Koforidua/Ghana

The Koforidua Freemasons Lodge has generously provided a fully mechanized water treatment system to the Koforidua Polyclinic in the New Juaben South Municipality, effectively addressing the long-standing water shortage issues at the health facility.

Previously, the lack of a mechanized water treatment system had significantly impacted the quality of healthcare delivery. Facility managers highlighted that the water shortages were a major hindrance in providing optimal health services.

The new installation includes a deep mechanized borehole drilled over a hundred meters deep, equipped with a 5000-litre Rambo storage tank, a lifter submersible pump, and other modern components. Valued at fifty-four thousand Ghana cedis, this project, funded by the Koforidua Freemasons Lodge, promises to resolve the water problems at the clinic.

During a brief handing-over ceremony, Lodge Master Walid Zoobi spoke to Citi News about the initiative, emphasizing its importance. "As Freemasons and members of the Koforidua Lodge, we undertake a major charity project annually. This year, we chose to address the water issues at the polyclinic after learning about the inconsistent water supply. Recognizing water as an essential commodity, particularly crucial for a major health facility, we saw an urgent need to act. With the support of benevolent individuals and lodge members, we raised the necessary funds for this project, which we believe will significantly improve the water situation at the clinic," Zoobi said.

Dr. Kwame Ofori Koram, the Medical Superintendent of the Koforidua Polyclinic, expressed profound gratitude to the Freemasons. He detailed the challenges the facility faced due to the unreliable water supply and highlighted the positive impact the new system would have on service delivery.

Apagyahene Nana Kwame Dua, a member of the Koforidua Lodge, chaired the handing-over ceremony on behalf of the Omanhene of the New Juaben Traditional Area, Daasebere Kwaku Boateng III. He praised the Freemasons for their generous contribution and assured continued positive collaboration from the traditional council to support more impactful projects benefiting the community and the less privileged.
