The National Port Authority (NPA), over the weekend identified with several victims of the recent sea erosion that left any persons homeless and the loss of valuable properties in New Kru Town and West Point communities.
According to NPA Operational Analyst, Ishmael T. Koffeh, who works in the office of the NPA Managing Director, Matilda Parker, the NPA Management finds pleasure in identifying with disaster victims around the country.
Mr. Koffeh stated further that the items that were donated to the two communities are part of the NPA own way of identifying with flood victims, to show the Management’s care for people being victimized by natural disaster and other related disasters.
Those items donated included 20 bags of rice, 40 bags of cement and 200 pieces of zinc to each victimized community as its own contribution toward the several people who were left homeless.
Speaking on behalf of the victims, Mama Sheriff of New Kru Town said they were indeed happy to be part of the blessing being awarded to them by the NPA’s management and family.
“We are indeed grateful to NPA for this gesture in identifying with us in this condition worth rewarding. We were about 79 flood victims of New Kru Town Community who lost nearly everything we had including our personal belongings,” Mama Sherriff stated.
