Amid the recent flood crisis caused by the spillage of the Akosombo Dam in the Central Tongu District of the Volta Region, Mr. Adotey Collins Yeboah, a 24-year-old pupil teacher at Open Heaven Grace Academy in Mepe, has stepped forward to offer free tuition to affected students.
As the devastating floods significantly disrupted the lives and education of these students, especially those in the Junior High School Three Mathematics class, Mr. Adotey saw the need to support and maintain their intellectual development during this challenging period.
His gesture reflects resilience in the face of personal loss, as he too fell victim to the floods and lost most of his belongings.
While he initially focuses on teaching Mathematics, Mr. Adotey aspires to expand his tutoring to reach even more students currently residing at these centers.
Mr. Ahorsu Borlor Amos, the Assembly member for Mepe, emphasized the necessity for additional support in light of the ongoing hardships faced by those residing in these safe havens.
He lamented the slow response from donors and well-wishers but remained optimistic that more philanthropic actions would soon come to the area.
The affected victims, who have been confronting challenges such as insufficient foodstuffs, clean water, suitable sanitation facilities, and other necessities, eagerly anticipate further assistance and relief.
The flood disaster submerged numerous schools and places of worship, compounding the adversity faced by the affected communities.
Various individuals, organizations, and government officials, including President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, have visited the afflicted regions to assess the situation and offer their support.
