Accra, Ghana’s vibrant capital, thrives with a rich tapestry of culture, diversity, and an active diaspora. Quality water is a must.
The myth that because a house looks nice means that they have access to clean water has been debunked.
Most homes in Accra rarely clean their water storage tanks.
Amid efforts like Beyond the Return and robust government program namely the Diaspora Affairs, Office of the President (DAOOP) encouraging Ghanaians in the diaspora to return home, one defining element shapes their lives significantly: water.
With a booming property market showcasing attractive buildings in areas like East Legon, Airport Residential Area and the Ridge, Accra is the place to be.
In Accra, reliance on water storage tanks is widespread for the storage of water, with brands like Polytank and Sintex dominating this market.
Unfortunately, the maintenance of these tanks is often overlooked, impacting the health of returning citizens accustomed to better water sources in their home countries.
The significance of water in the diaspora’s lives isn’t devoid of challenges.
Irregular access to clean water and the looming threat of pollution poses substantial obstacles to community well-being.
Waterborne diseases not only affect livelihoods but also compromise the overall health of the diaspora and their families.
A straightforward yet impactful solution involves relying on bottled water for consumption.
Additionally, ensuring the professional cleaning of water storage tanks bi-annually could significantly alleviate these challenges.
