The Member of Parliament for Ayawaso West Wuogon, Lydia Seyram Alhassan has called on corporate bodies for support for victims of Friday night’s inferno in her constituency.
Fire gutted over 100 wooden structures that serve as accommodation for residents of Shiashie, a slum community around East Legon in Accra.
The Member of Parliament for West Wuogon (AWW) Constituency, Hon. Lydia Seyram Alhassan set up a Ghc 20,000 fund to support residents of Shaishie who lost their properties through last Friday evening fire outbreak.
“I’m pleading with all cooperate bodies to help in supporting the Shiashie victims who lost all their properties, is very sad incident and as MP I can’t do it alone,’’ Lydia Seyram Alhassan exclusively told Accra-Kingdom FM 107.7
We have a fund. So far, we’ve been able to raise about GH¢20,000 but it’s woefully inadequate,” she added
She also used the opportunity to express her gratitude to all and sundry who provided accommodation for the displaced residents especially the Shiashie Presby church for giving the victims the church premises to sleep.
