Disabled Liberian Sends Out SOS

A disabled Liberian has sent out an SOS call to the Government of Liberia, humanitarian organizations, President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf and other individuals of goodwill to assist him with his college education.

In an interview, Mr. David Yourfee said since his graduation from the Monrovia College (MC) in 2008, he has been finding it difficult to enroll at any university to further his education.

Mr. Yourfee said he has made all efforts to register for the scheduled October AME Zion Entrance this year. “I have tried my best and made all efforts to register for Zion entrance in October, so I am appealing to humanitarians and the government of Liberia to assist me in my quest for higher education,” David sorrowfully narrated.

When asked whether he ever contacted the National Commission on Disability (NCD), Yourfee explained that he has been at the headquarters of the Commission on several occasions in search of academic assistance, but was only given promises that did not or has not materialize.

David further stated that he wants to realize his dream of being an Accountant to enable him help his country’s development agenda meaningfully.

He concluded that once people with disability are empowered academically; be it formal or informal, the dependency syndrome in the Liberian society will diminish be cut down. Anyone wishing to assist David Yourfee in his quest for higher education can contact him on cell number 0886-463-993.
