Pastor Leonard Edloe, Sister Sarah Symon, and members of the New Hope Fellowship Church in Hart Field Virginia, in collaboration with Christ Ambassadors Ministry from Woodbridge, Virginia, United States of America, have donated used clothing, school supplies and toys worth millions of Leones to mudslide victims at the Motomeh Community in Freetown.
It could be recalled that on August 14, 2017 the country experienced twin disasters of flooding and mudslide that claimed the lives of thousands of Sierra Leoneans, including children and women.
Responding to the disaster, many countries, individuals, national and international organisations donated relief items to the government of Sierra Leone and affected persons in Freetown.
Christ Ambassadors Ministry in Woodbridge, Virginia in collaboration with other churches, had previously donated foodstuff and other assorted items worth millions of Leoneans to the disaster survivors.
Last week, the church saw the need to donate other items to the survivors worth millions of Leone.
Distributing the donated items directly to the survivors, Pastor Jonathan Taylor Kamara said they were very happy to help victims of the disaster, especially children, hence they decided to donate not only used clothing but also school materials.
He said what happened in Freetown on August 14 last year was not good to write home about and that it could have happened to anybody.
He prayed for those who lost their lives in the flooding and mudslide disaster rest in peace, and encouraged survivors who lost their relatives and properties to take courage and have faith that it was the will of God.
Chief Alimamy Bubu Conteh of Motomeh Community thanked the delegation and expressed appreciation for the donation.
