Sierra Leone Telegraph: 6 December 2020:
Demonstrating the United States’ commitment to battling COVID-19 at home and supporting US partners around the world, on December 2, 2020 U.S. Ambassador Maria Brewer presented COVID-19 related supplies and equipment to the to the laboratory team of the Ministry of Health and Sanitation. (Photo above: U.S. Ambassador Maria Brewer presented COVID-19 laboratory supplies).
The donation was received by Dr. Mohammed Vandi, Director of Health Security and Emergencies, and was made on behalf of the U.S Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the entire U.S. Mission in Sierra Leone, as a part of ongoing efforts to support Sierra Leone in its fight against COVID-19.
The donated supplies, which total approximately $150,000, are building blocks of the national lab system and are important for a successful pandemic response.
In Sierra Leone, the United States assists with technical support as well as investments to help strengthen the national health systems.
I hope and pray that the new Biden/Harris administration will continue to keep Ambassador Maria Brewer as the Sierra Leone ambassador.
This little country of ours has never been able to stand on her own two feet. Since our independence, we have been acting like children with growth disorders – problems that prevent developing in normal weight, height and other features. Sierra Leone the only place on earth I am proud to call my home has never evolved not even by a tiny inch. Her immaturity and dependence on handouts like a beggar on the streets has been truly completely baffling to millions of us. (lol) Have you ever seen an adult that was incapable of tying his own shoelaces, but wears rumpled, wrinkled clothes to important occasions?
Well, that is what our struggling Sierra Leone truly resembles – a cowardly chicken always fretting and waiting for someone else to intervene in the process of hatching her out of a fragile, broken shell. Yup days and nights it spends waiting and waiting, even though all the conditions are ripe, proper and suitable for her to remove and free herself from perpetual bondage. Folks, that is the image of Sierra Leone that comes to mind! A country of Losers!
Donations, donations, donations, strictly designed to demean, humiliate and degrade our people instead of inspiring them towards the paths of self-reliance and enviable heights of self-sufficiency. It is only a miserable shameless hopeless beggar that wouldn’t make an effort to fend for himself and strive to stand gallantly and responsibly on his own two feet. Shame on the SLPP and our inept, wretched old soldier lazing around in State House without a mission.(lol)
May Allah bless USA for their contribution.
