Lawoshime residents plea for a bridge so that students can commute to school each day

In order to facilitate travel, residents of the farming towns of Lawoshime, Hagodzi, Mamime, and Songbe in the Keta Municipality in the Volta region have made an appeal for assistance in building bridges over the river.

They voiced concern on the daily risk pupils took by swimming across the river to get to school.

According to Mr. Michael Keku, the assistant principal at Lawoshime M/A Basic School, the situation was

disturbing “because so many students now suffer from water-borne illnesses because they frequently cross the stream.”

He claimed that some of the younger members of the communities were unable to attend school because they were no longer willing to risk their lives in order to cross the river.

In order to facilitate movement, he made appeals to locals, charitable organizations, and the government.

Mr. Keku praised the Ghana National Association of Teachers and the Coalition of Concern Teachers for helping the school by giving the teachers a canoe, a raincoat, and boots to help them move around.

In an interview with GNA, Mr. Alex Ehia, the Assembly Member for the region, claimed that they had been denied access to a number of development projects, such as adequate roads, health facilities, and school infrastructure.

He claimed that since then, “the only health center and the Six-Unit classroom block under construction in 2020 have been left to rot.”

Because there isn’t a hospital in the area and the roads are bad, Mr. Ehia claimed that pregnant women, sick children, and other locals constantly struggle to get access to high-quality healthcare.

He said that if the matter was resolved, it would lessen the region’s many difficulties. He requested the government to assist in resolving their problems.
