Ghanaian attacker, Bernard Tekpetey has commissioned a mechanized borehole for Gomoa Olefreku in the Central Region.
The commissioning of the project according to the Lidogorets Razgrad forward would help the community since they would no longer spend time to go in search of water.
The water project forms part of the initiative undertaken by his foundation to construct mechanized boreholes and water systems for struggling communities.
Speaking after the commissioning of the project on Tuesday, December 26, 2023, Tekpetey disclosed he is really excited and has in his plans to others.
“We had a successful program and what really matters is the impact that we are making in the life of people. You could see how happy they were. For the past years they’ve suffered for good water and you can see how excited they are now.
“We just pray that anybody who is going to drink this water will be healed through God. This is a big blessing not only to me but to the town itself.
“It’s really excited for my team to come here to find a place like Gomoa Olefreku to make such a project. We just pray that things will work out.
“For me making an in important is the most important thing in the life of the society. Our theme for the year is taken from 1 Timothy 1:5 which speaks about charity and love. Is all about having the love of making something out of your heart.”
Tekpetey was instrumental in Ludogorets’ domestic double success last season, contributing 10 goals and nine assists across all competitions.
He has continued his fine form this season, scoring 11 goals in all competitions, including four in the Champions League and Europa League qualifiers.
The 26-year-old forward has been named in Ghana’s provisional squad for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) due to his impressive form in Bulgaria. This comes after he was overlooked in the past.
He has made only two appearances for Ghana and was part of the squad for the 2017 AFCON, when he was still developing his skills at German side Schalke 04.
Ghana’s AFCON campaign is set to begin with a match against Cape Verde on January 14, 2024, followed by encounters with Egypt on January 18 and Mozambique on January 22.
