So today we are here to identify with this orphanage home and to also fellowship with the orphans because most of them do not really know what is Christmas.

As a team, we have decided to spend a day with them (orphans), listen to their experience. Some of our friends are braiding and cutting their hair. We brought few gifts for them which of course, the cost does not matter. We want to use this medium to also express our thanks and appreciation to the Lone Star cell family for sponsoring this club and to also encourage Liberians to see the essence of Christmas and identify with people in need" She amongst other things stated.
