Mr Sylvester Mensah, former Chief Executive Officer of the National Health Insurance Scheme has donated assorted items to alleviate the suffering of tidal waves victims along Volta’s coast.

The items including 10 packs of noodles, 52 bags of 5kg rice, 10 packs of canned fish, 20 boxes of tomato paste, 10 cartons of cooking oil and 50 bags of sachet water were donated with the support of his cousin, Mr Emmanuel Kojo Jones Mensah.

Presenting the items at the forecourt of the Keta Municipal Assembly on Tuesday, the 2019 aspirant for the Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress said they were donating the relief items as natives of the affected persons.

Mr Mensah said he hoped their widow’s might would help provide a little more comfort to the displaced in all three coastal districts indicating that they might return with more support.

Mr Emmanuel Mensah on his part said he was moved to join hands with his cousin for the donation as a result of words he heard from a distraught woman which said, “anytime I hear of waves, my heart beats” which he said conveyed the extent of the devastation of the sea on the people, to him.

He said the “token” was to show their concern and care for the people suffering the impact of an act of nature.

Mr Emmanuel Gemegah, Municipal Chief Executive for Keta who received the donation on behalf of his two other colleagues from Ketu South and Anloga District thanked the donors for their thoughtfulness.

He prayed to God to replenish their stock so they could come back another time to support the victims and help rebuild our motherland.
