Zongo Youth Leader Alhaji Edmond Joins Hands With Amb. Alhaji Salamu Amadu, Marhaba FM To Support Akosombo Spillage Victims
In the aftermath of the devastating Akosombo spillage, a heartwarming tale of unity and compassion has emerged as the Zongo Communities in the Volta Region received critical support from various generous individuals and organizations.
At the forefront of this noble initiative were Ambassador Alhaji Salamu Amadu, the esteemed President and Founder of the Afro-Arab Group of Companies, and Alhaji Baba Sharif, the dedicated CEO of the award-winning Hausa radio station, Marhaba FM, based in Accra. Their commitment to making a difference ignited a spark of kindness that would change lives.
They were joined by Alhaji Papa Angola, Sariki Baba Adini in the Ashanti Region, Alhaji Edmond Jalil, Paka Doma, and Gado Spark, who selflessly contributed to the cause. Together, these compassionate individuals donated a range of essential relief items, including bags of rice, cooking oil, packs of spaghetti, and tins of canned beef. Additionally, they extended their support to provide second-hand clothing, recognizing the immediate needs of the affected communities in the North Tongu Municipality.
The roots of this humanitarian mission trace back to Alhaji Baaba Sherif, who, inspired by the dedication of Ambassador Alhaji Salamu and Alhaji Papa Angola, took the initiative to invite them to discuss how the Zongo Communities affected by the Akosombo Spillage could be assisted. The ensuing collaboration was a testament to the power of unity and empathy, demonstrating how influential individuals can unite for a noble cause, despite challenges.
The Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Mr. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, expressed his deep gratitude for the compassionate actions of Ambassador Alhaji Salamu, Alhaji Baba Sharif, Alhaji Papa Angola, Sariki Baba Adini, Alhaji Edmond Jalil, Paka Doma, and Gado Spark. He specifically appreciated their aid to the Zongo communities, which bore the brunt of the Akosombo Dam spillage. Mr. Ablakwa emphasized the urgency of the relief efforts, revealing that around 1,200 households had been affected.
Ambassador Alhaji Salamu Amadu, a prominent figure leading this philanthropic endeavor, committed to extending the “1Child-1NHIS Card” initiative to the children in the affected areas.
He also pledged to distribute thousands of customized exercise books to these young minds, to strengthen their educational journey and foster their confidence.
