AVS revisits, donates items to families of accident victims

Last week, the Accident Victims Support (AVS) organisation led by founder, Reverend Cyril Benedict Crabbe revisited families of six children who died in a car accident last year in Ankaase, Oti Region. 


Rev Crabbe donated hampers, fabric, cash and flip-flops, while sharing in the grieve of the families in the aftermath of the incident. The hampers included food items to alleviate some of the burdens the families faced.

He also lectured the community on proper pedestrian road usage such as walking while facing on-coming vehicles and looking both ways before crossing.

According to one of the parents who lost three children, Mr James Wassah, the trauma rendered him incapable of effectively returning to his job as a farmer.

“Although it had been over a year, the nightmares have not stopped. My wife and my other child who survived the accident have not been the same since. We thank the AVS team for remembering and celebrating Christmas with us. These items will go a long way to help us”, he added.

Mr Wassah received three out of the six hampers, each one to represent a child he lost. The other beneficiaries were Mr Giudo, who lost two children and Mr Joseph Njanlin who lost one.

According to the Assembly Man of the community, Philip Donkor, the accident was caused by a moving vehicle.

“The driver who was driving on top speed crashed and killed six out of the seven children while they were walking along the sidewalks of the road on their way back from school”, he stated.

He added that the incident, left the community in shock and mourning resulting in children being scared to step out or go back to school. 

Rev Crabbe, who is the founder of Chazak Chapel International expressed his commitment to standing by the affected families and the community, emphasising the importance of kindness.

He thanked his sponsors including; Serene Insurance, Ghana Insurers Association, Enterprise Insurance, The Full Gospel Business Men Fellowship, the National Road Safety Authority, Drivers and Vehicle Licensing Authority, media partners, among others.

The Chief of the Community and grandfather of four of the dead children, Mr Wassah praised the initiative, highlighting the positive impact it has had on his people.

The community returned the favour by gifting tubers of yams and a live goat to the AVS team.
