Nawuni Flood Victims Admit to Evacuate to New Settlement
Affected flood victims at Nawuni in the Kumbungu district have admitted that they are ever ready to evacuate from their current settlement to higher grounds away from the banks of water bodies after the community was hit hard by flood following spillage of the Bagre Dam due to torrential rain falls which has left many displaced and homeless.
They made this pronouncement when National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) in Northern region in collaboration with World Vision, United Nations (UN), World Food Programme (WFP), Red Cross Society (RCS) among others visited the communities to do 'need assessment' on the victims.
The flood waters have destroyed properties forcing many to relocate to a school structure as their temporal habitat.
Admitting to the calls that they will now evacuate from the community due to perennial flooding situation, the assembly member for the area called for support from government, NGOs, Philanthropists and the general public to assist them in their resettlement process
Addressing the Media, the Northern regional Director for NADMO Alhaj Abdallah Abdul Mumin indicated that plans are far advanced to facilitate the resettlement of the residents upstream.
