The President of the National Union of Ghanaian Students “NUGS”-Ghana President Isaac Jay Hyde has addressed its members with a Facebook post on distribution of the COVID-19-NUGS intervention ” food & goods bank”
ADDRESS BY NUGS PRESIDENT, LEADER ISAAC JAY HYDE, ON THE DISTRIBUTION OF THE COVID19-NUGS INTERVENTION ” FOOD & GOODS BANK” ON 30TH MARCH 2020.
*Distribution of limited recharge cards to students for online lectures effective today, Monday, 30th March, 2020. Universities who have made provisions for their students are exempts; Whereas Distribution of Food items to begin Thursday, 2nd April , 2020:*
Thank you and good afternoon to the media and colleagues who we may be reaching across the nation, I’ll begin with the point.
As part of ways to reduce the possible drastic implications of the partial lockdown announced by President Akufo-Addo yesterday, the student movement resolved in its National Executive Council ( NEC ) to step in for students and households who may be vulnerable on distance learning and what to eat within this two weeks period.
Ladies and Gentlemen, we have come through with 2 ways, and effective Monday 30th March, here is the roadmap that the newly created Covid19-NUGS Task Force will follow in carrying out this intervention :
*1. Giving away of LIMITED recharge call cards to students to serve as data for online lectures with exempt of Universities who have made provisions for their students:*
Following directives by the president to close down schools, in view of containing the spread of covid19, universities are required to enroll distance learning where students are required to go online for their lecturers.
NUGS have however taken notice of some challenges posed by digital divide since these two weeks of operation of this system. Many students of some Universities have complained of data, and should this continue , the purpose for the e-learning directive ie connecting everyone for academic purposes, will be defeated.
In our little way, NUGS responds to this general challenge especially in the face of the lockdown.
*As part of the Covid 19-NUGS intervention, we shall be giving out LIMITED recharge cards to affected areas EFFECTIVE TODAY, MONDAY, 30TH MARCH 2020.*
Students in areas under lockdown and *those whose universities HAVEN’T made provisions for online data should* WhatsApp the ff number(s) to ask for credit for data for online lectures.
*Steps to access and exemptions:*
a. *WhatsApp this number to make your credit request – 023 923 4125*
b. Students will be required to show online lecture schedules as well as student ID, before credits are issued out.
c.Also NUGS has data on some universities who have given their students some bundles for such purposes, hence only students outside such brackets of universities, will be prioritized.
b. Please be reminded the cards are LIMITED.
Once again, we advise colleague students to eschew any form of corruption in accessing this humanitarian gesture.
*2. The creation and Distribution of a Food & Goods Bank begins on Thurday, 2nd April, 2020*
As of today, various organizations are still aiding the Union to stock the 4 storage houses ( 1 physical and 3 virtual ) in areas to be affected by the lockdown.
The office of NUGS in Accra will serve students and households in Accra, Kasoa and Tema. On the other hand, there’re 3 mini stations in Kuamsi to attend to our brothers and sisters in these environs.
Consequently, students in these cities will be required to access this facility by calling from *THURSDAY 3rd APRIL, 2020*. You will be required to follow simple laid down process to access any food items subject to their availability in the food and goods banks.
*As emphasized above, the exercise will begin from Thursday 2nd April after NUGS finalizes its current talks with various designated ministries and is seeking more guided partnership.* *By Thursday also, considerable orders would have been reached, and students may have exhausted what may be available home at the onset of the lockdown. Services will run from 12pm to 5pm each day from Thursday but these operational times will be subject to security advise by designated minsitry.*
*Steps to access:*
Numbers to call will be announced subsequently when delivery is to begin.
Once again, students are advised to be truthful to having germane conditions for which they should be helped.
Distinguished Media, Ladies and Gentlemen, the Union wishes to use this opportunity to seek for more support to sustain this drive even beyond the 2 weeks lockdown if the situation doesnt improve. The conditions surrounding covid19 pandemic have become so volatile and unpredictable that we as student movement ought to prepare for the worst. We therefore appeal to citizens, organizations and philanthropists to come through to support us on this intervention. As I said in media encounters earlier, we discourage cash donations. Hence , donors should contact the *Campaign Coordinator Nana Akua Afriyie Busia on 0501148730* to access a shortcode to shop into the Food & Goods Bank. We humbly count on your support for our students in these times!
We use your medium again to appeal to our colleagues to go by the safety steps of washing hands with soap regularly and under running water, avoiding close contacts with people in these days, among others.
We at NUGS are of the firm belief that this two-week lockdown is a critical decider in our nation’s fight against corona virus, and we ought to be combative about it. So as much as possible, #StayHome.
The world has survived similar plagues, we can and surely will survive this too, but with you alive!
Aluta Continua! Aluta Contiua. I thank you for your attention.
Ghana is likely to go on lockdown if citizens refuse to obey the guidelines produced by Ghana Health in order to reduce the spread of the virus in the country.
As at now Ghana has recorded 134 coronavirus cases with 3 recorded deaths and health experts are suggesting to the government to order a temporal lockdown on the country.
And in case the government order for a lockdown, many are likely to find themselves wanting as no one will be allowed to step outside their home in an attempt to purchase or make a visit to a friend or even a relative .
As a regular Ghanaian,while you’re wondering if such lockdown will happen, below are some major commodities you must stock before the lockdown.
Gari should never run out in your home because it is the cheapest commodity if I should say. You can use it in place of banku since you could prepare 3ba with it, soakings and others.
PREPAID & WATER
To have a sound lockdown, is a must to have enough light and water backup.
Bag of rice & Bag of Beans
Rice is one of the common food item you have to stock if you really want to survive a lock down safe as Beans . Having about 2 bags of 50KG can survive your household for at least three months.
CASSAVA & CORN DOUGH
With your Cassava and Corn Dough, means you are really ready for the lock down because the content of these two paddies can sustain you for hours when is been prepared for meal. Stocking some bags of corn & cassava dough in your fridge can save your entire family from the lock down .
DRIED FISH (POPULARLY KNOWN AS KATE SCHOOL BOYS)
‘Keta School Boys‘ are sun dried salted Anchovies; commonly used among the Ewe tribe from Ghana. The salted, dried Anchovies are usually dry roasted and had with the ever popular spicy Ghanaian Salsa (known as Raw Pepper) with a hot steamed milled corn dumpling called Akple. Economically i think it can also sustain a lock down .
Didn’t want to add this but many could forget. Having these varieties in your home will keep the family alive. Domestically these two items are mostly use in preparing soup locally called Abenkwan. which is from Palm and Nkatekwan which is from Groundnut
GALLONS PALM NUT OIL
MILO, NIDO, SUGAR & SHITO
I know this four items are usually used in each household but this time, it is a must to stock them in large quantity.
GAS, CHARCOAL & FIREWOOD
We all know making cooking possible, one may need a flame from these sources depending on the situation you may find yourself. Having them in stock can really help during the lock down.
Excess of toiletries must also be part of the stock for a household.
With the above mention items, even if the Government of Ghana decided to order for a lockdown, i think there wont be any major problem in each individual household.
