Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has personally donated Ghc 160000 to help those affected by the leak from the Akosombo Dam.
The leakage has caused the displacement of many communities in eight districts, predominantly in the Volta, Eastern, and Greater Accra Regions.
On Wednesday, October 17, 2023, Dr. Bawumia made a contribution while touring some of the Volta Region’s impacted areas.
The afflicted persons have been relocated to 20 holding centers by the government, in coordination with the National crisis Management Organization (NADMO), and an Inter-Ministerial Committee established to oversee the crisis. They have also been given emergency relief supplies.
Dr. Bawumia’s gift is intended to supplement the victims’ assistance from the government.
The Vice President informed the victims of his sympathy and the government’s unshakable dedication to improving their living conditions.
“When I look into the eyes of our mother’s, fathers, sisters and brothers who are seated here, I see so much sadness. Their lives have been turned upside down as a result of what has happened…I want to assure that government will do everything possible to assist the affected people to provide relief and also restore the livelihood of those affected”, Dr. Bawumia said.
