HLF Puts Ceilings Up

The Board of Directors of Help Liberia Foundation Community School in Buchanan has placed ceilings in the auditorium of the school, as well as two other classrooms.

Mats were placed there long time ago, but since they spoiled, the place had been open, with the students feeling the heat when the sun is hot. The placement of the ceilings in the auditorium and the two classrooms means the students have been liberated from the heat that usually directly came down from the zinc. This is a great relief, although there are other classes in which ceilings have not been placed.

Funds for the purchase and placements of the ceilings came from our sponsors in Sweden, through Lena Anders. We are grateful to all of our friends and sponsors who continue to help the school in Buchanan.

Both of them – a boy and a girl – died last month. The girl, ten years old, was called Naomi Karr, while the boy, 13 years old, was called Stanley Taylor.

They both died from malaria, and they have been buried.

Our condolences go to the families of the two kids.

Greetings and Encouragement to All

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!

HLF School Repairs Desks for Kids

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.
