Feeling Rebloggy
"Four days of heavy and steady rain has left at least 10 people dead in the south of Ghana. The streets of Accra have been left under water after the torrential downpours caused widespread flooding earlier this week.
The nation's capital was hit bit 185mm (7.3 inches) of rain on Sunday, which is more than they would expect for the entire month of June. This is the wettest month of the year with an average rainfall of 178mm."

This is rainy season, which isn't expected to end until the end of July. Prior to all this rain, dry winds had been disastrous for Ghana's cocoa crop. So Ghana is going to need help again

I haven't found a reliable charity site yet. But I have found something called "Charity Navigator" Maybe you can find an organization through which to give here:

I've also done a little reading, very little, and found out that flooding in Accra is becoming a fairly regular event. Of course, record rainfall is the problem this year. But the author of the article below thinks many of the pasts floods have been due to poor infrastructure and planning -- which is usually down to money in reality, maybe?

Ghana may need your help long term. But read more and decide for yourself.
