KNUST SRC Enhances Campus Safety; Donates First Aid Kits to Traditional Halls

In a significant move to boost student well-being, the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) Students’ Representative Council (SRC) has donated new first-aid kits to all six traditional halls of residence. This initiative addresses a critical need for updated medical supplies on campus.

The donation comes in response to a plea from the hall caucus of the KNUST Parliament House during the first State of the SRC Address. The outdated First Aid boxes in the halls have now been replaced with new ones, fully stocked with essential medications.

The SRC President, Miss Yvonne Osei Adobea, along with the SRC Health Officer, Miss Doreen Tachie Donkor, led a team of SRC executives in presenting the kits to the various hall presidents and representatives. “The health and safety of our students is paramount,” said Miss Adobea.

“These first aid kits will provide students with immediate access to essential medical supplies in case of minor emergencies.” The hall presidents expressed their gratitude for the timely donation.

“We are grateful to the SRC for this timely donation,” said the President of Unity Hall, Mr. Samuel Boakye. “These first aid kits will go a long way in ensuring the wellbeing of our students.”

This donation is part of the SRC’s ongoing efforts to support student welfare on campus. Other initiatives include educating floor representatives on safety and first aid procedures, organizing health screenings, promoting aerobics, and advocating for improved student health services.

Miss Doreen Tachie Donkor and her team are actively involved in these efforts, emphasizing the importance of safety and health education in the halls. The SRC’s commitment to enhancing student health and safety reflects its broader mission to create a supportive and secure campus environment for all KNUST students.
