A Liberia-based charity organisation, Dr Cassell Foundation, has donated over 100 bags of rice and L$195,000 to hundreds of visually impaired and less-fortunate citizens in Montserrado and Margibi Counties.
Development Diaries learnt that the 12 towns that benefitted from the gesture included Gbomo Kollie, Tommy, Jwelesue, Varteka, Sagbah, Balimue, Gaimusue, Daimusue, Daimamu, Mophe Farm, Dillon Farm, Compound and Townsend town in Margibi County.
A member of the foundation, Mr Tapple E. Doe, who presented the items, said, ‘We know that things are very tough, so the foundation decided to make donations to people that are in need’.
The Executive Director of the Group of 77, Madam Wayfa Ciapha, received the donation and appreciated the foundation for the kind gesture. She called on other humanitarian and philanthropic organisations to emulate the Dr Cassell Foundation.
‘This is not little because God is in it. We appreciate it and say thanks for thinking about us at this time. We know that others have more than this, but they [did not] think about reaching to us, but you were able to reach out to us. We are going to pray that God will be able to open many doors that you will be able to reach to us in a greater way’, she said.
