Liberia: Marmondeh Identifies With Orphanage Home

A local humanitarian group, Marmondeh has presented several bags of rice, cartoons of fish and other assorted food items to the Child Survival Orphanage Home along the Monrovia-Kakata highway.

Presenting the items, Marmondeh's Financial Secretary, Madam Fatu Chenoweth said the donation was her organization's way of identifying with the less fortunate.

She said at the beginning of each year, Marmondeh usually embarks on humanitarian campaign to reach out to the underprivileged in Liberia.

Madam Chenoweth said as Liberians, it is important to give to the needy especially "when God blesses you; this is why Marmondeh decided to always reach out to our brothers and sisters who are in need of assistance."

According to her, the items were bought through the contributions of Marmondeh's members.

Madam Chenoweth called on the administration of the orphanage home to use the items for the intended purpose.

Receiving the items, the Founder and Director of Child Survival Orphanage Home commended Marmondeh for the gesture.

Mr. Othello Findley said the donation came at the time his institution was running out of food, adding "we highly appreciate this donation."

He disclosed that his institution is finding it difficult to get the needed support to cater to all of the orphans.

Mr. Findley called on other humanitarian organizations to emulate the example of Marmondeh.
