A Philanthropist, Mr Maurice Brown, in conjunction with Reverend Father Samuel Atinga, a Lecturer at St. Victor’s Major Seminary in Tamale, have donated 100 dual desks worth 4,000 Ghana Cedis to the Maurice Brown Primary School in Zuarungu.
It would be re-called that Maurice Brown built the said school without furniture, and has fulfilled a pledge to assist the school with furniture.
