The items donated include coils for dragging the nets, twines for mending nets, floats and nets. The donation was due to an appeal made by the Effutu Municipal Directorate of the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO).
Mr Rolland Quainoo, Effutu Municipal NADMO Co-coordinator, who made the donation at a ceremony in Winneba, said the items were meant to relieve them from the hardships they experienced as a result of the disaster.
