Presenting the cash of at least L$15,000 to the five beneficiaries, including students Layee Kamara, Amelia Joe, Anita Keddie, Emmanuel Teah and Pita Dorley on his behalf over the weekend, Blamo Toe termed the gesture as Smith’s initial contribution to the kids, adding that the cash may appear little so others, but the kids nearly stay out of school this academic year if the intervention was not made.

Toe further stressed that U-Thant Smith, the Chief Executive Officer of Dakpannah24 News and Television, was constructively engaged in the kids’ condition a week prior to the reopening of school across the country. The Liberian Journalist felt he had to immediately intervene, due to the significance and his love of building the human capacity of young Liberian students.

Blamo Toe, who also serves as the Sub-editor of News at ADI Communications Incorporated, the operator of Bana FM and Television, has at the same time informed the kids and their parents that the Dakpannah24 News and Television CEO has promised to make additional contributions during the course of the 2021-2022 academic school year.

Also making official remarks, the niece of U-Thant Smith, Sandra Smith admonished the kids to remain strong and prayerful throughout their schooling activities, noting that her uncle has been providing assistance both in cash and materials to underprivileged children once the financial hand is available.

Miss Smith also lauded Journalist Blamo N. Toe for pushing the plights of the beneficiaries to her uncle, U-Thant Smith, something according to her, she had no doubt that Smith would have lightened their faces with a golden smile as demonstrated.

Meanwhile, two of the kids’ parents on behalf of the others, showered God’s blessings upon the life of U-Thant for his kind gesture, adding that the little cash has made it possible for their children to now register in the public school and will attend this year.

Patience, one of the parents also lauded Journalist Blamo Toe for his intervention, terming it as timely, a surprise and rewarding.

At the same time, the five beneficiaries thanked the US based Liberian Journalist, U-Thant Smith for his meaningful contributions to the students community, stressing that the cash has taken away their worries and stress about how they would have attended school this year with their friends without paying fees.
