As local and international efforts intensify in support of the fight against Ebola, which has taken thousands of lives in Liberia and the sub region, an American non-governmental organization, “More Than Me” has joined the fight.
The NGO, which is involved in educating Liberian youths over the weekend presented several items, including motorbike, Infrared Digital Temperature Thermometer gun, and a dozen of mobile phones to the Caldwell Ebola Task Force.
The presentation was made by the group on behalf of its founder, Katie Meyler, who also expressed interest in purchasing land here for the construction of a state of the art school complex, and a faculty boarding place in the township.
Receiving the items, the acting Commissioner of Caldwell Township, Madam Hawa Johnson, praised the charity for its numerous contributions to the growth and development of Liberian youths through education, and expressed thanks and appreciation to ‘More Than Me’ for providing rain gears, including boots and coats to the Caldwell Task Force, among others.
Commissioner Johnson also thanked the group’s founder, Katie Meyler for her humanitarian support to the Liberian people, saying, “We appreciate you and your organization for your countless generosity over the years,” Commissioner Johnson said.
Since its establishment a year ago, “More Than Me” has made some significant effort in making sure that Liberian girls are provided educational opportunity and other benefits that will enhance their lives.
In its drive to making sure the deadly virus is kicked out of Liberia and other affected countries, the NGO has also embarked on public awareness and donated an ambulance to the Government of Liberia to boost the fight.
