PHOTOGRAPHS OF JUNE 3 MEMORIAL SERVICE

IMG_3222manchieA memorial service has been held at the Rev. Ernest Memorial Methodist Church at Adabraka in Accra, for victims of the June 3, 2015 flood and fire disaster. President John Dramani Mahama and other dignitaries were present at the service.

Victims of the disaster were also there in their numbers.  Among them was Esther and her family who were there in memory of their sister Emefa Agbemati. She was a trained midwife.

According to Esther she advised her sister against going to work that evening until the rain subsided. Emefa insisted that she had to go because she had delivered some women and had to be there to take care of the babies.

When she did not return from work her family started to look for her only to find her body at the 37 Military Hospital among the dead.

The service was solemn as some survivors recalled the dreadful moment and bemoaned their loss.

President Mahama laid a wreath on behalf of the people of Ghana. Other wreaths were laid on behalf of Members of Parliament, victims and other groups.
