In the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic in the country, Bishop Nimely Jacobkly Donyen in partnership with Compassion for Life has just given 110 25kg bags of rice to the Cheerful Givers High School (CGHS)’ Teachers and the congregation of the Independent Catholic Church of Liberia (ICCL).
Speaking prior to the distribution of the rice in the Cathedral of the Independent Catholic Church of Liberia (ICCL), in the Red Hill Community Lower Johnsonville, Bishop Nimely Jacobkly Donyen disclosed that the donation is in continuation of his partnership’s support to the teachers and the ICCL’s Congregation saying that he is delighted because his partners are still assisting people in the country despite the economic constraint being posed by the pandemic worldwide.
He then lauded God for providing some of the basic needs of the people through the Compassion for Life noting that two weeks ago his partners provided 300 bags of rice to several Communities in the Township of Johnsonville adding that prior to that donation, the CGHS Family also received 104 bags of rice from them.
According to him, the CGHS Family got 100 bags of rice in April and that they were again a proud beneficiaries of 110 bags of rice including the membership of the ICCL saying that owing to the difficulties people are facing due to the COVID-19 outbreak the Compassion for Life is fulfilling its promise to help the staffs of CGHS on a monthly basis.
“The staffs of the CGHS were benefiting from rice and stipends to pay their rents and buy other necessities for their families,” he stated.
He further explained that since April to date, the donors have given the total of 604 bags of 25kg rice and more than 600 faucet buckets including cartons of chloride and tide soap to the residents of the Johnsonville Township as well as other communities in the District # 2 Montserrado County.
The Bishop then invoked God’s blessing upon the American humanitarian group for doing what he referred to as marvelous work geared toward helping people who are in need and asked God to send His healing power upon those who are infected with the virus and also protect the health workers.
The Clergyman received several commendations from the people and among them was, Chief Secret Tumoe, Clan Chief, Seio District, Sinoe County said that he was glad and impressed with the networking that the Bishop established between him and his American Partners that are reducing some of the hardships faced by the down-trodden masses.
“I brought this goat to you on behalf of my family as a token of appreciation for the good work that you have been doing for the people by lobbying for those things that they need to better their lives,” he added.
He indicated that even though he is living in the southern part of the country, he has been following the Bishop’s humanitarian activities with keen interest that has to do with the provision of safe drinking water, construction of market buildings as well as the empowerment of market women through micro loan and the running of Cheerful Givers High School (CGHS) which is helping the children of the underprivileged in the communities.
Another person who commended the Bishop’s relentless philanthropic gestures was Elder Nicholas G. Doe who stressed that the Bishop is doing exceptional things for residents of District # 2 in Montserrado County and urged him to remain focused and forget about those who are bent on politicizing his activities.
“He is carrying out charity service for needy people in the society, so detractors should desist from impeding the important service as the water project which the people are deprived of. If you cannot help the people, do not hurt them,” he warned.
