The Appiatse Support Fund Committee is satisfied with the level of work at the green model community site.
Some members of the committee, who visited the site on Thursday to ascertain firsthand information on the progress of work, were impressed with the progress of work.
Speaking on behalf of her colleagues, Dr Mrs Antoinette Tsiboe-Darko, said, “we would like to assure Ghanaians and all donors that their monies are being put to good use.”
Touching on the significance of the project, Dr Tsiboe Darko, who is also a Community Development Analyst, said, “In the hierarchy of needs, shelter is very important and so providing shelter for individuals speaks volumes about how you have improved their standard of living.”
She complimented the Appiatse Reconstruction Implementation Team (ARIT), which is responsible for the project, for helping the government to make considerable success in its bid to restore the lives and livelihoods of the people of the town.
On his part, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Ghana Chamber of Mines and a member of the committee, Dr Sulemana Koney, urged the contractors to increase the speed at which they are currently working to prevent the rains from undermining their efforts.
That, he said, would encourage the donors to donate more.
Omanhene of Wassa Amenfi Traditional Area, Nana Tetrete Okuamoah Sekyim II, who is also a member of the committee, hoped that the project would be accelerated to enable his subjects to have comfortable shelter.
The Municipal Chief Executive of the Prestea Huni Valley Municipality, Mr Isaac Dasmani, disclosed that the Municipal Assembly has started registering the prospective occupants, stating that this would ensure easy identification when the project is completed.
The team also made a stop at the Odumase settlement, where the victims of the mining disaster are temporarily housed, to ascertain their welfare.
