‘Together for Sierra Leone’ reaches out to a community in grief
Smiles and relief gripped the Susan’s Bay Community on Tuesday, 27th April, 2021, marking independence celebration.
Community people could not hide their appreciation and love for “Together for Sierra Leone”, a UK based Charity, pioneered by well-meaning Sierra Leoneans who grew up and acquired their education in the UK.
Esther Gadafi, a pregnant young beneficiary thanked God and “Together for Sierra Leone”, for a remarkable and joyful day. “I thank you and thank God for this day; you made my day”, she said.
Esther further highlighted community challenges she was facing such as shelter and bed bugs.
Middle aged Mariatu Kanu, also expressed gratification for the Charity for coming in at the most appropriate time.
“You could not have come at a better time”, said Mariatu. “I am happy and thank God for what you have done for me”, she said.
Addressing beneficiaries, Councilor Madinatu Kamara of Ward 377 admonished the community to be patient, adding that not everyone could be reached at once. She assured those who might be left out that their turn would come someday. “Not everybody can be reached today”, she said, and thanked TFSL for the kind gesture.
Chief Pa Alimamy Kamara II also registered his appreciation to TFSL and called on them to do more, and assured that other stakeholders who were absent would be informed in due course.
The inspiration to form the Charity was born from the passion of Ms Jatu Mansaray and Femilia Mansaray, who were moved by the scale of suffering they saw during their separate visits to their country in 2019. They shared their experiences with their sisterTheresa, and came to the conviction that they should pay back to their hiome country, following the footsteps of their parents Mr Femi Mansaray, former Deputy Minister of Public and Political Affairs and Mrs Sheriffatu Mansaray.
The items shared to the community included cooking ingredients, provisions, toiletries, and clothing.
Mrs Sheriffatu disclosed that her children intended to establish an orphanage in the future.
