Gender Ministry Applauds Diaspora Liberians For Donation
The Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection (MGCSP) extends special commendation to a California based group of Diaspora Liberians under the banner 'Conscious Liberians' for a donation of 100bags of rice intended for disadvantage women and children.The Ministry applauds the group for committing their resources to such a caused, and further appreciates their human thought, especially towards the upkeep of disadvantaged Liberians in the wake of the Novel CoronaVirus Disease, a global pandemic that has ravished every sector of the society.
Gender Minister, Mrs. Williametta E Saydee-Tarr, receiving the donation on Thursday, June 25, 2020 described the gesture as a blessing that will be highly appreciated by the targeted beneficiaries.
"We already have so many targeted areas, and that, we were looking forward to every little contribution that will address the needs of Liberians in disadvantaged communities", Minister Saydee-Tarr added.
"We are happy that this is their initial contribution because at the moment we are hoping to assemble and raise more recourses aimed at addressing the constraints of those in the disadvantaged communities" the Gender boss averred.
Presenting the food item on behalf of the group to the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection at its Congo Town, Ministerial Complex's office, the MICAT Deputy Chief highlighted the passion of the Diaspora based Conscious Liberians to spread additional contribution across several other sectors of the populace. He disclosed that the 100-bags of rice is the group's initial contribution to women and children in disadvantaged communities in Liberia.
Accepting the donation on behalf of the Ministry, Minister Saydee-Tarr emphasized the timeliness of the contribution in reaching out and catering for a sector of the populace that needs the most attention in such a time. The Gender Boss also applauded Deputy Information Minister for Public Affairs, Eugene Faghon for initiating the conversation and flagging the issue of disadvantaged communities with the Diaspora Group.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection appreciates all diaspora groups and individuals who are already spreading benevolence toward their fellow Liberians living at home. MoGCSP is calling on all other Liberians in the Diaspora, who might think that what they have is too little to be appreciated, to please believe that for a desperate family, what woukd seen as too little, turns out to be a lot. As such hopefully others who are not presently intervening, will emulate the good example of 'Conscious Liberians.' The ministry indicates that by doing so, it will help tremendously in addressing the constraints of Liberians in disadvantaged communities.
