A local charity organization, the Friends of Christopher Swaray (FOCS), has donated to 10 schools in the Paynesville Community, outside Monrovia, a consignment of over 200 school kits valued about US$1000.
Schools included Mary A. Mayson Education Foundation Primary School, the J.K. Demey School, Citizens Assembly International Elementary and Junior High School, Police Academy Public School, Christ Miracle of Faith and the Ann Sandell International School.
Others are Life Foundation Academy, Roland Woheel Institute, Paynesville Community School Annex one and two, respectively.
The items were distributed through the Progressive Youth for Positive Change (PYPC) that is based in Montserrado County Electoral District #5. They contained sanitizers, cartons of deodorant, soaps, dozens of hand gloves, chlorine tablets, and sanitary fittings as well as garbage drums.
The items, according to FOCS chair, S. Cabrinida P. Goodlin, are mainly for sanitary purposes, “because about this time of the year, several campuses and communities are prone to disease outbreak, and therefore, we want the students to remain safe by practicing disease preventive measures such as using sanitary fittings.”
“We are friends of Christopher Swarary, residing in Police Academy, Paynesville City. We came with the little our hands could afford to identify with the school administrations and the students. It is all about sanitary materials that include garbage drums. We want our students to get used to putting refuse into them on their respective campuses, Mr. Goodin emphasized as each of the recipients clapped with joyfulness for the items they received.
The aim of the organization, among other things, he said is to support learning institutions and needy students in the district to achieve their potential.
Meanwhile, each of the principals that benefitted from the gesture expressed gratitude to FOCS founder, Professor Christopher Swaray, the advisor, Richard Howard, and the entire leadership for what they described as their “timely intervention with items they were especially in need of.”
