Under the pragmatic, visionary and progressive leadership by Hon. Dr. Sylvia Olayinka Blyden of the Ministry of Social Welfare, Gender & Children's Affairs (MSWGCA), families affected by the recent flooding in Kono, have benefited from an assortment of household items to help cushion the calamity they suffered. Over one dozen huge compounds containing scores of citizens living in numerous affected households, have yesterday August 4th 2016, joyfully collected relief items.


Speaking at the occasion, Mr. Joseph Kai, the Head of MSWGCA in Kono, explained that the new minister Dr. Blyden, has now made it mandatory for every one of the government's District Social Services Officers around the country, to be regularly monitoring social issues in their districts, following which they should step up with securing and distributing emergency assistance to affected citizens.


 

The recent flooding in Kono happened when embankment of a key road, caused massive flooding that not only temporarily diverted vehicular traffic but also flooded many houses.

 

According to Mr. Kai, the items distributed are from support provided by the Ministry's newly re-launched and strengthened Disaster Management Preparedness program as developed with the assistance of UNICEF.

 

 

The distribution of the items themselves occurred at the Ministry's offices in Koidu City whilst the vote of thanks was given by suckling mother Sarah Kabba, one of the victims of the flooding.
