The Restoration of Educational Advancement Programs (REAP) has donated 100 bags of back to school materials to the Liberia Crusaders for Peace (LCP) to be distributed among students.
The donation was made over the weekend by REAP Acting General Service Officer (GSO), Solomon Wah, who said it was intended to provide support to the less fortunate children in various schools.
He said the donation was sent by the office of Bentol City Mayor, Madam Christine T. Norman, as part of post Ebola reform activities in the country.
He said for several years the REAP has aligned itself with the Government of Liberia to buttress the implementation of the Poverty Reduction Strategy and the United Nations Millennium Development Goals.
According to him, his organization has contributed to the building of a democratically stable Liberian society, characterized by good governance, peace and security.
Items donated were concealed in 100 different bags which contained pens, copybooks, pencils, and crayons among others supplies.
REAP has been operating in Liberia since 2004 where it presence and impart cut across the 15 counties.
Upon receiving the items, Liberia Culture Ambassador Juli Endee thanked REAP for the kind gesture and promised to distribute the items to empower the country’s future leaders.
She promised to distribute some of the items, mainly the back bags to children orphaned by the Ebola virus.
Madam Endee said the donation came in time in that the Golden Image Awards activities would begin in July when this year’s activities will focus on health related issues by appreciating all those who joined Liberia in the fight against the Ebola virus transmission.
She announced that as part of this year’s activities, there will be feeding programs in several communities and she would use that opportunity to distribute the bags to Ebola survivors and orphans.
