Victims of Easter Monday’s rainstorm disaster in the Akim Oda Constituency in the Birim Central Municipality have received support from the Member of Parliament for Akim Oda Constituency, Alexander Akwesi Acquah, together with Mr. Yaw Osafo Marfo, Special Advisor to the President.

The two individuals made a donation of thirty-five thousand Ghana cedis (GHc35,000) and packets of roofing sheets to the NADMO Coordinator for further distributions amongst affected persons.

The two leaders in the company of the NADMO Coordinator and other executives of the New Patriotic Party paid a visit to the victims to sympathize with them, and promised to help fix the situation.

At about 3pm on Easter Monday a very heavy rainstorm hit the Akim Oda Constituency destroying properties worth thousands of cedis.

Some of the properties destroyed were school buildings, electric poles, homes of some constituents, stores, church buildings, and a radio station’s mast.

Also, the storm had an effect on vegetation as many trees fell in the communities.

Mr. Yaw Osafo Marfo stated that he is in talks with benevolent institutions to come to the aid of the people adding that he is hopeful of a positive outcome.

He applauded the MP of the area for his selfless efforts to ensure that the affected persons receive some aid.

Meanwhile, Mr Akwesi Aquah urged the affected victims not to worry, adding they are going to see to it that everyone is sorted out.
