Miss Liberia 2017, Nobel Liberia Donate to Patients at JFK

MONROVIA, Montserrado – The 2017 Miss Liberia, Wokie Dolo, has partnered with money transfer platform Nobel Liberia to dole out Christmas gifts to sick children undergoing treatment at the John F. Kennedy Memorial Medical Center.

Remarking at the donation ceremony, which was held over the weekend, the CEO of Nobel, Jallah Kesselly, said the items donated was a way to encourage the sick children that they are still a part of society. He wished them a speedy recovery.

“Being sick doesn’t make you different from others; therefore, we are here to encourage you to take your pills and recover quickly,” Kesselly said.

“During this time of the year, it is important to remember those in need. As such, we are delighted to be a part of this occasion to help give back to some of the nation’s less fortunate.”

Kesselly said, over the years, his organization has donated gifts during the holiday season to other hospitals, including Redemption, ELWA, and other government-run hospitals.

Some of the items donated during the weekend included rice, clothes, and toys.

Receiving the donation, the administrator of the Mental Health department of the medical center, Dr. Comfort Cooper, thanked the donors for the thoughtfulness they exhibited. Cooper said the items were sure to make the children happy.

She added, “Even the Bible asks us to give to the needed so that our God we serve will be pleased, and this is just a way for us Christians to celebrate Christmas. And I’m calling on others to follow the footstep of this institution, even if you don’t want to come to the hospital.”
