The Lutheran Memorial Church in Madison, Wisconsin, U.S.A will embark on an educational project dubbed "School Kit," a drive intended to help needy Liberian students with stationery supply that will be used in the classroom.
Making the disclosure on June 4, 2004, Mrs. Sarah Schutt of the Education Committee of the church, said that the project will dwell on the supply of educational materials that students will find useful in the Liberian school system. She said, the decision to help Liberian students comes in the wake of careful review of the Liberian situation by other members of the committee and the church.
Currently, the Education Committee of the Lutheran Memorial Church in Madison is strategizing ways and means to begin the process of packaging and shipping the material support to Monrovia.
The "School Kit " Project is expected to kick off in either September or October this year. It is the understanding that the project will finally make its foothold in Monrovia through the St. Peter Lutheran Church in Sinkor, Monrovia for onward distribution to Liberian students.
It is expected that the two churches will form a growing spiritual alliance, as well as humanitarian bond to connect with ordinary Liberians who have suffered brunt of the Liberian civil war.
Meanwhile, Thomas Z. Paye, Pastor of the St. Peter Lutheran Church in Monrovia has expressed happiness and gratitude to Pastor Timothy Dean and the Education Committee of the Lutheran Memorial Church in Madison, Wisconsin for the kind humanitarian assistance.
