Member of Parliament for Dome/Kwabenya, Sarah Adwoa Safo has encouraged victims of the recent fire outbreak in the Dome Market to remain calm and refocused so they can pick up the pieces to bounce back to life.

Adwoa Safo told the fire victims that they can only look into the future with hope, urging them not to allow the calamity that has befallen to discourage them from fighting on in life to meet their respective destinies.

The Member of Parliament said this when she personally made some cash donation and some items to about ten victims who were badly affected by the recent fire outbreak at the Dome Market in Ga East Municipality of Accra. The gesture was to lighten the burden of the affected traders

Weeks ago, the Dome market which has been a subject of controversy over its reconstruction, was gutted down by fire, destroying properties worth over hundreds of thousands of Ghana Cedis.

Several items belonging market sellers including their capital base were all destroyed in the process.

Adwoa Safo who was on a working visit outside country had to cut short the visit, upon hearing the news, and on her return she hurriedly paid a visit to the scene of the disaster to ascertain for herself the impact of the fire disaster on the lives of the people.

As a measure to resuscitate some of them who were deeply affected by the inferno, they were presented with some items which include student mattresses and some unspecified amount as a starter up for them to begin their businesses again.

The Member of Parliament urged the government to adequately resource the Fire Service and other allied organizations in order for those institutions to live up their billing. She bemoaned the erratic and incessant recent fire outbreaks that that have hit most major markets and called on the various Assemblies to help stem the tide.

The affected traders, on their part, were greatful to Lawyer Adwoa Safo for the kind gesture she has shown to them in those these trialing moments.

Some of the executives who accompanied the MP to the market are the NPP Chairman for the Dome Kwabenya Constituency, Moses Fodjour and the constituency Organizer, Mr. Obeng.
