Liberian orphans call for help

The proprietor of a Liberian orphanage is calling on philanthropist organizations to come to its aid.

William Garblah who runs the Williams and Garblah Orphanage Home in Charlie Town in Grand Bassa County said as the number of coronavirus cases continue to go up in Liberia, he is finding it very challenging to meet the needs of the over 68 orphans at the home.

He asserted that the orphanage has received some help from the management of the Liberia Agricultural Company (LAC) but he is calling on other well-meaning Liberians and local and international humanitarian establishments to buttress that help.

The orphanage, he noted, is struggling to provide at least three meals a day for the orphans and added that they are in desperate need of food, clothing, medication, educational materials, Covid-19 materials and additional dormitories.

Garblah expressed fear that without help the orphans will starve and that they could be overcome by sickness.

He also noted that the school at the orphanage is the only one providing the educational needs of students from over five clans in the district.
