Schieffelin, Margibi County – Members of the Noble Second Floor (NSF), an organization comprising of law students and lawyers, ended the year 2022 with a major visit to the Phebe Grey Memorial Orphanage on December 23 as part of its year-end charity outreach project to show love to the society.
During the visit, the organization made donations of assorted food items to the home and celebrated with the children by presenting them with Christmas gifts. The Phebe Grey Memorial Orphanage, which is located within the Schieffelin Township in Margibi County, is home to over 100 orphans – boys and girls.
The visit began with a brief indoor program held in the auditorium of the orphanage where details of the activities and mission of the NSF were shared with the children in addition to a few motivating remarks made by selected members of the organization.
Speaking on behalf of the President of the Noble Second Floor, Cllr. Jamal Christopher Dehtho, who is also an Associate Member of NSF, encouraged the kids to be steadfast and push for a bright future.
He also stressed the importance of education and encouraged the orphans to look beyond their current circumstances and focus on their education in order to have a better quality of life in the future so that they too can contribute to society when they get older.
Cllr. Dehtho, who is also the Vice President of the Liberia National Bar Association, emphasized that the NSF was pleased to put smiles on the faces of the kids, adding that the organization intends to do more in year 2023.
For his part, Atty. Jeremiah Samuel-Dugbo, I., who spoke on behalf of the Vision Bearers of the NSF, highlighted that the NSF takes delight in charity as it is the first pillar of the Organization’s core values.
Items donated and shared by the Noble Second Floor’s Santa Claus included bags of rice, clothes, footwear, toys, and sweets, amongst other things. The donated items were valued at over US$1,400.
The donation was followed by a Christmas party for the kids. After having food, the kids then staged a dancing competition with NSF members. The dance competition brought even more joy to the kids as they were seen laughing and celebrating.
In her remarks, the caretaker of the Phebe Grey Memorial Orphanage expressed gratitude and delight for the NFS charity, stating that it was “quite timely and meaningful”. She added that the charity outreach was crucial for the kids because since the end of 2017, there has been no support or donation made to the home.
Established in 2019, the Noble Second Floor is an association comprising of law students of the Louis Arthur Grimes of Law (LAGSL) and lawyers who are committed to improving the learning environment of the law school and the Liberian society at large through charity, scholarship, and fellowship.
