Heavy rains for eight continuous days have caused havoc in the Upper East Region in Ghana, resulting in loss of life, injured and displaced persons. At least 20 people have lost their lives and 19 are reported injured.
More than 1,550 houses have also been destroyed by the floods across the 15 most affected districts of the region.
The Ghana National Disaster Management Organization (NADM)) is currently coordinating the response.
The flood-affected communities find themselves in a desperate situation, with many unmet vital humanitarian needs such as access to Shelter, WASH, Early recovery/livelihoods, food security, Protection and Psychosocial support.
The ACT Ghana forum is planning to submit a funding proposal to contribute towards providing unmet needs of affected persons.
