Monrovia-Feb-6-TNR: The three-month old motherless twin and their father have received some initial donations in cash and kind from Madam Comfort Mulbah Kamara and the Founder of Ward Fund Organization, Vivia Ward-Worjloh.
These interventions come a few weeks after the mother of the kids, Miss Patience Gaye and her other two bigger children-10 and 13 year old boy and girl died in a tragic fire incident in New Kru Town.
Since the incident, their jobless father, Mustapha Samah alongside other family has consistently pleaded with the national government and humanitarian institutions as well as kindhearted individuals to provide him assistance such as shelter, food for his babies and cash to take care of other important needs.
It can be recalled that early Friday morning, January 12, 2024, at about 1:00 local Liberian time, fire gutted a two-bedroom zinc shack located right at the back of the Samuel Slewion Doe Memorial Institute (SSDMI), opposite the famous Duala Market in the Borough of Krutown, Montserrado County Electoral District #16.
The father of the children disclosed that the actual cause of the fire is yet to be established despite the fact that the nation’s premier power supplier, Liberia Electricity Corporation (LEC) was actively supplying current at the time of the incident.
However, Madam Comfort Mulbah Kamara, the wife of Montserrado County Electoral District #15, Abu Bana Kamara, upon reading the first publication of this incident, visited the family and provided some materials.
Madam “K” as she’s famously called by many, presented baby milk, pampers, clothes, oil, rice, soap and an undisclosed amount of money, terming the gesture as her initial way of providing assistance for the father with his kids.
“When I saw these beautiful kids in the news, tears rolled from eyes but who are we to ask God why this happened. My people, y’all have my deepest sympathy for the deaths of these kids’ mother and the other two children; this is so painful,” she said.
At the same time, Madam Kamara has promised to engage other institutions and individuals about the sad happening and further try in her own way to return to the bereaved family with additional help.
Also, the Founder and Chairperson of the Ward Fund Organization, Madam Vivian Ward-Worjloh through the NGO’s Coordinator Madam Lovina J. Krangar, donated a sum of US$100 to the family for the kids.
Madam Karngar on the instruction of the United States based Liberian and Chair of the institution, made an initial check at the home of the bereaved family to establish, took some photos with the motherless twin for the purpose of authenticating the report and reverted to her boss.
“My Boss came across this human interest story reported by Journalist Blamo N. Toe and developed interest in helping but first, I came here to if the story was really true and of course, it was true and that’s how I told Madam Worjloh and after that, she sent this One Hundred United States Dollars to help the kids,” the NOG’s Liberia Coordinator noted.
According to her, it is the passion of the donor to help in protecting the future of Liberian children who express similar situation of the twin, including rape cases and others.
Madam Karngar added that the organization has over the years provided assistance to hundreds of Liberian children, stressing that it is also buttressing the national government through the provision of education and medication.
These donations were made recently in the Borough of Krutown, where the incident occurred.
In remarks, one of the family members and the Chairperson of the Karpeh Street Community, Mr. Decontee Woto thanked the donors for the interventions, emphasizing that they are the only individuals who have made such denotations since the incident occurred.
