The President of the Student’ Representative Council (SRC), Richard Opoku (Omega) said the donation forms part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to support the underprivileged in the society.
He noted that as a student body whose major concern is about welfare, it was essential for them to visit the kids especially in a time we are celebrating the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
He underscored that Jesus Christ exhibited His unalloyed love for mankind through his death, and as Christians or believers, it is always prudent to acknowledge such a special day with such a benevolent effort.

Mr. Victor Avorgbedor used the opportunity to call other corporate organisations and philanthropists to emulate what the students have done as part of their support to the less privileged.
