On Friday, January 21, 2022, a truck carrying explosives to a gold mine crashed with a motorcycle near the town of Bogoso causing a huge explosion.
The explosion ripped apart the nearby village of Apiatse as many houses were completely flattened, leaving at least 380 people without shelter.
The impact of the explosion has left a crater on the major highway, forcing the police to divert traffic.
The victims are currently trying to rebuild as they put themselves together.
