Vice-President Paa Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur has donated 200 bags of cement and 20 packets of roofing sheets to Debibi community in the Tain District.
Besides the items valued at about GHC20, 000.00, Vice President Amissah Arthur also gave the traditional authority GHC5, 000.00.
The items will enable victims of a recent rain disaster that collapsed buildings and ripped some houses of their roofs in the community to repair, rebuild and re-roof their houses.

Ogyeaman Ampem Kwabena Nangor II, Chief of the town expressed appreciation, saying “We are so surprised and elated at the Vice-President’s gesture because we never expected such a quick response and assistance to the community after the disaster”.
