Samini campaigns for safe water

Award-winning Ghanaian dancehall artist Emmanuel Andrews, popularly known as Samini in showbiz, has joined the global campaign for the provision of safe drinking water for poor communities around the world, particularly Ghana.
The dancehall artist joined the campaign with a stage performance at Safe Water Network’s summer benefit concert on July 23, this year at the Fairfield Theatre Company in Fairfield, Connecticut, USA.
Sponsored by Joanne Woodward-Newman to celebrate the philanthropic legacy of Safe Water Network founder Paul Newman, the concert sought to raise funds to increase access to safe drinking water in rural areas in Ghana.
Samini, who partnered Safe Water Network in organising the concert, observed the need for celebrities like himself and wealthy persons around the world to cultivate the habit of giving back to society.
In a statement released by Safe Water Network Ghana and signed by its Programme Associate, Gloria Dzifa Aguze, Samini stated that “As we go up the ladder of life, we have to look back to where we have come from and give back to communities. Good clean water is very essential for our health and it pains me to see that some of my people don’t have access to that.”
On Samini’s performance at the concert, the statement indicated that “Following sellout concerts across the US and Europe, Samini and his dynamic musicians brought down the house with very good music, all benefitting safe drinking water in his native country, Ghana.”
“The need for water in rural communities is great. Government alone cannot solve problems with reliable safe water access. Everyone has a role to play and we are excited at this opportunity to work with Samini,” Charles Nimako, Ghana Country Director of Safe Water Network, said.
