Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has personally donated GH160,000 to help those affected by the catastrophic water breach from the Akosombo Dam.
On Wednesday, October 17, Dr. Bawumia paid a visit to a few of the Volta Region’s devastated communities in an effort to help the victims.
It was stated that Dr. Bawumia’s private donation was made to supplement the assistance the government has already provided to the victims who have been forced to relocate.
The Vice President offered his condolences and reassured the victims that the government was committed to both immediate relief and helping the afflicted people go back to their normal lives.
“There is such pain in the eyes of our moms, fathers, sisters, and brothers who are seated here. What has happened has completely changed their life, according to Dr. Bawumia.
“These are folks who were going about their daily lives as usual to take care of themselves, and I am pained by the fact that they now actually depend on others for their livelihood.
