Ghana: Vodafone Foundation assists dam spillage victims in Mepe and Asuogyaman

The Vodafone Ghana Foundation has provided assistance to those affected by the Akosombo Dam spillage in order to alleviate the suffering of the displaced individuals.

Vodafone Ghana, along with its foundation and dedicated employee volunteers, conducted a visit to the areas impacted by the Akosombo Dam spillage, specifically Mepe in the Volta Region and Asuogyaman in the Eastern Region. During this visit, they generously provided relief items such as camp tents, treated mosquito nets, student mattresses, essential food supplies, and access to clean water.

Furthermore, Vodafone Ghana extended a compassionate gesture by making Vodafone-to-Vodafone calls in the affected areas exempt from charges, ensuring zero-rated calls.

This initiative was designed to alleviate the challenges experienced by those impacted by the disaster and demonstrates Vodafone Ghana’s dedication to nurturing significant connections and actively participating in the well-being of the communities in which it serves.

Foundation, Sustainability and External Communications Manager at Vodafone Ghana,  Rita Agyeiwaa Rockson said: “We empathise with the victims of this unfortunate incident. As a leading business in Ghana, it is important that we show our support in such critical times of need.

“In addition to the relief items donated by the foundation, Vodafone Ghana employees donated items and money through an employee Vodafone Cash account to support the victims. I am especially proud of our employees for volunteering their time to engage and encourage the victims during this challenging time.”

Member for the North Tongu Constituency, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa expressed his admiration for Vodafone Ghana’s thoughtful intervention, saying: “I am absolutely impressed that Vodafone Ghana took the time to visit the displaced camps and distribute a wealth of essential goods to my constituents”.

Vodafone Ghana further extended its assistance to individuals affected in Asuogyaman. Upon receiving the donated items, Thomas Nyarko Ampem, a Member of Parliament representing the Asuogyaman Constituency, expressed gratitude to Vodafone Ghana for being the second corporate organization to visit and support the flood victims in Asuogyaman.

“We know that Asuogyaman is not the epicentre of the incident; however, there are many affected families along the Volta River who also need help. I commend Vodafone Ghana’s commitment to the communities in which it operates, and I urge other corporate organisations to follow Vodafone’s example and reach out to the people of Asuogyaman in their time of need.”
