The Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission in Ghana has donated a quantity of food items estimated at about 20 million cedis or 2000 Ghana Cedis to victims of the Upper East flood disaster.

The Regional Minister, Mr Alhassan Samari, received the items, which included 120 mini-bags of maize, 10 mini-bags of sugar and 10 mini-bags of rice.

Alhaji Awudu Musah, Upper East Regional President of the Mission, who made the presentation, indicated that the consignment was the initial response of the Ahmadiyya Mission to the appeal for assistance for the flood victims, and that more relief aid would follow in due course.

"We believe it is only human that we come to the aid of our brothers in distress," he said, adding that although the donation was small, it was the hope of the Mission that the items would help ameliorate the suffering of the affected persons.

Mr. Samari expressed his appreciation to the Ahmadiyya Mission on behalf of the victims for the kind gesture and gave the assurance that the donation would get to the needy.

"In this time of need no donation is too small," he said and renewed his appeal to capable individuals, organisations and religious bodies to come to the assistance of flood victims in the area.

Later in an interaction with media representatives, Mr. Samari called for accuracy and circumspection with regard to reports they file on the disaster situation in the Region.

He pointed out that in view of the misfortune that had befallen it, the Region was now the centre of attention not only in Ghana, but also worldwide as a result of advanced information technology.

"Please do well to cross-check on any information you may not be very clear about, so that you do not misinform the rest of the nation and the outside world about the situation in the region," he said.
