ZL supports affected communities of Akosombo dam spillage

Zoomlion Ghana Limited has undertaken a massive disinfection exercise of communities affected by the Akosombo dam spillage.

Following the spillage of excess water from the Akosombo dam, parts of communities such as Mepe, Battor, Mafi, Adidiome among others have been flooded with calls for immediate public health management as the debris of the flood may cause health issues among community members.

To this effect, Zoomlion Ghana Limited as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has disinfected some of these communities to eliminate some diseases causing organisms.

The Managing Director of Vectorpes, a member of the Jospong Group of Companies, Rev. Dr. Ebenezer Kwame Addai who led the team to undertake the exercise indicated that “Zoomlion and the Jospong Group have corporate social responsibility as one of its core mandates, and that is the reason why at any point in time when some sections of Ghanaians are in a bad state, the company falls in to stand with the people”.

He cited the company’s proactiveness during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Appiate mining chemical explosion and many others being some of the projects the company undertook to minimize the health hazards posed to community members.

Dr. Addai added that on Monday 23rd October 2023, Zoomlion Ghana Limited led by its executives and management presented a number of relief items worth over GH¢500,000 cedis to victims of the spillage.

  1. I live at Kotobabi, Accra. The area near the Trotro station and under the high tension, specifically the ASHALADZA street, residents have not had their waste collected for the past 6 weeks. I have reported several times over the last fortnight. I am promised collection but promises were never fulfilled. The latest was yesterday 25/12/2023. I will be forced to seek legal advice because the waste is being infested with maggots and breeding rodents.
