The Liberia National Police (LNP) Inspector General, Col. Patrick Sudue, has urged Liberians, non-governmental bodies and philanthropists to identify with the ‘less fortunate’ by providing them food in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
“In most parts of Liberia, the ‘less fortunate’ are seen in every corner, and there is a need to call the attention of all Liberians and philanthropists to assist these boys and girls who are languishing on the streets,” the Police IG said.
Speaking with the Liberia News Agency (LINA) recently, Col. Sudue disclosed during the period of the pandemic, there is a need to “show love for each other,” noting that “there are people who cannot afford a meal right now, and as such there is a need to reach out to them in such difficult time.”
“Though I have a very huge task and responsibility as Inspector General to carry on law enforcement, but I have to come here today to identify with the ‘less fortunate’ brothers and sisters.
“My family and I have prepared a delicious meal with bottles of non-alcoholic drinks for our brothers and sisters who cannot afford to get food to eat in this critical period of our country,” Col. Sudue said.
He continued: “Serving humanity is part of my life. These are people who are unable to make ends meet in our society because of the ‘Stay At Home’ mandate. So, my wife and I have decided to come and identify with them in our own way. I should have been at all checkpoints to ensure that law enforcement is going on, but I have tabled that to come and identify with my brothers and sisters.”
Col. Sudue stated that it is less of his worries how much the initiative will cost his family as long as someone gets a meal for the day and does not go to bed hungry.
“We have the passion to do what we ought to do, but it needs to be done collectively. It should not be a certain group of people or family.
“We all can join the campaign to help our brothers and sisters. Since the outbreak, (of the coronavirus) this is something that we have been doing to help other people. “We are calling on the general public to join the campaign to help the less fortunate Liberians in this period of the pandemic,”. Col. Sudue said.
