Ghanaian musician Stonebwoy and his team from Livingstone Foundation were stupefied after seeing the colour of a river in a galamsey community in the Western Region.

Galamsey is a local word for illegal mining activities that do not abide by the rules of ethical mining. Thus, their actions cause serious harm to the environment and people.
