    Victims of Akosombo Dam spillage receive support from VRA, NADMO

    The Volta River Authority (VRA), in partnership with the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO), has provided essential relief supplies to communities affected by the water spillage from the Akosombo and Kpong Dam.

    These relief items consist of mattresses, blankets, various food supplies, clothing, and toiletries. They are intended to alleviate the hardships faced by the communities impacted by the increased spill rate.

    In a news release sent to the Ghana News Agency in Accra, it was mentioned that the VRA is dedicated to easing the difficulties of these affected communities while closely monitoring the spill’s impact on areas in the lower Volta basin.

    This act of delivering relief supplies took place on Wednesday, October 11, 2023. The items were received on behalf of the affected communities by Mr. Eric Nana Agyemang Prempeh, the Director General of NADMO.

    The controlled spillage, initiated by the VRA on Friday, September 15, 2023, was prompted by a consistent rise in the inflow pattern and water levels in the Akosombo reservoir.

    “In line with its emergency preparedness plan and standard operating procedures, the Authority notified its stakeholders, including the downstream communities”, the VRA said.

    The Authority reiterated that it would continue to work with NADMO and other stakeholders to monitor the situation and provide regular updates to the public.
