From the Water Works Area in the Eastern Regional capital, our cameras captured the majestic flowing waters of the Densu River.

This is the source of treated water for over One Hundred and Eighty Thousand (180,000) people in Koforidua.

Although the river appears clean on first sight, many villages at the downstream are facing great health challenges since their only option is to drink the 'unsafe' water.

In fact, six persons have already died in the process.

The government should implement the Sustainable Development Goal Six which talks about "clean water and sanitation for all."

This is a thirty-minute documentary on the neglect, hopelessness and thirst among rural farmers in the Suhum Municipality.
