Services (PENTSOS). PENTSOS is a Directorate of The Church of Pentecost, registered as a non-governmental organisation (NGO), and mandated to fulfill the social/charitable mission of the Church. Its core functions include the initiation, promotion, development and management of social services and projects of the Church.
