Maxson Kpakio, Founder/CEO of Wales Liberia Connect-UK recently had an accident that left three cars damaged along 72nd junction.
With no injury and a huge bill of more than $2,000 USD for damages that were caused as a result of losing control and slamming into a car ahead of him, which also slammed into a car ahead of it, Max, also known as Max Mixer, a popular radio broadcaster of Radio LIB and others walked out of the accident without a scratch.
Deep within, Max was sympathetic for what had occurred and pleaded with his friends on social media to help with finances to repair the damaged cars in time for Christmas.
“Despite all the odds, nothing is stopping me from reaching out and living up to my promises. Heading to address CEIO in Central Monrovia with journalist,” he posted on Facebook days after the accident.
Despite what happened Max prayed that it would not affect his plan to bring a merry Christmas to the less fortunate that would put smiles on their faces. In collaboration with Mr. Fidel Budy, Secretary General of the Union of Liberian Organizations -UK and under the leadership of Evelyn Duke Desheild, ‘his prayers were answered,’ he says.
“We have donated to three orphanages, including Love the Child Orphanage, Christian Orphanage and an agricultural program called Divine Ministry International. During the Christmas, we donated children’s clothes, food, toys and accessories to Suniwien Health Center, Redemption Hospital, New Georgia
Health Center, and Foya Health Center,” Max said.
Other items handed out included blankets, sanitary pads, books as well as children’s games. Some were given to very poor families and sick children.
Meanwhile, during their visit to Redemption Hospital which has a high number of child admissions, Max and his group met a boy who was reported to have been abandoned by his mother.
“This little boy, we were told, was abandoned by his mother and sick at the hospital. Please, my people, let’s join to help this child. Please use your professional contacts especially in the medical field to help this child,” he pleaded on Facebook recently.
Apart from giving this Christmas, Max, whose life was spared to share this testimony, says he has many reasons to be grateful. While his kindness and gesture of Christmas spirit was well received, so was his SOS call out for the child who was abandoned at the Redemption Hospital.
