Grand Bassa County Assistant Superintendent for Development, Adonie Z. Greaves, has identified with the “vulnerable communities” in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County by donating assorted food items and cash to them. Mr. Greaves donated assorted food donation including cash to the Buchanan Central Prison, Old Folks Home, Christian Association of the Blind (CAB), and ‘Group of 77’ or physically challenged people in Buchanan. He said the items donated were made available by him and the County Regional Development Officer, Tobias Weah, as a means of identifying with ‘vulnerable communities’ as Liberia celebrates her 168th Independence.At the Buchanan Central Prison, Mr. Greaves told the inmates that July 26 should be celebrated and observed by all Liberians irrespective of one’s present condition.“We want you to have something to eat too for this July 26 celebration,” he told the beneficiaries.He added that other citizens wish to celebrate the day in grand style, but many do not have the freedom. While some of them are spending their days behind bars, he said, others are being deprived due to the level of afflictions they suffered. “Among you people I know there are rapists, murderers, thieves, not withstanding, other people are behind bars for simple reasons that could have been settled at the community level,” he said.Mr. Greaves said that his meeting with the inmates was not to dignify crime, but to identify with and encourage them that if they are opportune to get out of the prison, they should become productive people in the society.Mr. Rufus G. Chea, who received the items on behalf of the prisoners, commended Mr. Greaves for the items received and promised that it will be used for the intended purpose. At another stop at the Old Folks Home, Moses Henry commended and thanked Mr. Greaves for identifying with them, especially during the celebration of Libeira’s 168th Independence Day.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
