Belgian TV star Shallie Abbiusi donates to Mepe Flood victims for the second time in two weeks
Ghana-based Belgian on-air personality, Shallie Abbiusi, has continued her unwavering support for the people of Mepe with a second visit to the displaced camps in less than two weeks.
The TV reality star, responding to an invitation from North Tongu MP Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, joined businessman Freedom Jacob Ceasar in a donation drive for flood victims. Mr. Ceasar donated 'freedom tents' to provide shelter for the numerous displaced individuals.
Expressing her emotions regarding the devastating impact of the floods, Shallie stated, "This flood situation gets me emotional whenever I see its devastating effects. I will support in any way I can, even as authorities are working tirelessly to restore the affected communities back to normal."
Shallie's recent visit closely follows her tour of two out of the 21 camps in the town just two weeks prior.
These camps, currently situated in schools due to the disruptive floods affecting education, prompted Shallie, assisted by MP Ablakwa, to deliver essential relief items, including clothing and sanitary pads for women, providing immediate assistance to the vulnerable.
With Mepe still facing a critical situation, Shallie has taken it upon herself to offer crucial aid to the flood victims. Her efforts aim to raise awareness about the ongoing challenges faced by the community and inspire others to extend a helping hand.
Beyond providing assistance to those in need, Shallie's mission is to inspire collective action and garner support for the affected communities.
As of October 17, authorities reported that hundreds of thousands of people have been displaced by the flooding, particularly in the Volta Region.
The South, Central, and North Tongu districts in the Volta Region are among the worst affected areas following the spillage of the Akosombo and Kpong dams by the Volta River Authority due to a "consistent rise in the inflow pattern and water level of the Akosombo dam."
