SRC participates in Philanthropic Activities - Donates to Cylcone Idai victims

THE 2018/2019 NUST Student Representative Council (SRC) handed over donations for the Cyclone Idai victims to the Vice-Chancellor at the Student Affairs Division today.

The Acting Dean of Students, Ms. Stylish Magida commended the SRC’s initiative as it showed their devotion in doing charity works for the betterment of other people’s lives.

“Such philanthropic activities should be encouraged, supported and nurtured so that this mindset becomes ingrained in the NUST culture that will make our students shine and raise the university flag high,” she said.

In his remarks before handing over the donation, the SRC president, Mr. Dennis Mwashita, expressed his gratitude to the SRC team and all who participated in mobilizing the donation citing that their work will go a long way in helping the cyclone victims.
