A1 Radio, subsidiary of the Agreed Best Communication Company, in partnership with the Millar Open University and Narrative Changers, a pressure group in the Upper East Region, has launched a campaign to coordinate the collection of items in support of flood victims in parts of the Volta Region.
In a statement issued by William Nlanjerbor Jalulah, General Manager of A1 Radio, on behalf of the three institutions, Mr. Jalulah communicated the socio-economic impact of the floods on the people of the area.
“Many communities in the North, South, and Central Tongu districts of the Volta Region have recently been struck by a devastating disaster due to the spillage from the Akosombo Dam. In this moment of crisis, we turn to you with hope and urgency, seeking your assistance to help the disaster victims rebuild their lives.”
“The impact of this disaster has been far-reaching, leaving many of the victims homeless and without access to basic necessities including shelter, healthcare, food and water. The emotional and physical toll on these individuals is immeasurable, and they need our support now more than ever. We are well informed that the victims include citizens beyond natives of the regions in the south. Our brothers and sisters are also victims out there.”
Mr. Jaluluah, through the statement, made a strong case for the people of the Upper East Region to support families and organisations in the area to recover.
“Your dispatch contributions, in-kind and in-cash, reaching A1 RADIO, channeled to the victims will make a significant difference in their lives. Your support will provide immediate relief through shelter, food, and medical care, and will also help in the long-term recovery and rebuilding process.”
In line with this, Professor David Millar, the founder and president of the Millar Open University, has donated Ghc1,000 to the campaign. After his donation, Professor Millar ecnouraged other residents in the Upper East Region to make similar donations to the flood victims in the Volta Region.
He explained that leaders of the fundraising exercises would reach out to Members of Parliament as well as other identified leaders and influential people in the Upper East Region to help support the cause.
