, recently distributed school learning materials to one thousand seven hundred and twenty nine pupils in twenty three primary schools in classes five and six at Mile 91 in the Tonkolili District.

It could be recalled that similar donations have been made to most schools in the Port Loko District to help most of the marginalized and deprived children who are finding it very difficult to cope with their education as a result of financial constraints.

Among the items distributed were 6916 exercise books, 3441pens and 1729 pencils to children from both Muslim and Christian backgrounds.

Speaking to the head of the organization, Mr. Fuad Sahid Lawleh, he said Humanity First is an international aid agency that provides aid and assistance to those in need irrespective of race, religion or politics from registered offices now in 33 countries. According to Mr. Lawleh, the organisation has been working on projects in 35 countries across 6 continents.”

Humanity First is a trust established to promote and safeguard the preservation of human life and dignity. It is a non-political, non-sectarian international relief and development agency that works with the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people. Humanity First was established in the UK in the early 1990’s. All aid workers and the management of Humanity First are unpaid volunteers.

He further went on to state that the organization relieves suffering caused by natural disasters or human conflict, promotes peace and understanding based upon mutual tolerance and respect, and strengthens people’s capacity to help themselves.

He also revealed that as an impartial organization, it provides aid and assistance to those in need irrespective of race, religion or politics

With hard work, they continue to achieve a massive return on donations by exploiting a pool of expert volunteers, global sourcing resulting in the majority of funds going directly to field projects

Collaboratively they work with local authorities and other NGOs in a spirit of partnership to achieve the best outcomes.

They also combine global expertise and resources with local knowledge of needs and culture to maximize the impact of their work

Mr. Lawleh also cited their aim to empower communities to get back on their feet, heal rifts and to become independent.

Similar sentiments were expressed by the Chairman Education Committee, Local Council Mr. FY Kanu and JA Kargbo, expressed similar sentiments on the donation as the first of its kind since appointed as Supervisor and hoped that other donors would emulate such an example.
