At least 57 kids, described as Ebola survivors, last Wednesday commended a local non-profit organization, Liberian Women and Children Welfare Teenage Mothers Program (LICWETNAPP), for being provided with educational support.

The program was held in Caldwell, outside Monrovia, with each kid receiving a package of school materials, including pens, notebooks, toys, and others.

Executive Director Nancy Stewart Bropleh, who is based in Denmark, said her organization’s support to the most vulnerable group of Liberians is meant to ensure that they find learning more attractive.

“I know how you survived the Ebola,” she said, “and our organization is determined to work with you and support you so that you can focus on your education to become good people to help your parents and your country.”

She said the non-food items donated to the kids were given “to ensure that they don’t lack those necessities that make education attractive to kids.”

Director Bropleh assured the kids that her organization would always be there for them. “Respect and honor your parents and always try to be good children,” she said.

Contributing, the organization’s Country Director, Precious K. Kamara, commended the children for their patience awaiting their gifts, and encouraged them to remain in school and become good citizens.

She also advised them to respect and honor their parents.

The kids performed an Ebola Drama depicting when victims were identified and authorities notified for their pick-up to designated centers where doctors, in white gloves, attended to them, to the excitement of the audience.

Three kids, including Ciatta Baffallay, David Karmo and Leona Davis, performed recitations of numbers 1-10, days of the month and sang songs.

The program climaxed with the delivery of three footballs for soccer and kickball members of the group.
