Less than eight months after a four-person team visited Help Liberia Foundation Community School in Buchanan in March of this year, three persons returned last week to see the school and the children attending it.
Those visiting the school were Lena and her husband Anders, who were also here in March, and Lena’s brother, P-O. They arrived in Monrovia on Tuesday, October 29, 2013, and arrived in Buchanan on Wednesday, October 30, and stayed there from October 30 to November 1.
During their visit, they brought several, various gifts for the kids. The gifts included sets of jerseys for the boys and the girls, football boots, physical education sneakers, pencils, pens, judo clothes, football, football pump, candies, a puzzle map about Sweden, books about Swedish animals, chalk, book bags, and many others.
Upon their arrival, the school had a welcome program in their honor. During the program, each visitor expressed their happiness to be in Liberia, especially with the kids, thanking Paul Harry and the staff for doing their best to keep the school running and to help the kids.
It is interesting to note that Lena and Anders came to the school wearing the African clothes given them during the March visit, which the kids, the staff and the parents around appreciated.
At the welcome program, also, Anders, using one of the animal books he brought, showed the kids and the staff some animals found in Sweden, which the kids enjoyed looking at.
The guests’ visit at the school was characterized by various activities, indoor programs, gift presentations, judo training, HLF future site visitation, and so forth.
Many of these activities will be written about in individual articles and posted on the website over the next two weeks. Photos will accompany them.
