The donation, which included several bags of rice, gallons of oil and soap, among others, the organization said was a way of honoring one of their beloved friends who was snatched away by the cold hands of death. Giving the overview of the organization, Michael Wreh, said the Like Mind organization was founded on April 8, 2017 as a health and welfare organization. Mr. Wreh said the motto of the organization is “Heart and Hands,” which means caring for one another, sharing love with community dwellers and working together through different ideas and promoting the welfare of its members and communities.
He furthered that the organization currently has 43 members, noting that it has been a very unique organization combining physical health and fitness along with community engagement, charity and supporting the work of each other. Presenting the items on behalf of the organization, Reginald A. Bropleh who is the ‘Most Senior Friend,’ stated that it is often said that there is something within a person that allows them to do things better. The Most Senior Friend said he sees charity on a different prospective, noting that putting smile on the children faces for the Independence Day celebration was one of their way of sharing love.
He pointed out that the organization will hold a leadership meeting to go beyond charity. “As a humanitarian organization, we, as charity group, give to institutions on an annual basis to help support their work. We can promise you that we will get back to you as regular as possible,” Mr. Bropleh asserted. Receiving the items on behalf of the leadership of the Amazing Grace Orphanage, Rev. Edward Diggs appreciated the organization for its contribution, indicating that the donation was timely. "The name like mind, it's my prayer that even 10 percent of Liberians can have Like Mind. I believe that things will get better and move forward," he said.
Rev. Diggs said the leadership least expected anything such as the nation is going through hard times. “When the government brings the children then it’s finished on their part. Imagine feeding 44 children and calling you papa, it means that you need to provide more,” he added.
