Sahara Group, a leading privately owned oil, Gas, Power, and Infrastructure conglomerate has provided aid and support to the victims of the June 3rd flood and fire disaster in Accra.
The support came in the form of medical supplies, bedding materials, soaps and detergents, food items as well as an undisclosed amount of money to help offset the medical bills of the injured and ameliorate their suffering.
The items have been donated to Joy FM to spearhead the distribution to the affected people.
In one of the worst disasters to hit the nation, the night of June 3rd 2015 saw large parts of Accra flooded and massive explosion at a filling station at the Kwame Nkrumah circle leading to the death of over 100 lives.
Speaking on the donation, TosinEtomi Country Manager of Sahara Group in Ghana revealed that Sahara as a key stakeholder in the Ghanaian economy was touched by the plight of the victims of the disaster and moved to provide some measure of support for the affected.
“Sahara shares the pain of every Ghanaians affected by this disaster and we pray for speedy recovery for those in the hospital. It is a privilege for Sahara to stand in solidarity with Ghana at this time” he added.
According to him, Sahara hopes the cash donation, which forms part of the support, would defray some of the huge cost of treatment and rehabilitation of victims with varying degrees of injuries.
Mr.Etome further commiserated with the families of those who lost their lives in the disaster. “We pray for the repose of the souls of the departed and also pray that the well- being of the grieving families”.
Over 10 members of staff from Sahara Group have volunteered to be on the ground to facilitate the distribution of the relief items to the victims in collaboration with Joy FM.
The volunteering staff will also take part in counseling sessions and cleaning the environment in the affected areas.
