In a significant humanitarian effort, the National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) has emerged as a crucial support system for students affected by floods in the North and Central Tongu districts. With a mandate dedicated to prioritizing the welfare of over 12.5 million Ghanaian students, NUGS initiated a mission to provide essential support and aid to those facing the challenges posed by recent floods.
Late last night, around 10 PM, the President of NUGS, accompanied by National Officers and committed Volunteer Teachers from various institutions associated with NUGS, arrived at Adidome in the North Tongu District. Their purpose was to join the initial team of volunteers already on the ground, operating in both the Central and North Tongu Districts.
The primary objective of this initiative is to sustain NUGS’s ongoing volunteer teaching project. The goal is to assist young students displaced by the floods in catching up with the curriculum, ensuring the continuity of their academic pursuits. Alongside educational support, the leadership of NUGS has mobilized relief items, including books, clothes, food, drinks, and other stationary supplies.
In these challenging times, NUGS is dedicated to providing affected students with the necessary help and resources to navigate through the disruptions caused by the floods. The President of NUGS emphasizes the collective impact achievable through unity, stating, “Together, we can make a difference and bring hope to those affected.”
Gratitude is expressed for the support received thus far, extending appreciation to all individuals and organizations that have contributed to their efforts, with special acknowledgment to the 3 Foundation. However, the President emphasizes the ongoing need for support, urging more assistance as NUGS continues its crucial mission to uplift and aid flood-affected students in Ghana. The spirit of compassion in action is evident as NUGS strives to make a positive impact and instill hope in the lives of those grappling with the aftermath of the floods.
