----Provides preventive materials to Churches
A U.S.-based charitable foundation, the Deacon Telee Brown Giving Back Foundation (TGBF), has donated hundreds of covid-19 materials to four (4) churches in Montserrado and Bomi Counties.
The donation which included 1000 nose masks and 96 face shields, comes at a crucial time when the Government is struggling to solicit funds to fight the disease.
It may be recalled that in recent days the Executive submitted a bill to the Legislature seeking the approval of some millions of dollars to combat the new variant of COVID-19.
Those who benefited from the gesture include the EL-SHADDAI Outreach International Ministries located on the Barnesville Road; Destiny Tabernacle in Lower Johnsonville; Refuge Baptist Church and the Klay Apostolic Church in Bomi County, among others.
Making the donations on behalf of TGBF’s Executive Director, Deacon Reverend Telee Brown, Liberian female Journalist, Amanda Yarsiah Sali, said Deacon Brown deemed it necessary to lend his support to the laudable efforts of the government to cushion the unsettling effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on many families in the country.
She said: “We are distributing these items today to identify with you (churches). And as we are also praying, we believe that we will overcome this challenge sooner.”
According to her, the initiative is in continuation of the gesture of Deacon Brown to ensure his people are well-safe.
Journalist Sali said, “The donation came about after I suggested one of my colleagues in the United States of America, Deacon Rev. Deacon Telee Brown, telling him that since you are a humanitarian, it is necessary that you donate to the people of Liberia and is a kind-hearted person, he bought my idea and we were able to secure 1000 pieces of face mask and 96 pieces of the face shield. So, we decided that those items be distributed to four churches in Montserrado and Bomi Counties.”
She called on goodwill people to emulate the example of the TGBF to contribute to the fight against the pandemic.
While taking delivery of the items, the beneficiaries maintained that the church would continue to render spiritual support to the government and the people to ensure that the situation in Liberia does not explode or become intractable.
“Our prayer is that God will continue to bless Deacon Brown and the Giving Back Foundation, the organization that has been helping us in so many ways,” the beneficiaries said.
They further explained that Deacon Brown has been in the vanguard of identifying with his people back home and his donation will help us in the fight against covid-19.
