The Sekondi Wesley Methodist Cathedral was on Tuesday filled to capacity as sympathisers thronged there to bid farewell to the four out of the five victims in last Friday rainfall disaster that hit the Nygeresia community in the Metropolis.

Torrential rains witnessed by the Metropolis two weeks ago, resulted in the collapse of a block house at Nygeresia, a fishing community within the STMA claiming the lives of four siblings and grandson.

The one-year-old baby that was part of the incident was buried earlier.

The Chairman of the Peace Council, Reverend Ernest Kwofie, in a sermon urged the bereaved families to have hope in Christ and that many that trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ got positive results.

Likening, their predicament to that of Job in the Bible, the Man of God encouraged them to have hope in the Lord Jesus who after all the trials of Job restored to him all that he had lost in times past.

Describing the innocence of the children, he urged the gathering to lead morally upright lives in order to have a portion in the second coming of Christ.

The funeral was largely supported by the local government administration, the members of Parliament for Sekondi and Essikado and the Regional NADMO with cash donations, drinks, food items, burials items including; the grave, coffin, shrewd and hearse.

Mr Anthony KK Sam while expressing condolences from the government encouraged communities to adhere to sanitation regulations, stop building on water ways and ensure cleaner environment to avoid such man-made disasters.

In attendance were, Mrs Gifty Eugenia Kusi, the Deputy Minister, Mr. Ganiyu Mohammed, Regional NADMO Director, Mr Anthony KK Sam, Lawyer Agyapa Mercer, Sekondi MP, John Davies, PM for Effia-kwesimintim among other high profile Men of God.
