About twenty communities have been displaced in the West Gonja District following this year’s torrential rains. They include Nabengu, Singa, Msi, Gangul and Kulu.

According to the District Planning Officer (DPO), Mr Alhassan Mesuna, properties such as cattle and crops have been lost to the floods.

He indicated that apart from the district capital, Daboya, which can be accessed by travelling on canoe for three miles, access to communities along the White Volta has been cut off.

He said fortunately, no life has been lost adding that displaced residents have moved to nearby communities.

Mr Mensua said the district was collaborating with stakeholders to bring relief to the people.

He however appealed for support from donor agencies and other benevolent societies and individuals.
He said the district was in need of first aid, drugs, food, clothes and water to prevent contraction of water borne diseases among other things.

The DPO said the district was one of the worse areas affected by this year’s torrential rains in the Northern part of the country and added that the floods have probably worsened as a result of the alledged spillage caused by the dam in Burkina Faso.
