The Widows and Orphans Movement, WOM an NGO, has presented assorted food items to victims of the 2020 flood disaster in three districts of the Upper East Region.

The support, which included bags of rice and maize, and canned fish, were given to 270 affected persons in Bolgatanga Municipal, Builsa North Municipal and Pusiga District.

In September 2020, the Upper East and North East Regions were hit by devastating flood caused by torrential rainfall and spillage of the Bagre Dam in Burkina Faso.

The situation led to the destruction of property, including houses, hectares of farms and loss of lives. Speaking at separate functions to distribute the food items, the Project Coordinator for Microcredit at WOM, Abang-GosGaninu, said the support was part of the NGO’s corporate social responsibility.

He explained that the beneficiaries were selected based on the recommendation of the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO).

The Project Coordinator said the intervention is aimed at offering relief to vulnerable families to provide food, especially for their children.

Expressing gratitude for the kind gesture, one of the beneficiaries, Madam Comfort Akolgo said due to the flood she and her family are finding life difficult and expressed the hope that the support would ameliorate their plight.
