Rainstorm victims appeal to assembly for building materials


Rainstorm victims at Dokorochiwah near Suhum, have appealed to the Suhum Kraboa Coaltar District to provide them with building materials to enable them rehabilitate their houses.

The rainstorm, which hit the township last year, destroyed many houses with many others sustaining various degrees of injuries.

They said persistent appeal to the then District Chief Executive, Mr Michael Kofi Mensah and Mr Godfred Otchere, former Member of Parliament fell on deaf ears.

Making the appeal on behalf of the people on Tuesday, Mrs Rose Ofori Nyarko, Assembly Member for the area told the Ghana News Agency that because of the high cost of building materials, many people could not afford and were now homeless.

Some are living with their friends and relatives at nearby villages, he added.

The rainstorm also affected the six classroom block Presbyterian Primary School, the chief's palace and the market in the area.

Teachers are now conducting classes in Church auditoriums and in uncompleted buildings.
