Each school will also be given free hand sanitizers, dustbins, brooms, soaps, wiping towels, boxes of drinking water and a certificate of participation.
Last December, the 20 year old student of the University of Ghana desire to put smiles on the faces the Ghanaian child, pressed her to organise a Christmas party for the sick children at the Korle Bu hospital who couldn’t join their friends at home to celebrate the festive season.
Recalling the challenges she faced in organizing the sanitation hand wash project to David Pablo of Cypress Ghana, Miss Eirene hinted that, “some companies turned down my sponsorship letter and for now I’m depending on the money my crew and I raised from a three day fund raiser at three different shopping malls in Accra; Accra Mall, Westhills, and Nungua – Junction shopping Mall”
She therefore made a passionate appeal to the government, private companies, and the general public to come and support her dreams to prevent the spread of diseases especially cholera in the country.
