At the presentation ceremony witnessed by cross section of community leaders within the district, Lawmaker Fallah said his initiative was his own way of assisting his people during this health crisis.
Unlike the previous donation exercises, Lawmaker Fallah, who represents his district in the House of Representatives on the ticket of the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change(CDC), stressed that the donation was this time around targeting key people and specific sectors within the district.
“Today, we are doing it differently with priority to the religious community, the teachers, health care workers, security personnel, the disabled and the orphans, including some staffs of the Paynesville City Corporation (PCC) and many others,” he added.
He told the gathering that during such crisis, it is the religious leaders, the country and people will rely on to intercede for them, and therefore, identifying with them is very paramount.
Rep. Fallah pointed out that it is equally important to share with the pastors, imams and teachers as well as health care workers who contribute greatly to society and at this COVID-19 crisis are no longer doing active work as a result of the social distancing and huge gathering protocols among others.
At the same time, Rep. Fallah encouraged his people to continue to abide by all the health regulations in order to remain safe as currently the district is yet to confirm a COVID-19 positive case.
The beneficiaries, in a happy mood, appreciated their lawmaker for always assisting them, especially when the need arises.
They assured their leader that they will abide by all the health protocols for the benefit of themselves and the society at large. At the end of the exercise and due to priority given, pastors from the Christian faith walked away with three hundred bags of 25 kg rice, 300,000 Liberian Dollars, tie soap, mineral water and many others, while Imams from the Muslims faith also walked away with 150 bags of 25 kg rice, 150,000 Liberian Dollars, water and tie soap among others.
