Ghana: No Limits Provides Flood Victims with Support

Ghana Flood

Victims of the Akosmobo Dam spill in the North Tongu and Central Tongu districts of Ghana’s Volta Region have received donations of relief items from No Limits Charity.

Development Diaries reports that the charity organisation donated school supplies, cloths, school uniforms, school bags, and shoes.

It is understood that the donation is part of the organisation’s support for the education and well-being of children affected by the floods.

More than 26,000 have been impacted by severe flooding in the region following the release of water from the Akosombo and Kpong dams into the Volta River.

Also, about 19,743 children are currently unable to attend school as a result of the spillage, according to Child Rights International (CRI).

In her remarks, the Chief Executive Officer of No Limits Charity, Rita Garglo, said education is key to a better future, hence the organisation’s dedication to ensuring every child affected by the flood has access to quality learning materials.

‘For children who have lost their homes and possessions, something as simple as a pair of slippers or shoes can make a world of difference’.

‘This is to ensure that these children have access to comfortable and protective footwear, allowing them to walk confidently towards their dreams’.

As thousands continue to grapple with the aftermath of the floods, the government must wade in by providing relief and support to those affected.
