Residents of Domeabra and Pakyi N0.7 in the Amansie South District of the Ashanti Region are appealing to the government for assistance in rehabilitating their roads and connecting them to the national grid.

They describe life in the community as unbearable due to these challenges, which are hindering the smooth transportation of goods and people and adversely affecting economic activities in the area.

According to Samuel Adu Gyamfi, a member of the community, the road and network challenges have led to difficulties in attracting teachers to the community, impacting the academic development of their children.

Additionally, the lack of proper roads is impeding the transportation of agricultural produce to market centres, exacerbating the living conditions of the residents.

The residents are urging the government to intervene and improve their living conditions.

These concerns were raised after the Brother’s Foundation distributed educational learning materials worth millions of cedis to schools in the area.

The District Chief Executive for the Amansie South District, who is a member of the foundation, acknowledged the challenges faced by the communities, including electricity, roads, network connectivity, and school learning materials.

Mr Gyamfi assured the residents that plans are underway to address the challenges, with the communities expected to be connected to the national grid by the end of 2024.
