A Community Based organization, CODEP in collaboration with Build on Books has on Wednesday 5th November, 2014 supplied food and non food items to Ebola orphans in the Waterloo and nearby communities in the Western Rural District.

Executive Director for Build on Books, Rosetta Kargbo who doubles as CODEP logistic officer said the donation is a weekly process for orphans since the outbreak and that the gesture was creating positive impact in their lives. She said with their intervention many children have survived as according to her since their parents succumbed to the Ebola disease nobody dared to go closer or interact with them. “Even we the aid workers are doing our best but we also do not have the gut to have contact with some orphans who are still at quarantined homes,” she confessed.

She said the funds for the donation were directly coming from the meagre allowances of some philanthropists in England who have opted to just help the kids just like their deceased parents.

The items included tinned fish, Butter, Bread, Milk, Biscuits, Gari, Sugar, and toiletries. She said they also got items from Pee Cee and Sons which include school bags, blankets, pastes, tooth brushes, books and pencils, plates spoons and cups.

As the distribution was going on two cases were spotted of two weeks old and eight months’ old babies very sick and malnourished. Madam said as matter of urgency, she bought all the necessary baby food and some vitamins and milk for them.

“This is not the first time CODEP and Build on Books are taking care of children. We have been doing this since the outbreak of Ebola in the Waterloo and communities,” she said, adding that they get the support from CODEP and Build on Books UK and local businesses.”
