An alumni of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), a former SRC vice presidential candidate and a former KNUST Local NUGS Academic Board Chairman, David Elikem Gadah, has led some youths in the Keta municipality in donating some items worth hundreds of cedis to the residents there.
In an initiative dubbed “one nose mask, one hand sanitizer,” a total of one thousand items, specifically, 500 nose masks and 500 small sized bottles of hand sanitizers were given to the people of Keta Municipality, particularly the market women.
In an interview with Jubilee Fm, David avered “that the purpose of this activity is to educate the public on how we could stop the spread of this virus taking into consideration wearing of the mask and also engaging ourselves in consistent washing of our hands under running water with soap or the use of the hand sanitizers.”
“This has become necessary at a time when the president of the republic is urging all of us to do what we can, to do our best in stopping the spread of the virus and ultimately gaining victory over the virus,” he stated.
He further stated that “this is to also show the little contribution myself and the youth of Keta constituency specifically Keta municipal youth can do to prevent the spread of the deadly virus.”
Some of the beneficiaries of the exercise expressed their profound gratitude to the team for their kind gesture and admonished the youths in Ghana to emulate such a worthy cause.
“This is why we work all we can to send our children to school. In times like this, we look to them to help we the old ones and so we are grateful for what these young men have done,” one woman said.
David finally thanked God and everyone for making the event a success.
“Finally, I want to say a very big thanks to God, family, friends and Jubilee radio 106.9fm for their great support.” He concluded.
