Some residents who reportedly live in Ashaiman have been spotted using wheelbarrows and manual trucks as a means of transportation after heavy rainfall.
It appears from the video as though the heavy rainfall took many people by surprise and got them stranded at areas where they could not move without walking in deep water.
Some enterprising young men who noticed the situation decided to make some means for themselves by using wheelbarrows and trucks to transport the stranded people.

Although the exact part of Ashaiman where the incident occurred is not known, the video has since stirred some reactions online.

Meanwhile, a 95-year-old World War II (WWII) veteran, ex-Private Joseph Ashiteye Hammond, has raised £18,000 (GhC 130k) to support frontline workers and vulnerable veterans in Africa as his contribution towards the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
According to Graphic.com.gh, the funds generated would be used to purchase personal protective equipment (PPE) and essentials for frontline workers of Commonwealth countries of Africa.
It is indicated that a portion of the funds will also be used to support some vulnerable veterans, particularly, in Hammond's home country, Ghana.
