November 9, 2016 By Hassan Gbassay Koroma

Louie Taumbas, a humanitarian and communist Orthodox sponsor, over the weekend paid a visit to Sierra Leone to observe developmental project activities of the Orthodox Mission in the country.

The philanthropist visited the Orthodox Mission project site at Waterloo in the Western Rural District, where he held church service with members of the mission and over one hundred school children attending the Orthodox school.

Speaking after the inspection of the project sites, including an orphanage home, health fertility and secondary school, Taumbas expressed satisfaction and lauded Reverend Father Themi, the man in charge of the Sierra Leone Orthodox Mission, for properly utilizing the mission’s funds for the right purpose.

He thanked the government and people of Sierra Leone for embracing the Orthodox Mission, stating that the mission was a true Christian religious faith that has been in existence for decades, although it was only introduced in Sierra Leone in 2008.

He said the mission was also complementing the government’s effort by supporting the less privilege and needy with good education and improve standard of living.
