About 1,500 people in 12 zones of the Upper West Region, will, today, Tuesday, 4 September 2018, receive relief items from the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) after they were affected by last Friday’s heavy rains in the capital, Wa.

The four-hour torrential rain flooded major parts of Wa and its surroundings, displacing 1,500 people and 118 households and destroying property.

According to Regional NADMO Coordinator, Isaac Seidu, a number of water bodies including wells, have been contaminated in the process and farmlands submerged.

Speaking to Class News, he said NADMO will begin distribution of relief items today.

He said: “The number of people actually affected is about 1,500 and the number of households is 118. We also counted 33 wells in the area. Their foodstuffs were also affected and other belongings, so, NADMO, in collaboration with RCC, will be sending some relief items including foodstuffs to the affected victims…”
