The Centre for Social Justice (CSJ) has donated food stuffs, books, clothes and cash totaling totaling GHc10,000 to victims of the Keta tidal wave disaster which occured on November 7.
A CSJ delegation led by Comrades Philip Zumanu, Nii Armah Addy and Robert Dela Mawuenyegah made the presentation on December 2, 2021 to the Members of Parliament for Ketu South and Anlo Constituencies who received the donation on behalf of the people at a short ceremony at the Parliament House in Accra.
The move, according to the Centre, was a token gesture to help alleviate the plight of residents who lost livelihoods and properties to tidal waves in Keta and its surrounding areas last month.
The donation was made through generous voluntary contributions from members, experts and Fellows of the Centre for Social Justice.
“We appreciate this kind gesture from CSJ. We would also like to use the CSJ platform to appeal to other benevolent Ghanaians to support the completion of a facility to serve as a place of shelter for the displaced residents”, said the MP for Ketu South, Hon. Abla Dzifa Gomashie, as she received the donation.
On his part, Hon. Richard Kwame Sefe, MP for the Anlo Constituency appealed to the good people of Ghana to support him to build a school for the people of Fuveme in the Anlo Constituency in the Volta Region.
About 3,000 people in the Keta Municipality were rendered homeless after tidal waves swept through their homes on Sunday, November 7. Communities such as Abutiakope, Kedzikope and Keta Central were largely affected as affected homeless residents were left with nothing to salvage.
Affected residents, mainly children and women, had their residential abodes completely destroyed by the tidal waves.
