Water for a dry and thirsty land

YENDI, Ghana — The people of this rapidly growing city in Ghana’s predominantly Muslim north have a new mechanized well, thanks to Ghana West Africa Missions

The well will provide fresh water for 5,000 people per day, said Josiah Tilton, executive director of the church-supported, Searcy, Ark.-based nonprofit.

“This past dry season was an extra-long one in northern Ghana,” Tilton said, “Yendi is growing so quickly that it is in desperate need of additional water sources. Unfortunately, the resources for more water are inadequate, so we are taking it upon ourselves to help.”
