The Adaklu District Assembly presented 25 bundles of roofing membranes to the victims of last Sunday’s rainstorm in Adaklu Kpogadzi, Adaklu District.
The rainstorm, which displaced about 124 people, tore open roofs of 30 buildings.
Mr. Phanuel Kadey Donkor, General Director of Adaklu District, who submitted the roofing sheets on behalf of the assembly, asked them to seek expert advice before rebuilding or renovating their buildings.
He urged people in the district to get permission from the congregation before they set up a structure.
The DCE also asked them to pay their property installments to the congregation, adding that those who did not claim or pay their home prices would face criminal prosecution in the event of a disaster.
He said he would not get any support from the congregation either.
Mr Donkor said that although 54 bundles of roofing sheets were required after an assessment of the damage, the gathering could only afford 25 bundles for financial reasons as a similar incident occurred in Adaklu Avelebe in the district.
DCE took the opportunity to reach out to people, develop the culture of maintenance and regularly strengthen their buildings.
Mr. Nicholas Amanfu, Adaklu District NADMO coordinator, said his organization will continue to raise support for them.
Togbe Adzalo Amewugah, the community professor who received the item on behalf of the victims, thanked the gathering and appealed to philanthropists and benevolent organizations to come for support.
