Why are the government ignoring the request and what can resident in such communities do to tackle this inhumane treatment?.
Wa West District which is in the Upper West Region of Ghana has been affected by heavy rainfall. This has resulted in at least 19 communities having difficult access the district.
The rain is causing a big problem for resident as they are unable to access various communities. It has also resulted in Kolle River overflowing its banks. While road from Dabo to Dorimon and subsequently to Wa has been rendered inaccessible by the torrential rains.
Meanwhile, the situation is making resident have problem accessing neighbouring towns for healthcare and other services. Motorist are finding it hard as they have to meet people to assist them carry their motorcycles while they walk on foot.
Barnabas Gaazienye who is an Assembly Member for the area said We have only one Community Health Planning System (CHPS) compound in the whole electoral area. This becomes difficult for the communities across the river to cross over for healthcare according to Gaazienye.
WHY IS THE GOVERNMENT NOT LOOKING AT THIS PROBLEM?
The communities are suffering that is a fact from the picture above. But do the government have plans to tackle such challenges. We know that citizens are vital for any nation, so the government needs to look into it. According to Gaazienye, Last week a sick person was carried shoulder high across the water to seek healthcare at Wa.
In such condition, You will expect lives to be lost due to the nature of the environment. These are problem the government needs to focus on as it involves people from a low status or background. Funds and proper maintenance should be a priority in area such as this ones. Gaazienye also mention that letter has been written to various authorities to help solve this problem over the years but no response.
So why are the government ignoring the request and what can resident in such communities do to tackle this inhumane treatment?.
