They also spoke to the students on personal hygiene as the surest way of preventing the two diseases.

The education programme was carried out with the help of District Public Health personnel who advised the student to wash their hands regularly with soap under running water.

Employees of the Accra office of SEWA also donated over 40 bottles of large sized hand sanitizers to the school.

Other items donated were stationery, fruit juice and noodles.

The all-day event also saw the rank and file of the electronics giant interacting with the students through sporting activities such as athletics and football, dancing competitions and a question and answer session to test their knowledge in ICT.

Mr Harry Park, the Managing Director of Samsung Electronics West Africa, said the Samsung Employee Volunteer Programme was an initiative by the electronics giant to give their staff the opportunity to give back to the community while interacting with them in an informal manner.

He said it was also an avenue through which employees got the chance to address pertinent social issues and challenges.

?These students are our future hence they must be motivated in any way possible to be able to impart in them values that we hope to see in our future leaders,? he added.
