The Regional Maritime University has presented a cheque for GH¢10, 000 to Martha Hassan, a student of the Asesewa Senior High School ,who was a victim of the June 3 flood and fire disasters in Accra.
The donation, which was part of the university’s social responsibility, was aimed at helping the second-year student to meet her medical and educational needs.
Prof. Elvis Nyarko, Vice Chancellor of RMU, presenting the cheque, said the amount was generated from a fund-raising effort by the university to help students who were victims of the disaster.
According to him, 17-year-old Martha was selected from the 37 Military Hospital based on a criteria set by his outfit for beneficiaries of the support.
“Martha has returned to school after she was released from the hospital, but she obviously needs a lot of support to reach her goals in life,” he stated.
