Speaking at the handing over ceremony yesterday in Ward-1, the Executive Director of Multiply Project Sierra Leone, Aaron Willie Tucker, said they have been operating in the country for close to five years, helping the vulnerable and children in need.
He said that as a way of commemorating this year’s African Child Day, they decided to choose the Children’s Ward at Connaught Hospital for the donation.
He disclosed that prior to the donation, he visited the Ward and spoke to Staff Nurse Watta who identified chairs, medical and surgical items as their needs.
It was in that vein, he said, that they made the donation and provided breakfast for all the children admitted in the Ward.
He said his organization was very passionate about children, especially vulnerable ones and those in need; the reason why they have been helping them.
He appealed to other well meaning organizations to reach out to vulnerable Sierra Leonean children, especially those admitted in the Children’s Ward and other hospitals across the country.
He concluded by extending special thanks and appreciation to Dayo Spencer-Walters and Jack Sutcliffe for their support to the organization.
Matron Ruby Williams referred to children as the treasure of any nation, saying anyone who helps them, especially those in need, will surly get a reward from God.
She prayed that God continues to provide for the organization and its Executive Director so that they can further spread out their philanthropy to children in need. She on behalf of the Matron in Charge of the Ward and staff expressed appreciation to Multiply Project Sierra Leone for the timely donation.
Dr. Aiah Lebbie, Pediatric Surgeon in Charge of the Ward, expressed similar sentiments and thanked the organization for the donation, while some parents of the children also expressed gratitude for the kind gesture.
