eTranzact Ghana Limited, Ghana’s leading provider of technology and payment services, has donated GH¢10,000 to support the victims of the Akosombo Dam spillage through the Citi FM’s #Relief4LowerVolta campaign.
On Monday, October 16, 2023, the management of Citi FM/Citi TV, a prominent radio and television station in Accra, launched the #Relief4LowerVolta campaign to collect relief items for the affected victims.
A number of communities in South Tongu, Central Tongu and North Tongu areas have experienced severe flooding following the spillage of the Akosombo and Kpong dams by the Volta River Authority (VRA).
So far, a number of homes have been submerged by the flooding waters with several thousands of people displaced.
The victims of the flood have called on the public and corporate organisations to come to their aid.
The Chief Executive Officer of eTranzact Ghana Ltd, Mr. John Apea and the Communications Manager, Ms. Yvonne Effe Faska, presented the money to the host of the Citi Breakfast show, Bernard Avle, who is also the station’s manager and a key member of the FM’s #Relief4LowerVolta campaign on Monday, October 23, 2023.
Mr. Appiah said eTranzact Ghana Ltd as a human-centered organisation that provides timely financial solutions was deeply touched by the plight of the victims.
He said the company was not only donating money to support the Citi FM’s initiative but would also provide technical support to aid the collection of money for the victims electronically.
“We are here to do our little bit to support your initiative,” Mr. Apea remarked, commending Citi FM for the timely introduction of the campaign, saying “You are doing a very good job.”
He also pledged the readiness of eTranzact Ghana Ltd to join the Citi team on their next trip to the affected communities.
For her part, Ms. Faska said the extent of damage of the dam spillage needed all corporate organisations to extend helping hand to the people in the affected communities.
She said the donation was also in line with the company’s corporate social responsibility principle to help people in dire need, such as those affected by the Akosombo Dam spillage.
