The Member of Parliament for Assin North has urged the Mills administration to set up a fund that will ameliorate the devastating effects of the earthquake on the government and people of Haiti.

Aid agencies are appealing for water and food items for thousands of survivors in a deadly earthquake disaster that claimed countless number of lives.

Kennedy Agyapong told Joy news he is ready to donate $10,000 to any fund that will be set up by government.

He said African countries must begin to demystify the 'poor mentality' noting that will earn the continent the needed respect from the world.

“It looks as if Africans we consider ourselves poor and therefore what is even important to mankind we stay out. That is why we do not earn respect all over the world,” the NPP fire brand said.

The Deputy Information Minister Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwah in an interview welcomed the donation by Hon Agyapong, adding government through the National Disaster Management Organisation is coordinating a relief package for the Haitian cause.

In the meantime, Mr Okudzeto said donations can be channeled to the World Vision office in Accra which is being coordinated by the United Nations on behalf of the people of Ghana.
