Member of Parliament for Krachi West in the Oti Region, Helen Adjoa Ntoso has donated bags of cement and 40 bundles of roofing sheets as relief package for victims of two farming communities, Twereso and Wurotor in a recent rainstorm in the area.
The rainstorm which occurred last week Tuesday in the two communities claimed one life and destroyed the roofing of many houses leaving over 200 people displaced.
Speaking in an interview with Voltaonlinegh, Hon. Ntoso bemoaned the continuous destruction of the environment through illegal chainsaw operations and reckless bush burning.
The result, according to the former Volta Regional Minister, had been that there were not enough trees to serve as windbreak to reduce the impact of strong winds that often accompanied rains in the area.
She therefore, advised the people to help check and brace their building strongly in order to avoid such occurrences in the future.
A father, Tetteh Odue, who lost his 2-year old son to the rainstorm together with some affected victims who received the relief items, expressed their profound gratitude to the Lawmaker for her support and called on other individuals and groups to also come to their aid.
