The University of Cape Coast (UCC) has presented shopping vouchers to its international students who are still staying on campus as a result of the closure of Ghana’s borders to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.

The students, numbering about 26 also received items such as hand sanitizers, face masks, bags of sachet water among others to help them live comfortably on campus during the Covid-19 period.  

Prof. Dora Edu-Buandoh, Pro-Vice-Chancellor of the University who made the presentation said the gesture was to help mitigate the hardships the students may be going through as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Many of the University’s international students were unable to return to their home countries following the closure of the University and  Ghana’s airports to check the spread of the virus.

“Our international students have been on campus since the President announced the closure of educational institutions in the Country and we are aware things have not been easy for them”, she noted.

“That is why we have taken steps to support them with the shopping vouchers and other protective items to ensure their health and safety,” she added.

On academic work, Prof. Edu-Buandoh urged them to actively participate in lectures on the e-learning platform and also study the materials provided for their various courses.
