The Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) sector in Ghana woke up on the morning of 1st July 2017 to sad news; the demise of Ing Joseph Kwame Asante through a tragic motor accident near Konongo on the N6 (Accra-Kumasi Highway).

Before his untimely death, Ing. Asante was the Deputy Chief of Party of the USAID funded WASH for Health Project which is being implemented in selected Districts of 6 Regions in the country. He was the Project Director for the Water Access, Sanitation and Hygiene for Urban Poor (WASH-UP) Project which ended in September 2016. Ing. Asante had earlier worked with Irrigation Dvelopment Autority (IDA) in Accra and also the Community Water and Sanitation Agency (CWSA) in the Central Region and the Ashanti Region.

He will be dearly missed for his liveliness, pragmatism, depth and breadth of knowledge in the sector, open-mindedness, exemplary leadership and sense of duty. Your colleagues, friends and mentees deeply miss you. Rest in Perfect Peace Joseph Kwame Asante but your memory lives on in our minds and our hearts.
