Orphan Concern and Partners Fête Orphans during Easter Holiday

first_imgOrphan Concern Liberia and its partners held a fair for dozens of orphaned children at the Monrovia City Park on Easter Sunday at the Monrovia City Park. The children were not able to spend the holidays with their parents who they lost, some during the Ebola outbreak.It was exciting seeing the many children, including some who were clearly still traumatized by their loss, happy and excited as a culture troop, consisted of orphans as well, music, food and an Easter egg hunt was carried out.The Founder of Orphan Concern Liberia, Amos Sawboh, has over the years fought tirelessly to see to it that orphans are helped, placed in school and supported. He has become a great relief for the children. This holiday, he thought it very necessary to give the children the love that comes with the holiday and to spread the word to the children that God loves them.Among those that graced the occasion were: Satta F. Sheriff Speaker of the Children Parliament, who “took up time to speak to our kids and inspired us,” Sawboh said; and David from the Ministry of Gender, a young man who believes in the cause of children.Sawboh also acknowledged the “journalists with a humanitarian heart that took up time to speak and serve the food for the kids.”Amongst others who attended were, Fidel Saydee and Kelvin Kpakolo Teikah, the manager and staff of Chevron Park, and the Crack Team at Orphans Concern-Liberia.Amos says he looks forward to using the park for further events like this one, and encouraged the orphans to continue living with strength and hope of a better future.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Home of Eagles Not Ready For 20142015 New School Year

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Recommended for you Providenciales – Hundreds of students this morning file back into the government school system after a one week delay and for many of them, the institutions will still not be ready. Contractors hired to rush the work to completion, when we checked on the weekend were unable to get the jobs done fully… partly to blame, the unexpected damages in the aftermath of TS Cristobal sapping the human resources of Public Works… but also the late start year after year in the refurbishment of government schools over Summer break. Some of the damages we saw, same as from the start of the last school year… destroyed desks, insufficient seating, broken chairs, busted windows and doors, graffiti on the walls, paint jobs needed, water logged and halfway fixed kindergarten playgrounds, inoperative ceiling fans and at Clement Howell High School, that bathroom block is not yet done…the area cordoned off as that construction continues. Government’s budget for the work at these 14 schools far too low, heavily criticized, and said to be only a third of what is actually needed to get the schools in solid shape. Officials quiet going into the weekend… but we are expecting to hear officially from Public Works and the Ministry of Education. Making matters worse, the muggy weather which continues to create localized flooding and makes getting to school quite a chore in an area like Blue Hills where the community is not pedestrian friendly; students have to walk in the streets. Nonetheless, educators and students are encouraged to perform well… even reminded to take care of these schools.
