A US -based non-profit organization, Good Samaritan Movement, has donated US$1,000 and medical supplies to the Liberian government to fight against Ebola.
The items, which include disinfectants, hand sanitizers, bleach, biohazard bags, among others, were presented to Foreign Minister Augustine Kpehe Ngafuan at the Liberian Consulate in New York on Friday, September 19.
Making the donation, Pastor Nana Frimpong Agyemang said it was his organization's way of identifying with the people of Liberia in this difficult time as the nation is faced with the worst crisis since the end of the civil war.
He prayed that God will alleviate the sufferings of the Liberian people and other countries that have been affected by the Ebola crisis.
He explained that the Good Samarian Movement was established to help those in need, especially in the Third World countries with the mission to reach out to less fortunate such as orphans , widows and people with special medical needs.
Receiving the donation, Foreign Minister Ngafuan thanked the Good Samaritan for the humanitarian gesture and promised to convey the sentiments of the Group to the people and the Government of Liberia.
He noted that while the friendly nations were forthcoming with big donations, the assistance from individuals and philanthropic organizations were equally appreciated because they all can help in varying ways to boost the fight against the deadly disease.
He said if a donation helps to prevent even one more Liberian from dying from Ebola, that donation is a big donation because every Liberian life is precious.
According to a dispatch, Minister Ngafuan expressed thanks to the staff of the Liberian Consulate in New York for helping to coordinate and organized the event.
