Antoinette Tubman Cheshire Home T-Boy Remembered


By Mark Neywon Mengonfia

MONROVIA-A group of Liberians based in the United States under the bender ‘Coffee FC’ has identified with T-Boy, the child whose tongue was cut off and kids at the Antoinette Tubman Cheshire orphanage Home in Sinkor.

The separate donations were made Saturday, February 19, 2022, by the organization’s mobilization chairperson, Abe Cooke.

Making the presentation, Mr. Cooke said what happened to T-Boy can happen to anyone and as citizens of Liberia living in the United States, they saw the need to help with the little they have.

They provided rice, juices, oil, and other eatables for those at the Antoinette Tubman Cheshire orphanage Home.

He placed the cost of the food items at about 900 USD.

As for T-Boy, they presented 300 USD to his mother to help with his upkeep at the ELWA Hospital in Paynesville where he is currently undergoing treatment after that unfortunate situation.

Before the presentation of the cast to the mother of T-boy, she was very careful thinking that the image of her son would have again appeared on social media as was done recently by some unscrupulous individuals who have gone for visiting with them.

According to her, because of the behavior of the people, her son has been sent to a private wall where getting to him has to be done through the authorities of the ELWA hospital.

” People came here and took my son’s photos and put it on Facebook. Some people are even using his image to raise money for themselves” the kid’s mother told the delegation that has gone to do the donation.

When he was asked if the Coffee FC was a football club and why they are not identifying with footballing organizations, he” Coffee FC is not a football club as many think” he said.

He said Coffee FC is a group that was put together by family to help those who are in need.

” The Coffee we drink is what we are referring to and the FC stands for Family Club” he added.

He added that the group has identified with people in the United States of America during times of being in need.

The group has promised to visit Liberia next year (2023) to identify with people in four different counties.

When he was quizzed if their donation and kind ways political motivated, he said” we are a humanitarian organization and we are not into politics.”

The recipients of the donations expressed thanks and appreciation to the group described their kindness as timely.
