Liberia: Crusaders for Peace Identifies With Disabled, Maternity Hospital

The Crusader for Peace, one of Liberia's peace promoters in the country has identified with several needy persons in the country. Crusaders for peace recently distributed over several bags of rice and L$35,000.00 to the Group of 77 on Newport Street, Monrovia and the Liberia-Japanese Friendship Maternity Hospital at the John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital in Sinkor.

Presenting the items to the two groups, Madam Julie Endee, Executive Director of the Crusaders for Peace said the gesture was her organization's own way of identifying with the vulnerable groups during the Christmas festival.

Madam Endee said Crusaders for Peace has no income to undertake such worthy venture but saw the need to do so as a means of remembering people who have no other means of easily fending for themselves because of the disadvantage in their lives.

She then admonished mothers and children at the hospital and the disabled to remain strong and cheer up in the season as there were people in the society who still remember them and recognize their plights.

Receiving the items on behalf of the hospital, Dr. Demenia Gbarbea-Karne lauded the Crusaders for Peace for the kind gesture and promised that the relief items will reach the needy at the hospital. Mr. James Sumo on behalf of the Group of 77 praised the Crusade for Peace for identifying with them and promised to distribute the items as intended.
