Mr. T. Dweh Toe, a school principal and an evangelist, is in serious distress, having lost his entire house to violent storm that swept across Sayayla Community in Salala District, Lower Bong County recently, rendering him homeless.
The victim has sent out an SOS call to non-governmental organizations, philanthropists, well-meaning Liberians and the Government of Liberia to come to his aid to enable him recover from his lost.
Mr. Toe, who is Principal of the Sayayla Public School in Salala District appeared very frustrated when he spoke with reporters recently in Weala, Margibi County, appealing for assistance to enable him reconstruct his only earthly possession that was destroyed by the storm recently in Bong County, putting the entire cost for the reconstruction as more than US$2,000.
The storm victim said he needs about eight bundles (32 gage) of zinc, wire nails, ply woods, steel rods, cement and workmanship, amongst others to rebuild his home, adding that he and his entire family had lived in the community from 1999 up to the time of the recent disaster, but were now constrained to temporarily move in a house owned by a neighbor.
He decried low salary from the government as another thing that is contributing to his suffering, lamenting that many of his colleagues are well paid than him. Evangelist Toe said he and his wife suffered for a very long time to build a house, which was their only earthly possession, but was destroyed within a day by nature.
He said God will bless anyone, who will be a blessing to them by contributing to the rebuilding of their house. Violent storms similarly swept across Monrovia and its environs recently, removing roofs from buildings and bringing down billboards, light poles as well as smashing cars with one death reported.
