The parents of both kids are said to be disadvantaged folks, also known here as Zogoes.

Disadvantaged youth in Liberia engage in drug abuse and other criminal activities, and their number continues to rise daily as more ghettos and criminal hideouts are set up in communities. 

Women of Grace has been helping Ebola orphans and underprivileged children in Liberia since 2015.

In an exclusive interview with this paper Tuesday, 28 March 2023, Women of Grace Coordinator in Liberia Sylvester Wamah said that they got in contact with the children when their picture was posted on social media by a lady identified as Favor Christina Denyan.

Wamah said the poster was seeking help from a humanitarian organization.

According to him, the lady posted saying “these children need help, they were abandoned by their parents who are on the street and on drugs.”

“But, I am not financially stable in providing their needs. They were just in the community sleeping in the street and people were taking advantage of them that’s how I took them in and started taking care of them,” Wamah quoted the lady as saying.

“But they need a safe home and they need good care. I cannot afford it.”

Upon seeing the pictures on social media, and how the lady had pleaded, Wamah said Women of Grace contacted Madam Denyan, the poster.

He added that the organization swiftly took action in finding the kids a safe home and proper medical help.

For her part, Women of Grace International Liberia Executive Director Ambassador Felecia Garlo noted that her organization is presently caring for 150 children.

She said they include Ebola orphans in Gblokata, Bong County. She assured Madam Denyan that the abandoned children will receive the necessary care. 

 “This is not about politics, we all must look back at where we come from. The future of Liberia is in the hands of the children, so we all must help in preparing them,” she said.

“Look, my colleague and I are sacrificing not because we are wealthy, but because when we are gone these kids will be the leaders of Liberia,” she explained.
