The Trust Humanity Liberia Incorporated (THL) recently launched an educative fund drive to support some 90 kids who lost their parents during the deadly Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) that attacked the country in 2014 and 2015 respectively.
The fund drive focuses on children 3-16 years of age. It is intended to educate and make children productive in society.
David Sunday Mulbah, THL’s Program Director, told the Daily Observer in a recent interview that the primary objective is to focus on those children who lost their parents to the Ebola virus, because they deserve an education and the death of their parents has left them with no hope for the future.
“Giving hope to those kids is the primary concern of THL, because we believe that this will make the orphans smile again,” Mulbah said.
Mulbah said the orphans do not have money and need someone’s help to acquire an education.
He said the program is attending to the educational, as well as clothing and feeding needs, of Ebola orphans both in Bong and Montserrado counties.
Mulbah said though his organization lacks the proper financial strength, it has the passion needed to improve the lives of the orphans and take care of their health needs.
“We don’t have enough money to take care of those children. This is the reason we launched this fund drive, to raise money for their support. We are, therefore, calling on all well-meaning Liberians to come and support the kids,” Mr. Mulbah declared.
The organization was founded during the height of the Ebola outbreak in Liberia. Following the outbreak, many children lost their parents and were left homeless.
David Sunday Mulbah is the Founder, CEO and Physician Assistant Certified at Omega Community Clinic, Paynesville; Physician Assistant at Doctors Without Borders/ Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), West Africa Regional Director at Wise Intentional Leadership Development (WILD), Former Physician Assistant Certified (PAC) at Doctors Without Borders/ Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), Co-Founder/CEO at Trust Humanity Liberia Inc.; and Former student Physician Assistant at Firestone Medical Health Center.
Trust Humanity Liberia is a not-for-profit organization (NGO). It’s aim is to implement projects that will enhance facts surrounding the condition of Ebola orphans, while seeking help for vulnerable children.
The program also seeks training assistance, which would provide opportunities and career development for kids and other vulnerable groups in the country.
