LET US SUPPORT OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN SIERRA LEONE – Supreme Knight
By Sir Kt Bro Albert Salia, Supreme IT Officer
THE Supreme Knight, Sir Kt Bro Ernest Amoako-Arhen and the Grand Lady, Most Respected Lady Sister Alice Ayebi, of the Noble Order of the Knights and Ladies of Marshall, have appealed for material and financial support to victims of the recent disaster in Sierra Leone.
They particularly appealed to members of the Knights and Ladies of Marshall, to donate generously in the spirit of the values of the Noble Order, charity and service.
Making the appeal through marshallan.org, the Supreme Knight, Sir Kt Bro Amoako-Arhen said all donations should be channelled through the contact person of the Marshallan Relief and Development Service (MAREDES), W/Bro Samuel Zan Akologo (0244318807 and email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com) , to enable MAREDES, the development wing of the Noble Order to make the presentation on the society’s behalf.
He, therefore, appealed to Councils and Courts to, as a matter of urgency, mobilise relief items and cash to “our Brothers and Sisters who might have suffered either directly or indirectly from the mudslides”.
“Let us all rise to the occasion and contribute in the spirit of Charity and Service,” he stated.
Sir Kt Bro Ernest Amoako-Arhen acknowledged the support of Marshallans during the Ebola crisis to Liberians and Sierra Leoneans.
He said the leadership of the Noble Order was in touch with the leadership of the Church in Freetown, through the Archbishop, Most Rev Edward Tamba Charles.
“This is the time for us to show love, charity and fraternity to our Brothers and Sisters,” he stated.
Letter to Archbishop
In an August 15, 2017, letter to Most Rev Tamba Charles, the Supreme Knight, expressed the grief of the Noble Order on the death of more than 300 Sierra Leoneans following the recent floods and mudslides.
“The Noble Order commiserates with the bereaved families and wishes other equally affected persons quick recovery from the trauma,” it stated.
Councils and Courts in Sierra Leone
Currently, Sierra Leone is host to Council 112 and Court 107, Freetown; Council 120 and Court 116, Kissy, Freetown and Council 121 and Court 117, Wilberforce.
The letter urged the various families to take heart from the calamity and continue to be of help to those in dire need of whatever form of assistance.
“We pray that the Lord God will continue to strengthen the people of Sierra Leone in spite of the prevailing difficulties,” it stated.
