Affected victims of the rainstorm at Birim Central Municipality have received some relief items from government through National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO).

The items included soaps, mosquitos’ nets, blankets, roofing sheets, mattresses, plastic cups, rubber buckets among others.

Before the presentation of items, Mr Eric Nana Agyemang Prempeh, the Director General of NADMO urged the Traditional Authorities not to relent on their laurels but rather collaborate with the Assembly to demolish all structures which are in the verge of collapse to prevent loss of lives and properties of people.

According to him, government under the leadership of Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo is working persistently in combating climate change issues confronting the country.

He however, called on citizens irrespective of their political affiliations, religions, color, and ethnicity among others to support government to deal the situation.

He informed those who engage in illegal chain saw operations and galamsey activities in the country’s reserved forest to put an end to it since their operations deplete the forest.

This he said would help the Central government saves money to embark on other developmental projects in the Municipality.

He indicated that government is continuing to mobilize the relief items to ensure every victim is given the needed support and urged those who may not get their share of the relief items to keep calm and in the nick of time, government would provide them with their items.
