Dean, a member of its Ebola Response Committee, expressed appreciation to Street Child of Liberia for effectively organizing the program, and assured the parents of Rotary Club of Monrovia’s interest and support through Street Child of Liberia.“We want your children to go to school,” Dean said, “and that is why we provided support by getting these items for all of you.”Responding, a spokeswoman for the beneficiaries said, “I want God to bless you for this important support to our children.” She promised to follow all the instructions to ensure that Ebola is driven out of Liberia.Present at the program were Street Child’s Program Support Officer, Ms. Lizzie Lake, presently in the country for six months, and Ms. Chloe Dannatt, Street Child’s Program Director, who is visiting Street Child of Liberia.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
