A Liberian comedian known by stage name ‘Shati’ has joined the ongoing free cooked food distribution campaign initiative undertaken in Monrovia and its environs by Indian Consul General Mr. Shri Upjit Singh Sachdeva or Jeety as a way of helping vulnerable and less fortunate Liberians during the coronavirus crisis.
Comedian Shati usually visits the food distribution centers at Vai Town and Slipway communities, respectively, providing some level of entertainment to hundreds of less fortunate Liberians that receive hot food daily. The Liberian comedian who loves wearing long shoes, dances to ease his followers’ stress and worries as they queue to receive their COVID-19 hot meal.
He is particularly known for loving children and making them his best friends at the distribution centers. When he takes the stage to perform, Shati calls the names of children at the center many times and walks majestically through the distribution line with his plate of hot meal in his hand.
The comedian tells reporters that he decided to join the Indian Consul General’s Covid – 19 hot food distribution exercise because of the wonderful work and contribution Mr. Jeety is carrying out in changing the way of life for the less fortunate Liberians.
He praises the foreign diplomat for his meaningful and worthy campaign at the time many less fortunate Liberians are unable to provide food for themselves due to lack of basic skills.
Shati discloses that Mr. Jeety will always be remembered by the less fortunate people in the country who continue to benefit, not only from his hot meal distribution, but also from payment of their medical bills and provision of football materials, among other things in the society.
He then calls on Liberians residing in the country to also join the Indian Consul General by going to the aid of their fellow compatriots who, for unknown reasons, find themselves as vulnerable folks or zogoes.
Meanwhile, over 160,000 plates of cooked meals have been distributed to vulnerable people since the start of the distribution in several localities around Monrovia.
