For nearly ten years the Sean Devereux Institutions in Liberia (Devereux FC, SDCEP, SDT, VOS) and other organizations (SDB, Catholic Health Secretariat, Charity Sisters, Mother Patern College, Sr Carman/Buchanan St Peter’s Claver Clinic), ordinary Liberians, and schools have received enormous and essential support from the SDCF UK in form of much-needed materials sent to Liberia on containers. The containers were sent in collaboration with Feed the Children/Global Hearts for Children UK, and local support of Sr Barbara, Catholic Archdiocese, and a team of Liberian volunteers.
Assorted but very useful items included rice, tin food, computers, school materials, agricultural inputs, vocational tools, laundry soap, printers, sports materials, used clothes, cartridges, and many others. The items enhanced our work and supported the poor and needy, assisted schools, helped the sick including HIV/AIDS people, and importantly put smiles on the faces of children.
In July 2012, SD Liberia and other organizations mentioned above again received items on the SDCF UK 40ft container that were very critical to our work. This report summaries the use and impact on beneficiaries of the container materials.
The Report was originally due for October but because schools were open a month later, and due to bad road conditions for people to travel upcountry where some of the container items were taken for distribution, this report was postponed to December 2012.
This report reflects items received only by the SD Liberia institutions. Reports from other organizations (Catholic Health Secretariat, Mother Patern/Sr Tharva, St Peter’s Clarver Buchanan/Sr Carmen, Charity Sisters, Pastor Joseph and Jerome Pedersen (supported by Dr Keith) have not been received, and will be sent to UK when received.
