The relief materials donated to alleviate the suffering of the victims include 300 bags of cement, 30 bundles of roofing sheets, rubber mats, plastic buckets and kettles.

“I visited to personally commiserate with you in your most trying times. My donation is not in any way a compensation for your huge losses because only God is capable of compensating you,” he said.
