SCOAN donates to the Savelugu School for the deaf

Prophet T.B Joshua’s Synagogue Church of all Nations is to connect pipelines from the main Savelugu water treatment plant to the Savelugu School for the Deaf in the Northern Region.

The project estimated to cost Ghc30,000 is expected to be constructed within one week.

The church’s decision is informed by the unwholesome water students and staff of the school drink and use for other domestic purposes.

This came to light on Saturday, May 24, 2014 when the church donated a large consignment of assorted food items, gallons of oil and other valuables worth Ghc7,000 to the school.

Leader of the delegation, Ghanaian High Court Judge, His Lordship Justice John Ajet- Nassam told Citi News that the founder and General Overseer of the Synagogue Church of all Nations, Prophet T.B Joshua, was touched by media reports that final year students of the Savelugu School for the Death were sent home because there was no food to feed them.

He said, “the donation was made on behalf of the Founder, Leader and General Overseer of the Synagogue Church of all Nations headquartered in Nigeria, Prophet T.B Joshua.”

He continued saying, “he and the Emmanuel TV partners heard about the plight of the Savelugu School for the Death and the information was that they don’t have a grain of rice so the students are at home, but they are the final year students there; so having this report, Prophet T.B Joshua immediately organized some bags of rice and oil to be presented to the school.

According to Justice Ajet John Ajet-Nassam, the donation was presented to the school authorities for the upkeep of the students there.

He said plans were afoot by the church to uplift the image of the Savelugu School for the Deaf which was established to cater for the education needs of deaf people in the Northern Region.

Headmistress of the School, Madam Gertrude Dasah, thanked the church for the kind gesture.

She promised the donation would be used for its intended purpose.

Management of the school earlier appealed to public-spirited organizations and philanthropists to support the school in the area of infrastructure and feeding.

Headmistress of the school, Madam Gertrude Dasah, said it was regrettable criminals have been terrorizing the students and that there was rapid encroachment on the school land because there was no fence wall.

Available records indicate that the school, which was established in 1978, currently has a total of 283 students.
