Background: A team from the Greater Accra Region Committee of Administration visited the Tettegu resettlement site near Weija, on Thursday. (13 June).
Tettegu was a village destroyed in the severe floods which hit Weija last year. During the floods the Weija dam burst. Two hundred and fifty families from the village were left homeless by the floods. The Regional Committee is rebuilding the village. At present work is in progress on ten housing units, each with two rooms and a porch.
The projects is being undertaken through communal labour by the flood victims themselves. Funds for the re-building have come from the United States Government, who donated fifteen thousands new cedis, and the Federal Nigerian Government, who have given two thousand eight hundred and sixty new cedis. Technical assistance is coming from the Department of Social Welfare and Community Development, which is directing operations.
The Regional Committee team visit was not just a sight-seeing tour. Led by Mr. M.A. Mettle, the team lent a hand to the site workers by carrying concrete and making concrete blocks.
