A Montserrado County District#3 representative hopeful has identified with the nine occupants of a house that was recently gutted by fire in the Black ‘C’ Ballah Creek Community, Paynesville City outside of Monrovia.
Mr. Ceebee Barshall, proprietor of the David G. Barshall School in Paynesville, last week presented a truckload of sand and 10 bags of cement to be shared among the victims to enable them to reconstruct their destroyed houses.
Shortly after the incident occurred, Mr. Barshall presented four bags of 25kg rice and the amount of L$4,000 to the victims.
Samuel Jackson, Chairman for Partners of Barshall, who represented Mr. Barshall at the brief presentation, told the victims that the donation was Barshall’s way of identifying with residents of the area, especially those hit by tragedies.
Jackson recalled how over the years Mr. Barshall has made numerous interventions, not only to residents of the district but also those of other parts of Montserrado County. He said one of the major problems confronting District #3 is the lack of someone who would provide the needed leadership to drive the aspirations of the residents.
Stephen Peter, owner of the gutted house who received the items on behalf of the victims, praised Barshall for his ‘timely contribution’ to the affected families.
“As you have remembered us during our trouble, let God the Almighty remember you in every aspect of your life,” Mr. Peter told Barshall.
