Geodrill makes donation to purified water system for women’s shelter in Ghana

Leading West African drilling services provider Geodrill has made a further donation of GH₵20,000 (US$3,2250) towards the treatment of borehole water for the Pearl Safe Haven shelter in Ghana.

The Ghanaian subsidiary of Geodrill said the gesture is geared towards ensuring the women in the shelter get purified water for their basic needs. They will also be able to produce potable sachet water that can be distributed outside of the centre.

Pearl Safe Haven project manager Audrey Ankah praised the company for the support provided to the not-for-profit organisation in recent years: “Geodrill has bee extremely supportive of this project not only by donating but also supporting us to ensure that we are able to generate some much needed funds to support the operations of the shelter,” she said.

Last year, Geodrill constructed a piece of borehole water infrastructure for potable water, as part of its overall ESG programme in Ghana, where its West African hub facility is located.

Geodrill’s ESG projects in the country cover a broad scope, including the provision of power generators and borehole underground water systems to local communities, schools and orphanages across Ghana.

Pearl Safe Haven is an non-governmental organisation that provides temporary housing and support services to female survivors of gender-based violence.
