Hon. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, the member of parliament for North Tongu Constituency, surprised Gertrude Nutsukpui, a young and inspiring SHS graduate with a valuable laptop gift and a university scholarship for being the first volunteer teacher who organized free classes for displaced victims/students of the Akosombo Dam spillage.
Gertrude has been making a significant impact in her community, Mepe St. Kizito Camp, by selflessly organizing free classes for children affected by the recent floods caused by the Volta River Authority (VRA). Hon. Ablakwa recognized her dedication and resilience in the face of adversity.
The VRA-induced floods resulted in the displacement of numerous families, leaving them in challenging circumstances.
Despite her own displacement, she set aside her personal hardships and took the initiative to provide educational support to the children living in the camp.
Also, Hon. Ablakwa has not only presented her with a laptop to aid her in her educational endeavors but also assured her of a full university scholarship.
Hon. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa expressed his admiration for Gertrude and emphasized that her actions exemplify the incredible compassion and resilience that exists within Ghana.
The story of Gertrude and the Mepe St. Kizito Camp is a testament to the strength and spirit of the Ghanaian people, showcasing the existence of countless unsung heroes who rise to the occasion during times of crisis.
