UCS Facility Management Ghana Limited, a subsidiary of the Jospong Group of Companies as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has offered free professional cleaning services to flood victims at Nanakrom near East Legon Hills in the Adentan Municipal Assembly in the Greater Accra Region.
The company took the initiative to bring relief to flood victims of Friday, September 22, rains which flooded the whole community rendering them homeless and destroying millions of properties.
The Nanakrom Community since June 3, 2016, has been experiencing perennial flooding. UCS facility management services seeing the plight of its residents and also being a borderline within the operations of UCS decided to move to the community to help them salvage the rest of their properties.
Addressing the media, the Operations Manager of UCS Facility Management Ghana Ltd, Mr. Grant Daniel Kuao said UCS believes in touching lives through professional services.
He said the company has marked over 10 homes at Nanakrom to give them professional cleaning services to restore livelihood and bring hope to the already devastated flood victims in the area.
On his part, the Senior Marketing Officer for UCS Facility Management Ghana Limited, Mr. Stephen Afful said the company has deployed a team of 10 professional cleaners to the area to help salvage the situation.
Mr. Afful said UCS has deployed the appropriate tools such as a floor scrubbing machine, wet and dry vacuum cleaner, and many others for the work.
He further noted “We are collaborating with Zoomlion to also do away with filth that emanated from the flood” he added.
Mr. Afful said the free cleaning service for Nanakrom flood victims would have cost the company GHS 50,000.00.
One of the flood victims, Mrs. Mavis Kevi said more than 10 homes in the area have lost all their properties to the flood including cars, television sets, electrical gadgets, cash, home appliances, and others worth millions of cedis.
Residents are therefore appealing to the Adentan Municipal Assembly as a matter of urgency to come to their rescue by widening the only gutter in the area to allow the free flow of floodwaters.
Mrs. Kevi on behalf of the flood victims at Nanakrom thanked the management of UCS Facility Management Ghana Limited for their timely intervention.
UCS provides a wide range of services such as Janitorial, Landscaping, and Cabin services (including water supply, cesspit emptying, mobile toilet rentals, and sales and pest control) and engages in security.
