MONROVIA-A Liberian humanitarian based in the United States has held a one-day children feeding program near Monrovia.

Jamesetta Woods, popularly known by her peers as Nancy Kulah speaking in an exclusive interview last week with this paper said she was very happy to be back home to give to society.

Nancy, as she is widely known in Liberia said her passion to cater for children and give back to society started as far back during her early childhood life in Liberia before the Liberian civil wars.

“I can remember that coming up as a child, our father (Bishop Arthur F. Kulah) used to love children from all over and you could see our yard packed with children and so I said to myself, if I grow up, I will help many children too,” Madam Woods said.

Bishop Arthur F. Kulah is a former Bishop of the Liberia Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church in Liberia who served the LAC/UMC as bishop during the heat of the Liberian civil crisis and was later replaced by former Methodist Bishop Rev. Dr. John G. Innis after successfully ending his decades of tenure.

She explained that after remembering her vow to serve humanity at a tender age, she held herself accountable for working for the children of Liberia.

It was from that background that she started saving in the US to fulfill her promise which was finally launched in the Brewerville, Mango Town-YED Community on January 14, 2023

The program brought together hundreds of children and the elderly as well as other community residents who graced the ceremony.

According to Madam Woods, the program was made possible through the help of God first and friends in the United States who have agreed to support her dream of giving back to society through humanitarian gestures and other services.

The Children of God Ministry, Liberia Feeding Program was later praised by many parents, the elderly and other community residents who turned out to grace the program by sending their kids and physical presence as one of the best they have witnessed over the years due to the manner in which it was organized.

They thanked Madam Woods and her friends back in the US for the initiative and hoped that more rewarding ones will come in the years ahead.

“We want to take this time to thank you and all those who helped in bringing smiles on the faces of our children as part of the festive season and New Year Celebrations and hope that the next time you come here, it will be bigger and rewarding than what we have seen and witnessed here today,” a parent remarked on behalf of parents in the community.

Meanwhile, the vision bearer of the initiative said she was amazed and overwhelmed by the turnout of the children noting that she did not expect a such a number of children and has now vowed to go all out to scout for more opportunities for children in Liberia.

The team is therefore expected to leave Monrovia this Friday, January 20, 2023 for upper Bong County in Gonwoan, near the Liberian-Guniea border in continuation of her humanitarian gesture.

She disclosed that in Bong County, she is expected to present book bags and copybooks to less fortunate children as her way of helping to encourage the beneficiaries while at the same time easing financial burdens on their parents during these difficult times in Liberia.
