Victor Kanu, Child Support and Family Care Programme Assistant
The CRC staff noticed that the children coming to Mercy Hospital for the monthly nutrition clinic were in need of clothes and other essentials. The staff decided to complement Mercy Hospital’s work by providing toiletries and clothing for these vulnerable children. Eighty children identified by Mercy Hospital as especially needy were provided with clothing, toilet soap and toothpaste. Before the distribution, the director prayed for the mothers and children. She told them about the work the CRC does, and the number of lives they are touching in Bo, Kenema, Kono, Freetown, Moyamba, and other communities.
The mothers were very happy to receive the gifts. “I am very grateful to CRC for these gifts. It is very difficult to have food, much more getting clothes, ” one mother told the staff. “Thank you very much, especially for these toiletries. You have put smiles on our faces," another mother said. "We appreciate you greatly. My child now has Christmas clothes."
“Today is a big day for me. I have not only received food for my child, but also toiletries and clothes. Thank you God. Thank you CRC. I pray that God give you more money to do more. May God bless your own families.”
