Australia provides flood relief support to victims in Accra.


Accra, 25 June 2015 - The Australian High Commission Ghana has joined the Salvation Army in response to the 3 June floods that left thousands in need of relief, with a series of donations and food distribution in Accra.
The dramatic events that took the lives of nearly 200 people in the capital city of Accra, have affected many Ghanaians who are now rebuilding their lives in the aftermath of the flooding.
High Commission staff travelled with Salvation Army members, who have been working in collaboration with Ghana’s National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO), to sites affected by the flooding in the area of Nima in Accra, and distributed essential food items to people affected there.
Australia offered 10,000 GHS for flood relief efforts in the immediate aftermath of the floods but has now increased that figure to 23,177.56 GHS (approximately 7,000 AUD). “Our hearts go out to all those affected by these terrible events” Australian High Commissioner Joanna Adamson said.
