The John Nwiah Amenlemah Foundation in the Jomoro district, is forming Sanitation Clubs in the district to help improve sanitation and ensure environmental cleanliness.

The founder of the Foundation, Mr John Nwiah Amenlemah, made this known at the formation of the Half Assini Club over the weekend.

Mr Amenlemah who has stayed in the United States of America and Norway for a total of 27 years, said the move is his contribution towards improving health within the district.

He said the Foundation has already formed the club at Tikobo Number One, adding that the next club will be formed at Bonyere and other communities.

Mr Amenlemah said for formation of the Clubs is to inculcate voluntarism in the youth in the district.

He said the failure of Ghanaian youth to participate in communal labour has contributed to the emergence of filth, resulting in the outbreak of cholera and other diseases in the cities.

Briefing the media on the clean-up exercise at Half Assini, Mr Amenlemah said the members of the Club led the people to desilt gutters, weeded over-grown areas, and swept the principal streets of the town.

He appealed to the Jomoro District Assembly to provide logistics, including rakes, to the clubs in the various communities, to enhance their work, adding that those provided by the foundation were few.

He said the clubs are non-partisan, and therefore urged the youth to join.
