The Ghana Red Cross Society is set to build 100 2-bedroom houses for victims of flood in the Upper East Region of Ghana.
OMGvoice reports that the grand initiative is being undertaken by The Ghana Red Cross Society in collaboration with the Swiss Red Cross.
Reports indicate that the initiative is the second of its kind as a similar project was undertaken by both organizations at the Kologu-Zuo, Kologuo—Torand-Doba communities in the region.
The announcement about the project was made as the Ghana Red Cross Society recently attended to flood victims in 32 communities of the Upper East Region.
Between October 6 and October 12 in 2019, the region experienced massive rainfalls. It led to the destruction of numerous properties and loss of lives.
Many people were also displaced and had to be sheltered. The full mast of the problem was brought to bare after the Ghana Red Cross and NADMO went to the rescue of the victims.
On behalf of the beneficiaries, a former Assembly-member for Tanzui-Zorbisi-Sokabisi in the Bolgatanga Municipality, Sampson Atinga, thanked the Ghana Red Cross and the International Federation of the Red Cross for the gesture.
It is reported that the Swiss Red Cross has been very helpful for years to Ghana and victims of several unfortunate events.
Earlier, they supported 600 families of the affected under the Water Sanitation and Hygiene WASH, programme.
There have been similar reports in relation to health and the provision of useful logistics lately.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a 21-year-old woman had to deliver her baby in a tricycle in the Wa East District of the Upper West Region on Friday, December 13, 2019, due to the lack of an ambulance.
