Donated items included clothes and copybooks to young women and girls, including some disabled citizens at the Ganta rehabilitation Center.
Also among the donated matierials were some essential medical supplies given to the Ganta United Methodist Hospital, Saclepea Comprehensive Health Center and the Rehab Hospital respectively.
The medical supplies included drugs, some x–ray accessories and syringes.
Ms. Cecelia Suomie, founder of the organization, said “This is my organization’s way of identifying with our sisters who are on the street looking for support... [We are encouraging them] to get out of the street and begin thinking about doing something constructive.
“These medical supplies are also intended to augment [the] work of our doctors at hospitals for smooth operations,” she added.
“Presently our organization is sponsoring 16 girls in school in Ganta, and we are hoping to extend our service to other parts of country,” she added.
Ganta is one of several growing cities in Liberia where young women are frequently found in night clubs and bars throughout the days and nights.
Ganta City Councilman Bob Emmanuel Paye lauded Ms. Suomie and her organization for their far-sightedness in establishing an organization whose goal is to educate girl children and extend helping hands to the less privileged women in society.
Founded in 2009, Namenla is interested in helping underprivileged women and girls to become useful to society.
“We are also embarking on an agricultural project so as to help those who are going to school to find something to do; and pretty soon we will be here to commence,” she concluded.
Dr. Paul Whesseh of Saclapea Comprehensive Health Center has commended the organization for its gesture and urged the donors to do more. “It is not so much for the donation but the idea [that you thought] about the Health Center is good and welcoming.”
