Yvonne Okoro water project in Wongu3Yvonne Okoro on Tuesday brought joy to the people of Wungu in Walewale, a community in the Northern Region. The actress commissioned a borehole project to provide water for the small village. 

Wungu, for a very long time had battled with water scarcity with natives including school children walking several kilometres in search of water every day.

As part of Yvonne’s annual charity exercise, she decided to go to the aid of the community by funding the drilling of a borehole. Business activities in the community on Tuesday came to standstill for a while to give the actress a rousing welcome for the commissioning ceremony which paved way for the borehole to be used.

Commissioning the project, Yvonne said, “It gives me joy to offer a supporting hand to those who need it in society. I hope this project will go a long way to impact positively on the lives of the people of Wungu especially the children and women. I want use this opportunity to thank God and everyone else who supported this project. I also thank African World Airline (AWA) for bringing us this far for a successful commissioning ceremony.”

Yvonne and her team including her friend, TV personality and lawyer, Sandra Ankobiah had earlier paid a courtesy call to the chief of Tamale, Naa Dakpena Alhassan and the chief of Wungu at his palace.

She also visited West Mamprusi District offices and Daa-Gyei Academy, where she advised children at the school to take their lessons serious.
