The management of Citi FM/Citi TV has donated relief items worth thousands of cedis to flood victims in the South Dayi and Kpando constituencies of the Volta Region.
The donation was made in response to appeals from the Members of Parliament (MPs) for the two constituencies, Rockson-Nelson Dafeamekpor and Dela Sowah, respectively.
The items, which were presented to the MPs at the premises of Citi FM on Monday, November 6, 2023, included rice, drinks, water, clothes, and biscuits.
Receiving the items, the MPs expressed their gratitude to Citi FM/Citi TV for the gesture. They said the items would go a long way in helping the affected communities to recover from the floods.
“It has been very terrible and the impact in Kpando started way before now,” Sowah said. “In January, the flood was so terrible that our pontoon was even submerged. Over 700 households have been affected. The floods have caused a lot of damage in our constituency, and the people are struggling to cope.”
“The immediate needs are medicine, clothing, and all that,” Sowah added.
Dafeamekpor also called on the government to come to the aid of his constituents.
The MPs urged other organizations and individuals to come to the aid of the affected communities.
“We need all the help we can get,” Dafeamekpor said. “The people of South Dayi are in desperate need of food, water, clothing, and shelter.”
The Managing Director of Citi TV/Citi FM, Samuel Attah Mensah, said the donation was part of the company’s ongoing efforts to support communities affected by the Akosombo Dam Spillage.
