During the COVID-19 pandemic, by grace, hygiene is one of the keys to saving lives—COSTECH school is no exception
The COVID-19 pandemic especially threatens the 3 billion people who do not have access to adequate handwashing facilities with soap and water in their homes. We at the GWAM stand side by side with those most vulnerable to this dramatic pandemic. That is why we are working on new projects, encouraging education and good hygiene practices, providing facilities, and applying our in-country expertise in communities where we have already guaranteed access to water and sanitation to thousands of people since the start of the pandemic. It is by grace we enjoy the success and we give thanks for your help!
COSTECH School (College of Science and Technology—junior and senior high school) is no exception. The everyday challenges that we all are facing are the same for those in Northern Ghana. Based on handwashing, personal hygiene is and continues to be an essential factor in eradicating epidemics like diarrhea or pneumonia, which cause the death of more than 800 children per day in the world’s most disadvantaged communities. And right now, it is a fundamental tool that, together with the social distance, will allow us to fight COVID-19 in Ghana.
COSTECH school is no exception
At COSTECH, the children are returning for the school year. The challenge that faces the administration is the same challenge we face here in the US—a suffering economy. Many of the school children’s parents are currently working very little due to COVID and cannot pay their school fees. We ask if you can assist any in addition to your regular donation, it will bless the school staff and children. At COSTECH, the children are gaining a top-ranked education in Ghana, and they are learning about the gospel of Christ in daily class devotional time. COSTECH is a blessing to the community and the church, and we are grateful for your prayers during these challenging times.
