Some final year students from Cape Coast’s Mfantsipim School donated assorted items to Accra’s Dzorwulu Special School.
The donation was made by the General Arts One class, with the support of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Director-General and Reverend Daniel Ogbarmey Tetteh, General Overseer of the New Creation Chapel International.
The products, which included food and toiletries, were intended to support the school’s smooth running and the facility’s children’s treatment.
Handing over the items on behalf of the group, a representative of the final year students, Mr. Collins Fiifi Annowi, said the donation was to bring joy to the children during the festive season.
“We want the children of this special school to take part in this festive celebration and know that people care about their upkeep,” he said.
Another student, Mr. Daniel Ogbarmey Tetteh Jnr, said they were elated to be part of such a worthy cause.
The Deputy Head of the special school, Mr. Frederick Tetteh, expressed gratitude to the Mfantsipim students for the kind gesture as she received the items on behalf of his school.
“Considering what the final year students have done today, it goes to say that these young men are considerate of persons with disability in the society,” he said.
Mr. Tetteh appealed to churches, non-governmental organizations and philanthropists to come to the school’s assistance, stressing that “the government has a lot of responsibilities and is unable to do everything.”
Mr Annowi also urged other senior high school students to make an effort in the coming year to donate to such special schools.
“In other schools, I would like to encourage other students to make an effort to support those in need,” he said.
