Kagadi-The Office of Prime Minister-OPM has delivered relief items to Kagadi district for distribution to flood-affected residents.
More than 4,000 people in Ndaiga Sub County were displaced from their homes because of flooding resulting from increased water levels in Lake Albert.
Some of the displaced persons are currently residing in churches, and schools while others shifted to areas that were least affected by the tragedy.
However, the Kagadi District communications Officer George Gulyetonda says, many of them were starving until the Office of the Prime Minister decided to come to their rescue.
He says OPM has delivered 17500kilograms of maize flour, 7500Kgs of beans, 100Kgs of Sugar and 500 pieces of blankets for distribution to the affected persons
Sugar is meant only for vulnerable people.
Gulyetonda says the district leaders will convene a meeting and devise means of delivering relief items to the affected persons next week.
Gulyetonda welcomed the relief food but hastened to add that the demand is overwhelming as more areas are affected by the rising water levels.
The Kagadi district woman Member of Parliament Janepher Kyomuhendo Mbabazi who presented the matter to parliament has thanked the Government for the quick response.
