Senator Sheriff Donates To J.F.K, Others
By Ballah M. Kollie

MONROVIA, February 15 (LINA) – Montserrado County Senator Geraldine Doe Sheriff Tuesday touched the lives of the sick, handicapped, less fortunate and aided institutions by donating items including toiletries, detergents and food.

Beneficiaries included the Handicap Station in Vai Town on the Bushrod Island, the John F. Kennedy (JFK) Hospital in Sinkor, the Monrovia Central Prison, TB Annex and the Police Academy.

The exercise was in observance of the Montserrado Senator’s 50th birth anniversary.

During the presentations, Senator Sheriff told recipients that the gesture was her way of sharing her 50th birthday with the people she represents.

She described the donation as little, especially in the face of the level of challenges facing inmates, the less fortunate and sick people in hospitals.

“When you consider the human implication and the need to impact the lives of our targeted population, it will be unfair to attach cash value to the donation,” she said.

In remarks, JFK Chief Administrator Dr. Winnie Scott-McDonald described the gesture as the entity’s first Valentine gift, and lauded Senator Sheriff for thinking about the nation’s referral hospital as an entity having needs despite its status in the country.

According to her, the donation will go a long way in addressing some needs of patients at the facility, and promised to use them solely for patients.

Earlier, representatives of women groups from across Montserrado County gathered at the Capitol Building and presented gifts in appreciation of Senator Sheriff’s contributions to them.

According to the women, the senator’s financial assistance and loan program has raised them from 'zero to hero' with their businesses increasing, thus enabling helping them to support their respective homes.
