About 300 people in Dixcove in the Ahanta West District of Western Region have been rendered homeless after a rainstorm hit the town on last Friday.

According to the Assembly member for Lowre Dixcove, Mr. Isaac Simons Bassaw, those rendered homeless are currently lodging with relatives and friends.

He said the Dixcove Government Hospital, the only health facility in the area, was seriously affected with its roofs being ripped off completely.

Another social facility affected by the rain storm was the Methodist basic and Junior High school buildings, which also had its roof ripped off.

He said properties worth millions of Ghana cedis were destroyed.

Mr. Bassaw said the assembly had taken records of the people and property affected and forwarded it to the regional office of the National Disaster and Management Organization (NADMO) for support.

The assemblyman appealed to non-governmental organizations and the Methodist church to come to their aid of the affected persons.

According to the regional NADMO Boss, Mr Japheth Baidoo, his outfit had received the report and would do everything humanly possible to help those affected.
