It is been over two years now since the Ebola epidemic story has been put to rest in Liberia and later Sierra Leone and Guinea. Liberia final declaration of being Ebola free was on 14 January 2016 and since then the country has not had any history of new occurrence. The Country recorded the highest number of death rate during Ebola war; it was so terrible and deathly since we were fighting an invisible enemy. The Ebola has gone but it left a huge scare that is so difficult to recover.
I according to the IRIN news, “more than 5,900 Liberian children lost one or both parents to Ebola. Some are with a surviving parent, others found loving homes with friends or relatives, but many have been left orphaned on the streets or are finding it tough to adapt to new lives with host families”. The above number gave account of kids who parents were taken to the ETU but many more orphans were forgotten since their parents died outside of the ETU and there no record on them.
This epidemic left very huge challenges to the community and the innocence children who are not sure of their future right now. During the Ebola crisis there were so much important placed to these kids but it seem that people are rather forgotten these kids now and that is really putting their future in danger.
We have been left with the last 24 ebola orphans to support but it has been difficult to meet up with their educational and other needs. Since we have not had the funding to continue the support for these kids, we wrote letters to schools we have worked with over the years sponsoring these kids to permit them in school and we were going to make payment at a later date, but it is becoming a challenge for us to do so since we have not been able to organize funding for that.
We have been able to make some payment for just five kids Aaron, Samanue, Matthew, Edwin and Serich out of the 24 children we are sponsoring. Aaron is now in the senior class and he will be sitting for the WASSEC exam this year. WASSCE has just been introduced to Liberia and the cost associated with it is higher than the WAEC that was first administered by Liberia.
The examination council is charging $60.00 per student but schools are charging $75.00 and above. Aaron, has $75.00 outstanding for that payment, he called me two days ago to inform as regard to that. Please give your support to save the future of a child.
Many thanks to all of our donors who have helped to give hope to these kids over the years, we appreciate your love and all efforts you have ever made to save the future of these kids. Please continue to your help to give these kids future life is really challenging for them right now. All the kids we have in Kakata we have not been able to make any payment to their schools and if we cannot make payment, the schools will send them out. Please, you are the only hope that these kids have they need you now more than ever.
Please remember that without your donations and support these will have no future, continue your support and donation so that they can continue their school.
\Thank you again and we appreciate your love and support.
