In a display of community support and humanitarianism, Lions Clubs District 418 – Ghana, helped victims affected by the recent Akosombo Dam spillage. The club gave a substantial donation to support affected communities, after realizing a dire need for assistance.
The Akosombo Dam, a vital hydroelectric facility located on the Volta River, plays a significant role in providing electricity and water resources for the region. Unfortunately, recent events have led to a spillage, resulting in widespread damage and displacement of people in the surrounding areas.
Lions Clubs District 418 – Ghana, which is renowned for its dedication to community service, rallied to donate to those affected by the spillage. Their donations include essential supplies such as food, clean water, shelter, and medical supplies, which will directly benefit the displaced families and individuals.
Lion Prince Obeng Dwamena, the 2nd Vice District Governor of Lions Clubs District 418 – Ghana, on behalf of the District Governor expressed the heartfelt commitment to this humanitarian endeavour by Lions in Ghana.
“Our organization has always been dedicated to serving our communities and providing assistance in times of need. The Akosombo Dam spillage has created a critical situation, and we believe we must stand with those affected. We hope that our donation will provide some relief and support to the victims as they recover from this unfortunate event,” he said.
The Lions’ effort has been met with immense gratitude from the Member of Parliament for the area, Hon. Rockson-Nelson Dafeamekpor, the Chief and Elders, local authorities and the affected communities. According to a statement from one of the beneficiaries, “the immediate support provided by the Lions exemplifies the spirit of unity and solidarity in times of crisis.”
The club is extending an invitation to all individuals, organizations, and partners who wish to contribute to its cause. “Donations and assistance are welcome to ensure that help reaches as many affected individuals as possible,” said the club.
