Tom Russell, a foreigner from the United Kingdom who came to spend one week in Ghana, ended up stranded due to the COVID-19 lockdown rules and has decided to start up a charity project in the country.
A report by Ghanaweb.com indicates that Russell set up the initiative called Give Back Ghana which provides essential items packaged in boxes.
It is reported that each box comprises food and sanitation materials that can take care of the average household in Accra for one week.
Tom Russell teamed up with Alfred Kwarko, a Ghanaian, to start up the initiative that is already helping scores of people in the capital city of Ghana.
The British national's one-week visit to Ghana was with the intent to source opportunities to expand local Ghanaian businesses to the European market.
When that fell through, Russell was quite worried about the situation but decided to put his entrepreneurial skills and passion for helping people to another use.
On the issue of border closure, YEN.com.gh also published that one University of Ghana student from Nigeria identified as JuniorOvk on Twitter has poured out his frustration after the school scheduled physical exams for August.
Ovk dropped the video on his personal handle in a post sighted by YEN.com.gh that is fast-going viral for its passionate and captivating nature.
According to an announcement by the Ghanaian university on its official website, re-sit examinations for first semester courses have been scheduled to start on 1 August 2020.
