St Augustine’s students enroll orphans in Cape Coast on NHIS

Students of the Child Rights Club of St. Augustine’s in Cape Coast have taken a bold step to enroll orphaned children at the Light House Children’s Home in Cape Coast on the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).

The Students registered 21 Children of the Home for a three year period after spending a day with them.

According to the president of the Club, Ellis Fred, enrolling the less privileged students on the scheme was one of the greatest treasures that the orphaned children will live to cherish.

“Our club educates people on their rights and responsibilities. All of these would have to go together. We cannot just come here to tell them what their rights and responsibilities are and go away. The little that we have ought to be given to these less privileged ones. They deserve them and we will do more. We have come here to give them assorted food items and some clothings to help them. We want them to feel happy and receive some education since education is key to unlocking their potentials,” he said.

Ellis Fred entreated other students in Ghana to cultivate the habit of sharing with the poor and the less privileged in Society.

“We are privileged to have our parents alive. We have had the benefit of being educated in the best of schools. All we need to do is to look back to help people who were not privileged like us. Let’s feel for them; let’s think about them and most importantly, let’s share the little that we have with them,” he adds.

The Administrator of the Light House Children’s Home, John Yeboah Mensah, thanked the students for their show of love and their good thoughts about the orphaned Children. “Our objective is to ensure that these needy children are well catered for to attain their full potentials. Like Oliver Twist, we will ask for more assistance”

The students donated drinks, toiletries, bags of rice and clothes and other assorted food items.
