27 Sep Necessity of Work
Williette Safehouse executed its seventh service project on August 29, 2018, under the theme: Necessity of Work. After a careful observation in the Disabled Community, the service project team was able to recommend Zoegar J. Railey with useful items relating to his business.
Zoegar J. Railey developed his disability post birth. As a child he got seriously ill with high-grade fever, causing his family to take him to Lamco Hospital. The doctor gave him an injection, and complications from the infusion led to his disability. There were no solutions to aid his dire predicament, so Mr. Railey’s parents sent him to stay with his relatives in Monrovia. Living in the city was difficult for Mr. Railey; however, he used his self-dependent nature to put his skills to use. He started a shoe business and a market. Mr. Railey uses his talents daily to sustain his family (composed of his wife and three kids) and his himself.
On August 29, 2018, Williette Safehouse donated materials to support his business including: a box of polish with two colors (brown and black), a box of liquid polish, a shoe brush, a pack of shoe nails, and sewing threads to add to his business supplies. Mr. Railey appreciated the team, he offered astounding praises and encourage Williette Safehouse to continue to help those within the disabled community. He said some of his mates are in the habit of misusing such opportunity. He commended the Williette Safehouse team and acknowledge that our organization is truly a change-maker to the disabled community in Liberia.
