God’s gift of clean water to Akwasi Addae community
During the early 1980s, guinea worm was endemic in a small community called Kwesi Addae in the Afram Plains South District of Ghana. The majority of its population of about 200 inhabitants were plagued with the burden of this disease. Moreover, the only source of drinking water was a small river called Dede. The river was not clean, but it was all the people had. This made combating Guinea worm more difficult for the community.
