Speaking on the initiative, Goldcoast’s founder, Moses Oruaze Dickson, said: “We are deeply touched by what the flood waters have done to people across the country and particularly, the Niger-Delta.
“We recognize that our assistance will not solve all their problems, but it can help them cope with the impact of the tragedy at this time.
“All these would not have been possible without the support of volunteers and donors who have contributed to this programme. All lives matter, and it is our responsibility to always put humanity first in all our endeavours.”
