Zenith Bank Limited has donated to UHAS two brand new chest freezers to furnish the university’s newly built Sokode Hall of Residence. The gesture, according to Mr. Confidence Lumor, Ho Branch Manager, is to strengthen the relationship between the Bank and UHAS.
He said the donation is also in fulfilment of the requests made by Vice Chancellor Professor Lydia Aziato during her investiture address, noting that there are many “goodies” in store for UHAS.
Receiving the items, Professor Aziato assured the Zenith Bank representatives that the items will be used for the purpose intended; she also appealed to other stakeholders to support the young university to grow.
Several students and members of staff, including deans and directors, were present to receive the donation, and expressed gratitude for the timely gift.
Sokode Hall comprises four apartment-style blocks, each with four floors. The university is hoping for more of such donations to equip each floor with a chest freezer, to enable students to properly store their foods, as the main Campus is isolated from town. All donations are welcome, and interested sponsors are encouraged to contact the university’s administration to arrange a visit.
