A United States-based charity, Save More Kids, donates assorted food items worth more than US$22,000 to the Clar Hope Foundation, owned by First Lady, Clar Marie Weah.
Items donation include several bags of American seasoned sardines and
Perfection enriched rice.
The head of Save More Kids, Quanuquanei Karmue, lauds First Lady
Clar Weah, for her humanitarian initiatives aimed at improving the
lives of underprivileged Liberians, a move he says, is buttressing
government’s Pro-poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development.
Making the presentation recently in Monrovia, Mr. Karmue said
his organization and donors were pleased to support First Lady Weah’s
effort for the benefit of Liberians who are in dire need of help.
He said the gesture is their way of giving back to the development of the country.
The donation also marked the beginning of an official partnership
between the Clar Hope Foundation and Save More Kids towards bolstering humanitarian outreach initiatives to most vulnerable Liberians.
Save More Kids, established in January 2013, focuses on changing lives of children trapped with bad choices due to devastating conditions.
Meanwhile, Mr. Karmue has also presented copy of his book entitled, |Witness to the First Lady.”
According to him, the book is a memoir which explains his experience from the Liberian civil war and the dreadful impact the crises bear on citizens and the country.
Receiving the donation, First Lady Weah commended Save More Kids, a Liberian-owned international charity, for the gesture.
Ms Weah described the gesture as timely, noting that it would greatly
as sist the needy people of Liberia, not only vulnerable children such
as orphans and street kids but also elderly indigents, who are regular
beneficiaries of her Foundation’s monthly elderly feeding program.
The First Lady provides food rations to nearly 2,000 elderly people on
the last Thursday of each month under the Elderly Feeding Program and
regularly provides food and non-food support to over ten orphanages monthly. Editing by Jonathan Browne
