Accra, 23 March, 2022 / 2:09 pm (ACI Africa).
On the occasion of World Water Day marked March 22, the leadership of Salesian Missions, the U.S. development arm of the Religious Institute of the Salesians of Don Bosco (SDB), has reviewed its clean water initiatives around the globe, including Africa.
In a Tuesday, March 22 report, the leadership of the New York-based agency highlights water projects in Ghana, Nigeria and Zambia, through the “Clean Water Initiative.”
“Many places around the globe lack safe clean water for drinking, cooking and other needs,” the Director of Salesian Missions, Fr. Gus Baek, has been quoted as saying in the report.
Fr. Baek adds, “In response to this ongoing water crisis, Salesian Missions has continued its ‘Clean Water Initiative’ – which makes building wells and supplying fresh, clean water a top priority for every community in every country in which Salesian missionaries work.”
In the West African nation of Ghana, Salesian Missions has facilitated access to clean for close to “5,000 people in villages across the Bono region of Ghana.”
