Communities in Monrovia and its environs are still benefiting from the goodwill of More Than Me by receiving several relief items including dozens of bags of rice, detergent, chlorine buckets, and soap for preventive measures.
Seven of the recipients of More Than Me’s recent donations were residents of the Big Wolakor Community in the suburb of Monrovia who recently survived the deadly Ebola virus and have returned to their respective communities.
Making the presentation on behalf of More Than Me, Ms. Krubo Kowah, a social worker, said the donation to the Ebola survivors was the NGO’s goodwill and humanitarian assistance for those who were hard hit by the virus, and urged them to use the items presented wisely.
Speaking on behalf of the community, Vinnie J. Paibia thanked More Than Me for its support to his community, noting, “Your organization is the first to come to our rescue; providing us with food and Ebola preventive materials. We are grateful to you, and the entire leadership of this great organization.” Paibia is a community leader believed to be in his late 60s.
The distribution by More Than Me also extended to a local charity organization, the Christian Food Assistance Mission where fifteen bags of rice and twenty buckets for Ebola prevention were presented for onward distribution for other communities.
Receiving the items, the Program Officer of the Christian Food Assistance Mission, Ms. Lovetta Jallah, thanked the organization for the donation, and promised that the items given to her organization would be equally distributed to the various communities.
