One of the main sponsors of Help Liberia Foundation Community School, David Turner, who is a British citizen, has given Christmas presents to the kids he sponsors in our school.
David, a humanitarian living in the United Kingdom, is a committed sponsor of the school. At present, he is sponsoring four kids in our school and he has been doing this for seven years – that is, since 2007. When a child reaches grade 6 and graduates from the school, David selects a new child to complete the number to four.
Every year, besides paying his sponsored children’s school fees, David sends extra funds to the school to help with its operation. He also sends extra money for the kids’ school supplies, Christmas gifts and provisions and for other purposes.
The four children he currently supports are Jomo Peters, Blessing Bah, Ruth Roberts and Samuel James.
A few weeks ago, David sent some money to cover the kids’ whole-year tuition and to do some purchasing for them. As usual, there were extra funds to help with the school’s operational expenses.
So, the school took the kids to the market place in Buchanan and did some shopping for them. Items bought for each kid included food, shoes, belt, book bag, copy books, pens, clothes, washing soap, bath soap, toothpaste and other items.
The mother of one of the kids, Rebecca James, went with us during the purchasing. At the end, she expressed gratitude to David through the school and wrote a thank-you letter to David, which has already been sent to him.
We extend our heartfelt appreciation to David for his continuous support to the school and the kids. We thank him especially for putting smiles on the faces of these kids and their parents during this Christmas season.
We wish David and his family Merry Christmas and a prosperous 2014!
