Youths Donate Farming Tools To Disaster Victims

By Ballah Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, May 6 (LINA) - The Bong Muslim Youth Association has donated assorted farming tools and soap to disaster victims of Yelequelleh and Panta Districts in Bong County.

Presenting the materials Monday to Superintendent Selena Polson-Mappy in Gbarnga, the Muslim youth leader Alieu V. Sheriff said the donation is a result of a need assessment conducted in the affected communities by the group.

He said while the presentation of 100 pieces of hoes and over 14 dozens of laundry soap to persons whose houses were de-roofed by storm may surprise some people, the association took keen interest in other needs of the victims.

In remarks, Superintendent Polson-Mappy thanked the Muslim youths for the donation and called on other youth groups in the county to emulate the good example of the Muslim youths.

“Unlike those who engage in destructive politics, you constructively gathered resources to help our brothers and sisters, an indication that you are true partners to this county, government and its people. The County Administration promises to work with you,” Supt. Polson-Mappy said.

The Bong Muslim Youth Association in 2006/2007, 2009 and 2011 made donations respectively to the Ministry of Agriculture, Liberia Broadcasting System (LBS) and the Gbarnga City Corporation (GCC).

Some villages and towns in Yelequelleh and Panta Districts were recently hit by a heavy storm, leaving scores of homes de-roofed.
