LoneStar MTN staff led by the head of Mobile Money Department Atty. Massa Mayson – Dennis shared festive season gifts with orphans at the Antoinette Tubman Cheshire in Sinkor and extend the gesture at Brass for Africa – Liberia at GSA Road in Paynesville and Love a Child Orphanage at VOA Community along the Roberts International Airport (RIA) Highway.
Donations at the orphanages included food, toys, electronics, generator, educational and sporting materials, among others.
The company indicated its passion about less fortunate people, as Mobile Money Team members played games, danced with orphans at Brass for Africa – Liberia and Love a Child orphanages.
As part of activities to entertain kids at these orphanages, Liberian comedian Angel Michael performed at each of the homes during the donations and was live during performances for followers on social media.
Presenting the gifts on behalf of LoneStar Cell MTN, Atty. Massa Mayson – Dennis indicated that the company is passionate about making lives brighter.
She says they do this by giving back support to those in need, and this Christmas season, the company through its Mobile Money Department is supporting three organizations to ensure a bright and cherished festive period for the less fortunate.
According to her, it’s a yearly program that LoneStar MTN started in 2017 December, beginning first with the Antoinette Tubman Cheshire Home in Sinkor.
Presenting the gifts, Atty. Dennis expressed LoneStar Cell MTN’s season greetings to the orphanages and also thanked the board, management and staff of MTN for giving Mobile Money Department the platform to identify with less fortunate folks in December.
“And we are very excited to celebrate this with you,” she told recipients at the orphanages.
Earlier in opening remarks, Mobile Money Channel and Development Specialist Mr. William Saysay indicated that the gesture is not just LoneStar Cell MTN’s corporate social responsibility, but it’s more of a human nature of identifying with people that are in need.
The orphanages expressed appreciation to LoneStar Cell MTN for the donation, and wished more blessings upon the company.
Antoinette Tubman Cheshire Supervisor Mr. Jonah Y. Dolakeh says the orphanage looks out to see people in the society to be a blessing to the orphans.
According to him the orphanage takes care of people with multiple disabilities and many of them were abandoned by their parents.
He expresses thanks to LoneStar Cell MTN for all the donations, especially the pampers because eight of the twelve residents at the orphanage use pampers on a daily basis.
Mr. Dolakeh says the orphanage is very grateful also for the generator donated because they have been in darkness since the meter for their power line was stolen.
