PENTSOS has constructed two (2) boreholes fitted with handpump for Gbonkoyiri and Vondiel communities in the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba District of the Savannah Region.
The Sawla Area Head of the church, Apostle William Ohemeng-Kwakye, commissioned the two water facilities separately on April 2, 2020. He was assisted by the Gindabour District Minister of the church, Overseer William Asare, in whose district the projects are located. In an address, the Area Head said that the construction of the boreholes formed part of the church’s Vision 2023 agenda on ‘Community Transformation.’ In attendance at the commissioning ceremony was the District Chief Executive and the District Police Commander of the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba District.
Touching on the current global health crisis, Apostle Ohemeng-Kwakye advised the people to adhere to the directives given by the President of the Republic to help in the fight against the Coronavirus outbreak. This, he said, includes observing social distancing, regular handwashing with soap under running water, using hand sanitizer, and avoiding handshaking.

In appreciation, the Roman Catholic Catechist of the area thanked The Church of Pentecost for the kind gesture and requested other churches in the district to do same for the communities in the district which are in dire need of water and other social interventions. The Chief and opinion leaders in the two communities thanked PENTSOS and the Church of Pentecost for the kind gesture.
