By on

The Government of Ghana will today, Friday, 18 August 2017 airlift relief items worth $1million to Sierra Leone in support of that country’s recovery process following a mudslide disaster that has left over 400 dead and about 600 missing in the capital, Freetown.

The items will comprise food, medicines, clothing and logistics for temporary shelter, a statement signed by the Minister of Information Mustapha Hamid said.

The statement disclosed that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Tuesday, 15 August assured his counterpart President Ernest Bai Koroma of Sierra Leone of Ghana’s support in a telephone conversation hours after the incident.

Also, Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia will visit Sierra Leone on Saturday 19 August 2017 to express the commiseration of the Ghanaian people to the government and people of Sierra Leone.
