A delegation from Citi FM on Tuesday visited the Sierra Leonean High Commission in Accra to express the grief of the station over the tragedy that struck Sierra Leone last week.
The Chief Executive Officer of Citi FM, Samuel Atta-Mensah, signed the book of condolence at the High Commission and also informed the Commissioner that listeners of the station have contributed relief items to help survivors of the mudslide that claimed hundreds of lives and destroyed property worth millions of dollars.
Citi FM’s Supporting Sierra Leone Initiative aimed at gathering relief items for survivors received overwhelming support and donations from listeners of the station.
Mr. Atta-Mensah was accompanied by Citi FM’s Human Resource Manager and head of Corporate Social Responsibility, Jenifer Anane-Nsiah, Sales Manager, Omane Mensah Bonsu and Director of News Programming, Bernard Avle.
Also part of the delegation were Priscilla Mensah, Executive Assitant, and Fred Djabanor, producer of the award winning Citi Breakfast Show.
Sierra Leone is contending with a humanitarian crisis after Regent, a town near Freetown, was struck by a mudslide and flooding after torrential rainfall.
Over 400 people have been confirmed dead after the August 14 disaster and about 3,000 more have been displaced while over 600 more are said to be still missing.
The government of Ghana over the weekend donated relief items amounting to $1 million to Sierra Leone.
