Jubilance residents of Memeh Town, in rural Montserrado County today, September 6, 2016 received one of America’s respected humanitarians, Kimberly Moore who is in the Country along with another American Professor as guests of the Founder of the New Dimension of Hope (NDH).
The Founder of the NDH, Mr. Ebenezer Norman who himself was overwhelmed of the level of enthusiasm being exhibited by the residents of the area, held talks with chiefs, elders and youth groups while Madam Moore and her counterpart also held talks with women and young girls explaining the importance of education.
For his part, Mr. Norman said he was pleased with the people of the area for providing him a parcel of land to build a boarding school in the area and also help in the transformation of their lives by providing those basic needs that are lacking.
As Madam Moore and her counterpart tour the Memeh Town community which has the population of over 3,000 inhabitants, residents of the town joyously sang and danced traditional songs for their visitors who themselves despite of the cultural differences also danced with their new friends (Liberian Traditional Women).
The meeting between the visitors and the citizens of Memeh Town went well as applauds and clapping from the citizens went on continuously, while the visitors themselves could not withhold their joyous feelings as their visit became colorful and overwhelming.
Speaking to the GNN, Mother Fata Morris Potent whose father (Old Man Memeh) established the town in 1905, expressed gratitude and appreciation to Madam Moore and her team for coming to the rescue to her people, noting, “Words are inadequate to express for coming to our town. We are happy for Mr. Norman to bring education to our doors in order for our children to go to school,” Madam Potent speaking told her guests.
Dozens of young girls as young as fifteen years old have given birth and have dropped out of school due to the lack of support, while others who have not gone through these unfortunate situations (Pregnancies) called on Madam Moore to help them get back to school
Madam Moore speaking to the women and young girls assured them her support for girls’ education, stressing, “With the arrangement between Mr. Norman and myself we will do our best to rescue you from poverty by making sure that young women and girls receive sound education,” she told the group during her interaction with them.
The Memeh Town lacks basic social services including safe drinking water, toilets and school to have their children to be in school and do away with those things that will drag them down.
