As part of its efforts to enhance the learning of students in Montserrado Electoral District #12, the “Friends of Dr. George Beyan Samah” over the weekend distributed sets of modern desktop computers and printers to six schools in the district.
The Founder of “Friends of Dr. George Beyan Samah,” George B. Samah, described the distribution of computers as the friendship’s way of indentifying with the six schools and to also outline the friendship’s interest in the improvement of quality education in the district.
Dr. Samah took the opportunity to call on administrators of the schools to use the items for the intended purposes.
The schools are the Bishop Tue Institute in the JJY Community; the Wells Hairston Institute in Chicken Soup Factory; the St. Philips Ecumenical High School; and the Special Project High School on Somalia Drive.
Others are the Haja Ma-Musu High School; and the Liberia Christian College High School, while the Richard C. Hunter High School received a cash donation of L$40,000 to underwrite students’ WAEC fees for this year.
“As we endeavor to work with schools within our district, we will not rest until the education sector is improved across the country. We will work with institutions collectively and will also make sure to bring international donors to help our school system,” Samah assured.
The friendship also presented to the Gardnersville Community Clinic a carton containing laboratory related equipment and assorted medicines to the Officer-in-Charge, Vivian J. Kpeh.
Madam Kpeh, on behalf of the staff, thanked the friendship for the donation, and promised to use the equipment, including microscopes she said the clinic lacked, for their intended purposes.
The Gardnerville Community Clinic is one of the oldest government owned health care centers in the township. It attends to over 150 patients daily, according to Madam Kpeh.
The Vice Principal for Administration of Well Hairston Institute, Siaka Mohammed Gaytawah, thanked the leadership of the friendship for the donation to his school, adding that it will help ease some of the difficulties faced by the institute.
Meanwhile, Dr. Samah has encouraged Liberians of voting age to register during the upcoming voter registration exercise slated for February 1 to March 7.
