Bishop Donyen Gives Again To Dist. 2 Residents

The Bishop of the Independent Catholic of Liberia (ICCL) Bishop Nimely Jarbokly Donyen has resupplied several cartons of tide soap and chloride as well as 250 bags of 25kg rice to several residents of the Township of Johnsonville and other communities.
Speaking at the distribution ceremony in the Independent Catholic Church of Liberia (ICCL)’s Cathedral on Cheerful Givers High School (CGHS) Campus in Lower Johnsonville, Bishop Donyen said they have just completed the distribution 9,000 sachets of tide soap and 1,920 bottles of chloride aimed at resupplying those essential materials to enforce the battle against the virus as residents can no longer afford to buy them.
He named the beneficiaries as the youth groups, 37 communities in the Township of Johnsonville, six Police stations, the various markets within the district, Pepper Wulu Town, Mount Barclay, Jacob Town, Rehab Pipeline, Red Hill Communities and the Christian Communities, just to name a few.
The Bishop then expressed gratitude to the American Non-governmental Organization (NGO) for recognizing the difficult plight of the people which they have been addressing over the years indicating that it is a humanitarian commitment that they are implementing.
According to him, the outbreak of the menace in Liberia has further exacerbated the hardship on people owing to their economic status as the result they do not have money to purchase food and the health related items so his partners have been providing some anti covid-19 preventative materials and food noting that from March 2020 to present, they have distributed 866 bags of 25kg rice to the people of District # 2 in Montserrado County.
The ICCL Clergyman then assured the beneficiaries that the donors are determined to continue doing impactful humanitarian work for them but seriously frowned on those who he intoned have launched what he called a campaign that is geared toward preventing targeted groups from benefiting projects intended for them.
“Compassion for Life brought safe drinking water here for the communities but the people are being denied from benefiting while people are selling the water and the targeted people are still suffering for water on this rocky hill throughout years,” he explained.
Commenting on other projects that was funded by his group but have been demolished, the Bishop named a pavilion that was erected for wayward children, and an annex to the Jacob Town Market and said that the community dwellers are now appealing for latrines which is not a difficult venture for his partnership to undertake but stated that the government has remained mute about the attitude of the people against their projects.
“The manner in which the people are treating our projects looks like they do not appreciate our efforts of helping the government address some of the needs of its people,” he pointed out.
Speaking further, the program initiator boasted that he is not seeking for public office but that he is working for the people who are entrenched in poverty so as to mitigate some of the hardships that they are encountering in their lives.
He also assured the residents of various communities in District # 2, Montserrado County that he is going to lobby for the reconstruction and modernization of all those structures that have been demolished.
Responding to the gesture, the leadership of all the beneficiaries from the communities praised the Bishop and partners for continuously providing for them in time of need.
The leadership commended the Bishop’s effort by presenting him letters of appreciation as a sign of encouragement.
