Agave Development Association, in partnership with the Ship Owners and Agents, and Onix Data Centres associations, has extended a generous hand of support to alleviate the plight of flood victims in the South Tongu District of the Volta Region.
The donation, valued at GH¢60,000, comprised sachet water, 100 bags of 25 kg rice, sanitary towels, detergents, soft drinks, and other essentials.
Communities such as Sokpoe, Tefle, Fievie, Tademe, Agorme, Alikekope, and 14 others directly benefited from this relief initiative.
The flood, resulting from the Akosombo Dam spillage weeks ago, had receded, but many victims continued to face consequential challenges, prompting the collaborative effort to provide essential supplies.
Mr. Wilberforce Isaac Azumah, Chairman of the Agave Development Association, expressed the Association's commitment to supporting the victims throughout the recovery process.
He acknowledged that while the floodwaters had subsided, the aftermath required sustained assistance.
Representing the Ship Owners and Agents Association, Mr Justice Pobee appealed to individuals and other organizations to join hands in supporting flood victims across various communities.
He highlighted the importance of collective efforts in extending help to those in need.
Mr. Samuel Polley, Head of Communications at Onix Data Centres, emphasized the company's responsibility to stand with communities in times of need.
He affirmed the commitment of Onix Data Centres to providing ongoing support to alleviate the suffering of affected communities.
Gratitude was expressed to Romeo Hademe and Evelyn Goni of the Agave Development Association for their instrumental roles in ensuring the efficient distribution of relief items to the most affected communities.
The relief items were officially received by Mr Benjamin Amekudzi, the Assembly member for Tefle, who conveyed appreciation on behalf of the flood victims.
He assured the fair distribution of the items and appealed for additional support from corporate entities in Ghana.
