Beposo (Ash), May 19, GNA - The members of the Ashanti regional branch of Ghana Muslim Mission (GMM) is contributing over 55 million cedis towards the construction of an underground water tank for its hospital at Beposo in the Sekyere West district.

They have so far spent 40 million cedis on the project, which can contain 20,000 gallons of water.

"Use your energy and skills not only to support and promote the activities and programmes of the Mission and Islam but also to improve on your living standards", he said.

Ten million cedis was realised at the function.
