May is Australian Rotary Health Month

For over 20 years, Michael Anyekase has crisscrossed Ghana
 drilling boreholes and installing hand pumps on wells to provide clean water.
 Water for drinking, washing, and flushing toilets.
"There is nothing more satisfying than when fresh water comes out of the well
 and the children shout, 'Hey, water! Water!'" says Anyekase,
 who works for Water in Africa, a nongovernmental organization (NGO).
In partnership with Rotary members from across the globe,
 Anyekase's dedication has helped eradicate Guinea worm disease 
and lessen the cases of dysentery, diarrhea, 
and other common diseases associated with dirty water.
 In fact, Rotary has provided more sources of drinking water in Ghana
 than any other NGO, Anyekase says.
Many water projects in Ghana are being carried out as part
 of the Rotary International/USAID H2O Collaboration. 
The effort is providing more than 100 villages with clean water
 through installation of boreholes with hand pumps,
 along with sanitation facilities and hygiene training.
According to a review of the partnership by Aguaconsult, 
an independent contractor, more than 85 percent of Ghanaians 
now have access to clean water, surpassing
 the United Nations Millennium Development 
Goal of 78 percent by 2015.
