Edem Said: “When I saw the videos online, I knew that my people were in trouble but after my visit I realized that my people are in danger”.

 

He continued by saying:“I could not control my emotions when I saw how homes have been destroyed, people’s businesses wiped out entirely and the most painful part was the lack of electricity because the electrical wires were in the water.”
