YEN.com.gh has sighted photos of a young Ghanaian lady who has chosen to touch the lives of people living in her neighbourhood by creating a tap outside her house for then to source from it.

After the President Akufo-Addo's directive instructing the Ghana Water Company to suspend the payment of water bills for the next three months, Gina Mimi Love took giant strides to help the deprived in her community have a piece of this privilege.

Her action is admirable and has been lauded by friends and some Facebook users.

She shared the photos with the caption, "I just fixed tap water outside my house for my neighbors, who don’t have running water in their houses.

Thanks to H. E. Nana Addo Danquah Akufo Addo. Mr President, Ghana appreciates your efforts.

He has done his part. I’ve done my part, you too do yours. We’re all in this together,"

Meanwhile, the Minister for Sanitation and Water Resources, Cecilia Abena Dapaah, has revealed that the Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) will adhere to the President’s directives only under one condition.

According to her, since the GWCL does not work in isolation, the water would only flow through the taps only if the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) provides electricity to them.

Speaking in an interview on Onua FM’s Yen Sempa, she said the Electricity Company of Ghana has been spoken to in this regard to do the needful.
