The Jirapa District Assembly has released GH¢8,000 for the maintenance of water systems to ensure that the people have access to regular and sustainable potable water.

Very soon the people in the Jirapa Township would experience regular flow of potable water, Mr Bernard K. Puozuing, Jirapa District Chief Executive announced at the first ordinary meeting of the assembly at Jirapa on Friday.

Mr Puozuing however expressed dissatisfaction about the sanitation challenges in the township and said the assembly had sponsored a training workshop for 26 persons, comprising Sanitation Guards and Environmental Health Officers to educate the people to observe personal and environmental hygiene.

He said there was the urgent need for residents to avoid the practice of open defecation as part of their social responsibility towards the Community-Led Total Sanitation Programme, which aims at providing household latrines and facilitate the practice of digging and burying of human waste.

Mr Puozuing said the assembly is sponsoring 11 midwives under training in various midwifery training schools to serve the district health facilities after graduating.
