The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of Nzema East in the Western Region, Dorcas Elizabeth Amoah, has donated assorted relief items to victims of eight flood-affected communities within the Gwira enclave in the municipality.
The items included 80 bags of rice, cartons of cooking oil, cartons of sardines, cartons of key soap, among others.
Presenting the items on behalf of the MCE, the Municipal NADMO Coordinator of Nzema East, John Amoah, said the donation was to assuage the suffering of the victims. He called on companies, Non- Governmental Organisations (NGOs) and other individuals to come to the aid of the victims.
The MCE said the assembly had put measures in place to mitigate the plights of the people living in areas prone to flood. “The government has planned with the Assembly to work to ensure the people, especially those displaced, get their lives returned to normalcy,” he disclosed.
The NPP Coordinator for Bamiankor, Obed Tsibuah, who received the items on behalf of the victims, thanked the MCE for the kind gesture, and prayed for God’s blessing on her life.
He said the donation was timely, and appealed to other corporate organisations and philanthropists for support.
