With all eagerness, people arrive daily at the hard water site in vehicles loaded with gallons to fill them up, convey them to their various destinations and administer them to the sick who with time, recover from their respective ailments after drinking cups of the hard water daily.
All manner of diseases such as stroke, malaria, asthma, sexual weakness, gonorrhea, typhoid fever, high blood pressure, piles, diabetes, skin rashes, jaundice, plus a host of others, have been allegedly cured by the water, hence the high patronage.
Apart from Saudi Arabia and Israel, Adomfe community of Ghana, according to reports, is the only place where such hard water can be found and a miraculous fact about the mysterious water is that it never runs out, nor does it dry up no matter how severe the * Harmattan season becomes.
[* The Harmattan is a cold-dry and dusty trade wind, blowing over the West African sub-region. This northeasterly wind blows from the Sahara Desert into the Gulf of Guinea between the end of November and the middle of March (Winter). ]
According to a laboratory analysis report conducted by the Department of Theoretical and Applied Biology of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, the Adomfe borehole is of good quality.
In an interview with the paper, the chief of Adomfe community, Nana Adjei Adomfe II, announced that the presence of the hard water in Ghana is a clear blessing from God since Ghana is the only country where it could be found.
Ghanaians, he challenged, should visit in their numbers and seize the opportunity since it serves as the nation’s alternative source of healing for the sick.
Nana Adomfe II, who serves as a living testimony, is said to have gained his full recovery from a severe stroke which seized his movement for years after he took some cups of the hard water.
All medical attempts to cure him of the sickness proved futile until one night when he was directed by the gods of the land in a dream to drink some of the hard water so he can recover from the ailment.
Apart from its medicinal properties, it has lifted the image of the community and that proceeds from the sale of the hard water have helped in the area of developmental projects.
He added that proceeds have facilitated the construction of an ultra-modern 14-seater lavatory, helped in the renovation of a Roman Catholic Basic School, the construction of a mechanized borehole for a clinic in the community, and the connection of water to the teachers’ bungalow.
