The management of International Students Centre (ISGC) has donated a number of items to inmates of Forster Home located at Frafraha near Adentan in the Greater Accra region.

The ISGC also hosted about forty (40) of the inmates to a party at its cafeteria located at Teiman in the La Nkwantang Madina Municipal Assembly in the Greater Accra region.

The items which comprised large quantities of toilet rolls, three bags of rice and washing bleaches including a set of lunch packs and drinks for each of the inmates were presented by the Equatorial Guinea (EG) Ambassador in Ghana, Jesus Mba Abaha.

According to him, the donation was to commemorate the 49th independence anniversary of Equatorial Guinea (EG) which was celebrated on Thursday October 12, 2017.

He stated that Equatorial Guinea and Ghana have long standing diplomatic relationship which has resulted in the two countries entering into a number of agreements including a visa free entry for their respective nationals.

Mr. Abaha further stated that the construction of ISGC in Ghana by his President, Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo depicted a very high level of trust Equatorial Guinea has evolved for Ghana.

He urged the various nationals resident in the Guest Centre (ISGC) to exhibit a high level of responsibility reminding them that they are equally representatives of their respective countries.

Mr. Paul Sassou, General Manager of ISGC told the DAILY GUIDE that ISGC is an innovative learning and hospitality centre.

According to him the facility which has 126 rooms, an 80 seater cafeteria and conference rooms among a number of state of the art facilities, is to provide safe accommodation for Equatorial Guinea students and other nationals in Ghana.

“At present we have nationals from our home country and a couple of others from Nigeria and Ghana in the residence but we believe that other nationals will hear of our services and apply to lodge with us,” he stated.

He explained that the ISGC was established to eulogize the memories of an Equatorial Guinean student Jose Maria Nsue Ndje who died while on a study tour in Ghana.

The Chief of Teiman, Nii Manle Dzahaa I lauded the government of Equatorial Guinea for the donation.

He assured that they, as landlords, will continue to cooperate with the management of the ISGC.

A senior member of staff of the Forster Home Orphanage Ellen Ohene-Bekoe who received the items on behalf of the Forster Home expressed appreciation for the donation saying that the home largely depends on such donations.

She appealed to individuals and other benevolent institutions for assistance.
