Despite the fact that the Atebubu area program was formally terminated on Monday, August 14, 2023, MCE Hon. Edward Owusu declared that he desired World Vision Ghana would stay in the Municipality so that they may continue their life-changing interventions.

“We would have loved that World Vision Ghana remain in the Municipality to continue with  the good work they started 23 years ago.

World Vision Ghana has done what we wanted and we would appreciate it if same is done by other organizations for this Municipality”.

Families in the area had trouble with guinea worm infestation and Buruli ulcers before World Vision visited the Atebubu-Amantin Municipality 23 years ago because of insufficient access to clean, safe drinking water.

However, the government official stated that “previously there were guinea worm and buruli ulcer infestations in the Municipality but with the presence of World Vision Ghana it has become a thing of the past” in an interview given on the sidelines of a pomp durbar held to mark the official closure of the Atebubu area program.

He admitted that the organization has done much for his jurisdiction in areas such as Education, Health, Sanitation, advocacy, human empowerment, child protection, etc.

He pledged to take good care of all the facilities that have been handed over to the assembly for the sustenance and continuity of the programme.
