Jeety feeds 4,800 On Independence Day Featured

Renowned Indian Businessman and Philanthropist, Dr. Upjit Singh Sachdeva, commonly known as “Jeety” fed 4,800 underprivileged population across Montserrado and Margibi Counties including the infamous Monrovia Central Prison during Liberia’s 175th Independence Day Celebration on Tuesday, July 26, 2022.


In presenting the consignment of food at the Monrovia Center Prison also referred to as South Beach, Jeety said his gesture is in line with the scriptures that the reward for the work a man does is in heaven.

Jeety noted that most business men flourish in their business due to the charity, stressing that whatever charity work they do their reward is in heaven.

He urged all business men in and around the world to give because of the reward.

He thanked the Bureau of Corrections via its Superintendent Varney Luke for all the support and corporation.

Jeety recalled that, "Few days ago, I was in Kakata Prison of which it was their encouragement for us to start a program here."

"The inmates need to rejoice," the former Honorary Consul General of India to Liberia, among other things, added.

Receiving the items, the Prison Superintendent, Varney Luke, thanked Jeety for his continuous support.

"Today is another special day for me. The President of the Republic of Liberia has given clemency for few of my inmates. It is so overwhelming," Supt. Luke stated.

Supt. Luke recalled that few days ago, the prison was hit with power shortages and as a result, their pumps got damaged and when called upon Jeety, he immediately solved the problem.

He said that he was shocked when he heard the news of Jeety visiting the inmates with gifts.

Meanwhile, the prominent Indian businessman and philanthropist extended the sharing of food to disadvantaged youths in order for them to not go to bed on an empty stomach as they observed that nation’s Independence.

The gesture was also extended as far as Weala in Margibi as the businessman put smiles on the faces of children.

According to him, the initiative was meant to make the children feel loved and part of society.
