GCC Identifies With Ganta School For The Blind
By S. Kannay Ziamo, LINA Nimba County Correspondent

GANTA, October 5 (LINA) - The Ganta Christian Community (GCC) has donated a consignment of assorted items to the Ganta School for the Blind.

Presenting the items, GCC head Rev. John Bayorgar said the donation, which include rice, oil, and stationery, was the GCC's way of identifying with the school.

Rev. Bayorgar said the items donated were collected from GCC member churches, adding that the gesture was the organization's initial contribution to the school.

He said as Christians, they see giving to the needy as part of their work of reaching out and winning souls for Christ, adding that “our work is not only to preach to people, but to also help people in need.”

He assured the school that GCC will always be available to assist them when the need arises, and revealed that his organization is working on plans to make a bigger donation to the school.

Receiving the items, the Principal of the school, Mrs. Deddeh Robbin, thanked the GCC for the gesture and promised to use the items for the intended purpose.

She disclosed that the school currently lacks many things, including specialized instructional materials, mattresses and clothing for students who live on the campus, as well as food and other essentials.

Meanwhile, Mrs. Robbin is calling on the government and philanthropists to come to the aid of the school, noting that students attending the school are all Liberians who are in desperate need of help.

The Ganta School for the Blind is the only school for the visually challenged living in Nimba County with an enrollment of over 150 students.

The school was established over five years ago by the late husband of Mrs. Deddeh Robbin.

It operates from Kindergarten to the sixth grade.
