In continuation of its 2022 annual free donations to several Liberian orphanages, the Liberian-American based charity and humanitarian organization, Armah and Lydia Lansanah Foundation, has donated several assorted food and nonperishable items, valued more than US$4,000, to the My Brother Keeper’s Orphanage, lower Careysburg District, outside Monrovia.
The donation was presented during the 2022 Christmas annual distribution through the Liberian young women charity group, Youth Educational Organization, on behalf of the ALLF charity group in Liberia.
Speaking at the donation in Careysburg District, Armah Lansanah, Chief Executive Officer, ALLF, said the donation was made possible after lengthy communications and fact-finding missions between authorities of the Youth Educational Organization and the My Brother Keeper’s Orphanage in Careysburg District. The ALLF CEO advised children at the orphanage home to always be honest, committed, dedicated and hardworking, knowing that education is the surest way to becoming a better citizen.
At the colorful distribution hall in Careysburg, the Executive Director of Youth Educational Organization, Lorpu Shantel Franois, extended thanks and gratitude to the Master Cleaning and Consulting Services, based in the United States, for the funds that were used to purchase the 2022 annual free food and assorted nonfood items.
Shantel Franois said her organization was glad to be a part of a program that is in line with their organization’s mandate to cater to the well-being of less privileged Liberian children, mainly in Montserrado County and its environs. She and her close associate, Davidetta Zeelor Forkpah, informed the gathering that since the establishment of their self-financed group in 2019, funds from the Master Cleaning and Consulting Services were the first goodwill gesture.
The Chief Financial Officer of the ALLF, Lydia Kannah Lansanah, and her children also participated in the 2022 annual Christmas distribution of gifts, including sweets to the orphanage children.
Receiving the food and assorted nonfood items, which included rice, copybooks, pencils, vegetable oil and candies, the Founder of My Brother Keeper’s Orphanage, Ralph Gilagu, expressed thanks and gratitude for the gesture, promising that they will be used for the intended purpose to improve the livelihood of the children.
Founder Gilagu informed youth executives of the Educational Organization and ALLF that 36 of the children at the center are orphans while another set of up to 36 children are boarding students. He disclosed that some of them are now in the 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th grades, which makes the needs of the center very complicated.
