On behalf of Help Liberia Foundation Community School, located in Buchanan City, we would like to extend everyone a very profound keep-safe message in the face of the suffering and uncertainties created as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
The virus is ravaging almost every nation on earth. Even our country, Liberia, which drastically suffered Ebola between 2014 and 2015, is having its own share of the virus and its impact. Already, about 75 persons are infected with the virus, and at least six persons have died. And, already, also, our healthcare system is one of the worst in the world. It is virtually non-existent. We are praying for God to have mercy and protect our country because if things go out of hand, too many people will die in our country. It would be worse than Ebola.
While it is true that we are having our own corona-virus problems here, our hearts go out to the countries in Europe, especially countries in which our sponsors and friends are, specifically Sweden and the UK. May God protect you all and save you from this nightmare.
Let’s remember one another in prayers during these difficult times, as we are convinced that God is a merciful, gracious, and prayer-answering God. May God heal our world of this virus!
Help Liberia Foundation Community School has completed the repairs of a number of desks for the kids to use. The repair of the desks was based on the facts that many of the desks had either spoiled or gotten old in the midst of the increment in student enrollment.
Twenty-five desks were repaired in all, and the children are now properly sitting.
At the end of the First Semester of 2019/2020 school year, Help Liberia Foundation Community School in Buchanan promoted some students to new classes.
The students, six in all, were promoted to various classes based on their impressive performances in their previous classes. Those promoted included one girl and five boys, and their names, along with their promotional arrangements, are as follows:
1. Surprise Kangar, promoted from 3rd grade to 4th grade
2. James Seah, promoted from 3rd grade to 4th grade
3. Anthony Teah, promoted from 2nd grade to 3rd grade
4. Emmanel Karr, promoted from 1st grade to 2nd grade
5. Agnis Sieh, promoted from ABC to Kindergarten One (K-1)
6. Harrison Roberts, promoted from ABC to Kindergarten One (K-1)
We are proud of the kids and wish them well in their new classes. We are also grateful to all those who are helping us to run the school, especially our friends in Sweden, headed by Lena Thorne Marner and Anders Marner.
Members of the newly constituted HLF Board of Directors recently visited the school in Buchanan, meeting with both staffers and students.

The reception was warm, the atmosphere was friendly, and the visit was rewarding. The Board members interacted with the kids, with Mrs. Monica Sackie and Mr. Lincoln Blojay admonishing them about the importance of education and advising them to be studious, determined, and respectful.
After interacting with the students, the Board members met with the staff, discussing the future of the school, including both short-term, medium term and long-term plans and goals.
Someone once said, “Any good teacher knows how important it is to connect with students and understand their problems.”
In fulfillment of this saying, our dedicated teachers at Help Liberia Foundation Community School in Buchanan City do their best to interact with the lovely children attending the school. They spend time understanding the students and helping them with their problems. We are proud of them and thankful to them for their sacrificial services.
We are also grateful to our Swedish friends and supporters who are helping with teachers’ salary payment, through the effort of Lena Thorne Marner and Anders Marner, an exercise that is helping the teachers to be more committed.
