The Upper East Regional branch of the National Disaster Relief Management Organization (NADMO) will begin distributing relief items to over 400 victims whose farmlands and properties were devastated by the recent flood that affected the area.
The intensity of the flood swept across a vast area affecting homes, and washed away some poorly structured houses.
According to the Regional NADMO boss Timothy Anab, the items will be distributed in relation to how hard one was hit by the natural disaster. Mattresses, roofing sheets, plastic products for domestic use and food items form a bulk of the items to be distributed to the victims.
He said, the between three to four hours of uninterrupted rain, saw flood waters rising to high levels that left many with no sleeping places whiles rescuers had to be given life jackets to rescue trapped victims and salvage some properties.
Mr. Anab stated that the general officers of NADMO will be on the ground to further access the situation before coming clear on the status of the victims.
He said Regional Coordinating Council had to provide some relieve items for the victims before the bulk of the items finally arrived late Monday night for distribution to begin this morning.
