Plan Liberia makes orphans smile

By Moses O. Browne, Jr.,                 Moses Owen Browne

 

92 orphans including 528 beneficiaries in 16 communities of Bomi County’s 3 districts received rice, oil, sanitary kits, used clothes and other assorted materials.

“This is one major way of identifying and helping to protect our children especially those who have lost fathers, mothers and families to the deadly Ebola virus” Alphan Kabba says.

According to Plan Liberia Bomi Program Unit Manager Alphan Kappa, this is Plan’s way of showing humanitarian concern to those affected by Ebola particularly, orphans.

In its bid to help Liberians kick this deadly virus out of Liberia, and save thousands of lives, Plan International Liberia took truck load of rice, oil, preventive materials and assorted items to two of Liberia’s fifteen counties in Lofa and Bomi.

Plan distributed food items to 92 orphaned children in Bomi County. This included 176 x 25kg bags of rice, 184 bottles of cooking oil, 92 sachets of salt. Clothes and shoes were distributed to 60 orphaned.

Meanwhile, Plan Liberia is planning to establish alternative care centers for children affected by Ebola in line with the Liberian Government policy and procedures.

Plan will establish six interim care centers in Bomi, Nimba and Lofa Counties respectively for children who have been affected and discharged or who lost their parents as a result of the Ebola Virus and are now vulnerable with no care. This will be supported through the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare who will manage the six centers.

The Interim care centers will provide temporary care, support and protection to those vulnerable children.
