Liberians Called to Support the Most Vulnerable


Professor Raymond Godfrey has called on Liberians to invest in the most vulnerable about the country by supporting non-governmental organizations like Charity Liberia.
Speaking yesterday at the International Humanitarian Day celebrations held at the Brewerville City Hall, Godfrey appealed to Liberians everywhere to provide philanthropic assistance as an act of love for others.
He said their material and other support must be considered as personal investment, based on deeply felt commitment to help other Liberians who lack any kind of support.
He reminded Liberians, quoting from the Holy Bible (Leviticus 19: 5) when God instructed the Israelites, “When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not reap to the very edges of your field, or gather the gleanings of your harvest.
“You shall not strip your vineyard bare or gather the fallen grapes of your vineyard; you shall leave them for the poor and alien…”
“We must learn to give back to our community,” Godfrey said.
He appealed to all individuals, public and private organizations, government entities, future leaders and others to support Charity Liberia in its effort to assist the Liberian poor.
He said: “Even though solicitation is difficult; solicitation is a delicate presentation of an opportunity to invest material assets in a way that brings mostly tangible rewards and a very real sense of fulfillment.
“It is a high from of seeking investments or asking for assistance to help unfortunate people,” Godfrey indicated.
He challenged students, parents, teachers, principals, corporations, foundations, businesses and community leaders to support the efforts of Charity Liberia.
“You can send them non-perishable foods, like cans of tomatoes, beans, sardines, rice, trousers, shirts, blouses, skirts, among others, as goodwill gestures to buttress Charity Liberia’s humanitarian efforts. He also hoped that new channels of support would flow with added resources to nurture and revitalize the organization’s capacity to see that the needs are met.
Present at the program were Brewerville City Mayor George Curtis, representatives of several organizations and Augustus Leman, coordinator of Charity Liberia Margibi County chapter.
