Two Liberian humanitarians have begun feeding the Blinds, Cripples and underprivileged with the Sibkor Airfield Community.
Theo Dennis and Peter Scott expressed the belief that the blind, cripple and underprivileged were abandoned by their own families and stakeholders in society.
During the distribution last weekend, each blind, cripple and underprivileged person was given a bag of rice and transportation to take home what they received.
According to Dennis and Scott, the food will last only for a month, following which they (blind and cripple) would return every month for new rations to the end of the year. They also informed the recipients that, in addition to the bag of rice, a feeding program has been launched for the blind and cripple to eat two times daily every day in the Shark’s neighborhood, Airfield.
A huge number of blind and cripple people from across Central Monrovia and immediate environs, including Bonar Farm, Red light, Duala, Jacob Town and Sinkor, who usually visit places, including Vamoma House, 20th Street and various supermarkets in Sinkor in search of livelihood, queued in the Shark’s neighborhood of Airfield Sinkor to receive a bag of rice each at the start of the feeding projects initiated by the two Liberian.
The project is intended to keep the blind and cripple out of the streets and danger.
Some of the blind and cripple told this paper that they were gratified by the efforts of the two Liberian humanitarians, noting that the launch of the project by the two Liberians was indeed the solution to their problems.
Annie Kiazolu- a mother of three, said though she would still continue to beg, it would be at a minimum level. “Maybe when you see me on the street begging, it is to get money for soap or other household materials or school fees for my children; for the issue of food, Uncle Theo and Scott have settled that- let me tell you something my son, this bag of rice will not even finish in a month and I will get another from here again because me and my children will come here and eat three times a day, and when we eat here and go home, we will not cook again,” she noted happily.
Another blind, only identified as Paul, urged other wealthy Liberians to emulate the example of Theo Dennis and Peter Scott, stressing that as the two Liberians were feeding them, he wanted others to create a scholarship scheme for the blind and cripple.
Both men Theo Dennis and Peter Scott could not speak to the Press on record, but noted, off the record that the project was their own initiative., adding that wanted nothing in return for their initiative except God’s Blessing.
