On January 20, 2022, a truck carrying explosives collided with a motorist causing a catastrophic explosion killing at least 17, and affecting hundreds more on the Tarkwa-Bogoso-Ayamfuri road in Western Ghana. The nearby town, Apiate, mostly composed of farmers and miners and was destroyed, leaving over 350 residents displaced and in need of extensive medical support, housing, and other necessities.
You can make a difference by helping those most affected by this tragedy.
Thanks in advance for your support!
