Water Shortage
Two non-governmental organisations (NGOs); the Save the Mothers Trust (SMT), based in the United Kingdom and The Light Foundation (TLF), based in Ghana, have jointly constructed 41 wells in some communities in the northern region.

The projects were aimed at ending the long standing water problems those communities were confronted with and to improve the living conditions of the people as it will save them time to do other economic activities.

Other initiatives undertaken by the NGOs include the distribution of sheep, food items, used clothing, stationery and confectionery to widows, orphans and schoolchildren in Tamale and its envi-rons.

The leader of a three-member team from the SMT, UK that visited Ghana to inspect the projects, Mr Mohammed Shahid. noted that the sheep were given to the widows to enable them go into animal rearing as a means of earning a livelihood.

He expressed the hope that with, the cooperation of the TLF, more projects would be established in the north.

According to him, the aim of the SMT was to, among other things, provide potabje water to deprived communities, as well as help promote self-reliance through education and providing food aid to the vulnerable in society.

The team, upon the request of the Chief Executive Officer of the TLF, Alhaji All Abubakar Napari, later visited the ibn Abass Primary School and distributed cookies to the pupils.

They also visited the Islamic Primary School in Tamale, where the SMT had finalised arrangements with the school authorities to support the school wiih desks’, school uniforms, computers, library books and stationery to make the school more conducive for learning.
