The Member of Parliament for Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency has set up a disaster recovery fund for victims of Friday night’s fire at ‘Kiosks Estate’ near Shiashie in Accra.
The fire ravaged stores and make-shift structures, rendering hundreds, mostly squatters, homeless.
The cause of the fire is not yet known but many suspect it was as a result of a gas explosion.
Visiting the site on Saturday to commiserate with the victims, Lydia Seyram Alhassan called for public and private support for the victims.
She donated a seed money of GH¢20,000 into the recovery fund.
She also donated relief items including bags of rice and oil, mattresses, among others to the victims.
