ACTNews, MAMPONTENG – Another Waqf Well from Indonesian waqf donors was built in Africa. In January, Global Wakaf – ACT finished the construction of a waqf well in the town of Mamponteng in Kwabre District, Ghana.
Firdaus Guritno of Global Humanity Response (GHR) – Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) mentioned that the people in Kwabre District often have difficulty getting clean water. The women and children used to fetch water from sources miles away.
In addition, with the policies of the International Monetary Funds and the World Bank that require water to be sold at market prices, the poor people in Ghana are forced to spend half their income just to buy water.
"Insha Allah, the waqf well can meet the water needs of 2,000 local residents. Woman and children no longer need to walk long distances to fetch water," said Firdaus, Tuesday (1/18/2022). The waqf well is also useful to help the local Muslims in their worship activities.
