SAVE THE NATION ORGANISATION, DONORS, & DESCENDANTS of MOSELOLO IN THE USA FEED RESIDENTS IN MOSELOLO VILLAGE AT MOYAMBA DISTRICT, SIERRA LEONE
Save the nation* as the name implies, is a Non Profit organisation that was founded by Dr Solomon Scholz and Sierra Leonean actress and gospel singer Mrs Giileh Kebbie Scholz, with the aim of helping the poor and needy, especially in dire situations. In an effort to play their role in fighting the COVID-19 virus. The board of Directors consisting of Desmond and Jeneba Bishop, Roxanne Alston-Tart, David and Mary Vandy worked hard to contribute personal funds, before reaching out to other donors and descendants of the Moselolo district in the USA.
The initiation of food distribution in the village of Moselolo is part of a continuing process to assist remote regions and shed a spotlight on their needs to the rest of the world, in the hope that other donors would not only reach out to them but help in areas needed. The village of Moselolo consists of 70 households. Save the Nation made a preliminary visit to count how many households there were to provide for, and gave coupons to ensure an orderly food distribution process.
On Sunday, 6th September 2020. Save the Nations team, led by Sierra Leone Program Director Mrs. Cordelia Sankoh distributed to the residents of Moselolo village assorted food items such as a bag of rice and onions, per household, along with oil and other food items. Speaking to the press, residents showed how thrilled they were as they received the donation. They admitted that the donation was timely and necessary given the rains, and lack of food in that region at the time, more so when the Covid 19 has brought a stand till to their livelihood activities through which they get their daily survival.
Moselolo, a village in Moyamba district which lacks both school and health care facilities among many other social amenities that they have been deprived of. Speaking to the press, the residents explained how they travel to neighboring villages and towns for medical care and educational needs. They expressed a great need for a hospital and a school in their village.
Beneficiaries of the donation went further to pour praises on the Save the Nation Organisation and donors for their kind human gesture.
