The Adventist Development Relief Agency (ADRA) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) have worked together to undertake development projects at Sikaa in the Nkoranza District of the Brong-Ahafo Region to improve the standard of living of the people.
The two organisations have provided the community with two hand dug wells and 20 household toilets to promote sanitation and supplied fertilizer and Wellington boots and other agriculture inputs to farmers to facilitate their work for bumper harvest.
Mr Kwaku Baffoe-Adamu, Assemblyman of the area, who told the Ghana News Agency at Sikaa on Thursday about the projects, said, since ADRA adopted the community about three years ago, there had been an improvement in the lives of the people.
He commended ADRA and USAID for pooling resources to train people at Sikaa on health management to sensitise the people on sound environmental practices and the preparation of balanced diet to ensure good health to prevent them from contracting communicable diseases.
Mr Baffoe-Adamu also praised ADRA for supporting the people to plant 500 seedlings of shady trees to protect the environment and to serve as wind breaks.
