05/27/2020 Liberia (AllAfrica) – VOX is a Liberian Charity based in Lower Margibi County which has identified the most vulnerable population affected by COVID-19 in Boye’s Town. The charity has contributed by distributing food, non-food items to people in need. Several pastors, religious institutions also benefited from the donation. The vision bearer and co-founder of VOX Liberia, Joseph Kebbie said the current lockdown has created serious economic hardship for households who depend on daily transaction to get food and other necessities.
VOX Liberia in collaboration with its partners also provided 30 bags of the 25kg rice plus some undisclosed amount of cash to religious leaders. He also said, “These men of God depend solely on offerings being collected during worship services to carter to their families but are currently unable to conduct worship services as a result of the closure of churches. The banning of all religious services was part of the social distancing measures put in place by the Liberian government to stop the spread of the coronavirus.”
Prior to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus in Liberia, VOX Liberia in collaboration with its International and local partners has been providing humanitarian services to less-fortunate Liberians, especially disadvantaged youth through the distribution of clothing, food and non-food materials as part of its outreach activities.
Pastor and other religious leaders around the world have been hit hard economically by the coronavirus. Many who lead churches in poor or heavily quarantined countries have found it hard to survive and provide for their families during this period. Thankfully, there are groups like VOX who are able to step in and help them so that the gospel can continue to spread.
