Speaking to Accra-based Joy FM, Mr. Wereko Brobbey appealed to the public to support victims of the destruction.

He said the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) needs the public’s support to resettle victims of the rainstorm.

He said more than 200 homes in the Twifo Hemang Lower Denkyira constituency were affected.

According to him, some schools in the community have also been shut down as a result of the damage caused by the rainstorm.

It is such a disaster that our community has never known. Schools have been shut down because they were badly affected. We are looking forward to any form of support from well-meaning Ghanaians,” the MP said.

He added that he is constantly in touch with NADMO to fast-track support for the affected residents.

Most of the victims, he said, are “broken” after being displaced by the heavy downpour.

NADMO has done its assessment and they have forwarded it to the National Headquarters. I will do a follow up to as a matter of urgency seek support for the victims. My people are broken,” Mr. Wereko Brobbey said.
