COMMISSIONING OF BOREHOLES WITHIN THE BIAKOYE DISTRICT
The District Chief Executive, Hon. Millicent Kabuki Carboo led the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN – OPERATION BLESSING TEAM) an NGO, which drilled thirteen (13) boreholes within the district, to commission them. The Country Manager of OPERATION BLESSING, Mr. Samuel Adotei said, they have provided these boreholes because of the humanitarian nature of their work.
