The Kyeremeh Oppong Daniel (KOD) Foundation, founded and headed by a third year chemistry student at the Kwame Nkrumah Univeristy of Science and Technology(KNUST), Kyeremeh Oppong Daniel has joined the fight against the novel coronavirus with the KOD Community Initiative.
Not long ago, the foundation started its operations of distributing hand sanitizers, nose masks and Veronica buckets to some poor residents in some villages across the country. The foundation has so far distributed items worth GH30,000.
The foundation started in the Ashanti Region as part of their quest to visit all regions with their philanthropic works . In Ashanti Region they started from communities in the kwabre east district precisely Ahwiaa, Meduma, Mampongteng and Buokrom. The team also visited the Sekyere Constituency precisely Agona and then to Asante Akyim all in the Ashanti Region.
From there Kyeremeh Oppong Daniel and his team moved to the Brong and Ahafo Regions of Ghana precisely towns and village in Goaso,Techiman and Kasapin to donate nose masks, sanitisers and to also sensitise the people on the preventive measures of the current pandemic.
Students in these vicinities also got their share following the reopening of schools among others. The president of the Republic, Nana Akuffo Addo, yesterday announced the reopening of schools for final year junior high, senior high and tertiary students, beginning 15th June, 2020.
Kyeremeh Oppong Daniel is a third year chemistry student at KNUST, student entrepreneur and a staunch youth activist.
The KOD foundation was established to assist and make life comfortable for people who for certain reasons cannot afford certain social amenities.
Speaking to Success Africa, he said that “we, as Africans cannot only depend on the whites for everything so what I can do as a youth is to support my country in my own small way to help ensure that the lives of my country men are well sustained. We are looking at getting to other regions with central region being our focus and other regions as well. Students in less previllaged places are our target now as schools resume.”
The foundation will be looking at extending their helping hand to the less privileged people in most villages since most philanthropists focus much of their attention in the urban places.
