The Young Women's Christian Association of Ghana (Y.W.C.A.) finds it extremely difficult to hold it tear for the lost souls and all who fell victim to the Atomic Junction gas explosion in Accra over the weekend.
The feminine group with outstanding mothering model for the girl child feels that its children are being swallowed by disaster and as parents they cannot easily remain unconcerned but sympathize with affected families and the entire nation to mourn in such difficult times.
National president of the association, Mrs. Vera Naana Appiah together with her executive members noted the time is right for Ghana to see the issue of gas explosion and all other disastrous events as bad omen that should not be allowed to devour people and property any longer. The president said, the association is sharing the pain of victims, asking the lord to give them the fortitude to withstand this moment of their lives. "As we console with them, we wish them the strength to recover with speed and also get out of the trauma quickly" she added.
Mrs. Appiah was for the School of Thoughts that filling stations, especially gas, be moved out of town to reduce the tension it pose on human life adding, the need to educate women to handle domestic gas should be in the interest of the state to reduce or do away with all round gas related injuries. She appealed with media houses to offer some space for safety education in their daily programming to help deal with the issue.
