Rev. Mother of the New Creation Ministry Church in New York USA yesterday admonished disabled polio victims at Wallace Johnson street bus park that God did not desire anyone to perish and should therefore not put their eyes on their conditions as healing would come from God at the time they least expected it.
The occasion was meant to distribute relief items such as food, clothing and toys which was made possible through the collaborative efforts of the Sierra Leone Nurses Association New York chapter and the New Creation Ministry Church New York in USA through the Emauni Trust fund.
She laid hands on each and every disabled present to serve as soul savers as she put it God is the healer of our souls but noted that someone needs to go out and save other souls in order to manifest the work of God.
Before the official handing over of the relief items one the benefactors who work with the United Nations in Congo Kinshasa Fatmata Bangura recalled that the war left huge humanitarian needs in Sierra Leone that could only be addressed with the collective efforts of Sierra Leoneans at home and in the Diaspora.
She pledged that she would rally around Sierra Leoneans working in Congo to do something towards their Sierra Leonean compatriots back at home in the name of humanity and patriotism. The Chairman of the Jesus for the disabled organization Alhassan Sesay acknowledged Madam Ashmawo Bangura who works for the Neonatal Intensive Care Suny Down State Medical Center Brooklyn in New York, adding that they came to know Mrs Bangura last year through her son Emauni who used that occasion to donate similar items towards their welfare.
He said they were very pleased with Mrs Bangura and those organizations in USA that support her visits to them for the past two years now.
He noted that they were incapacitated to do in return whatever gesture they receive from them but pledged their support and cooperation to their benefactors out there through prayers.
He observed that their prayers could not be underestimated as the current gesture was made available from their last year prayers in which they prayed for more charitable organizations to intervene on their behalf.
The spokesman of the Jesus for the disabled Raymond Buck in appreciation of the items noted that they would appreciate things more if the New Creation Ministry, Emauni trust Fund and the Sierra Leone Nurses Association in USA partner with other charitable organizations out there to help build their capacities so that they might not continue to live on handouts.
The mum of the Sierra Leone Nurses Association New York Chapter Elizabeth M. Sesay said as a retired medical administrator in New York she was proud of her daughter for her initiative in helping fellow Sierra Leoneans back at home. She concluded that, she would give her moral support towards the wellbeing of every Sierra Leonean.
