Dam Spillage: Teacher offers free classes for affectedpupils at Mepe

Mr Adotey Collins Yeboah, a 24-year-old pupil teacher at Open Heaven Grace Academy at Mepe in the Central Tongu District of the Volta Region is undertaking free tuition for some students.

The move, according to the JHS Three Mathematics Teacher, was to maintain the intellect and mental
state of the students, who were hard-hit by the floods

Mr Adotey, in an engagement with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) on Wednesday, October 18 at the St
Kizito Senior High School, a centre earmarked to host some affected victims in the area, said he equally
lost all valuables to the floods.

He said the disturbing situation had compelled him to initiate measures to engage the affected students,
who are camping at the base.

“I am teaching them Mathematics for now because we have nowhere to go. I have lost virtually everything
in the floods because of the Akosombo Dam spillage.”

Mr Ahorsu Borlor Amos, the Assembly member for Mepe, told the GNA the affected residents, who were
residing at the various safe havens needed more support “to make living a bit bearable for them.”
He lamented the slow pace of assistance from donors and other well wishes.

Mr Ahorsu, however, expressed optimism that more philanthropic activities would be extended to the area soon.
Some affected victims, in an interaction with the GNA, complained of inadequate foodstuffs, water,
proper place of convenience and other things.

All affected schools and some churches, including the New Covenant Apostolic Church in the area, have
been submerged since the flood disaster, which they said had brought severe hardship to them.

Several individuals, organisations and government officials including President Nana Addo Dankwa
Akufo-Addo, have since visited the affected areas to assess the situation.
