A welfare center located on Disco Hill, Margibi County has been doing its very best to house over 75 Ebola orphans ranging from four to 18 years of age in the past couple of months.Quite recently our paper was able to grace its quarters to see some of the children who are housed at the orphanage which has the capacity of accommodating up to 100 children.-Our mission is to destroy the works of the Devil. We endeavor to redeem those he has attacked and is determined to destroy- Bro. Wilmot B. Yalartai.Touring through two large housing quarters, one being where the children live and another mainly for educational and church purposes, the center is well constructed.“The center’s construction began on November 18, 2010 and was completed in October 2013. It is a collaborative project by Creflo Dollar Ministries and the Abundant life Chapel. The entire facility was named after Pastor Taffi Dollar, the wife of Dr. Creflo Dollar for their dream, sacrifice and wonderful gift that will transform the lives of these children,” added Wilhelmina Yalartai, a caretaker at the facility.According to Wilhelmina, the center only focuses on children who were orphaned by Ebola and so far there are up to 10 survivors as well living there.“We intend to keep these children until they graduate from college mainly because they don’t have anyone to hand them over to. We are all they have and will do our best to protect these children,” she added.Children of all sizes, bearing their own tale of how Ebola riddled their lives, spend their days at TDCWC under monitoring, protection and care.According to care workers at the facility, the center endeavors to provide encouragement for orphans, the poor, less fortunate and abandoned children. The center’s prime focus is religion and preparing the children for their future through its enabling environment.“Our facility expresses the love of God for them in their various situations,” the facility workers shared.While watching three teenagers who appeared to be very close, our paper was told that the children lost 16 of their relatives and are the only members remaining.Nehemiah Dumbai,15, Bendu Dumbai,13 and their brother Amos Dumbai 12 each shared a similar story of how they ended up at the center.“We lost everyone and have been here together since November. Though we don’t have anyone, the center takes care of us and we are happy to be here considering what has happened in our lives,” stated Nehemiah.Bendu who says she survived Ebola after contracting it along with 16 of her relatives who all passed away feels happy about being alive.“I love my brothers and I’m happy to be here with them together as a family,” she smiled.Meanwhile, the center is in need of many things including food, computers, books, toys and above all security, an important need for the facility.“Right now we have not fenced the place and anyone can come into our quarters at any time. We also have a computer room but no computers are available as of yet and we need them urgently to teach the children,” added Wilhelmina.Also, each child that is housed at the center needs sponsorship, according to the staff. Sponsorship per child is $60.00 United States dollars.“We have two dormitories for the children, kitchen and dining room, chapel, laundry room, running water, school, medical facility, three meals a day, DSTV/cable and space that we would like to use to construct a playground for them. Sponsorship will enable us to continue taking care of these children without any flaws or lack of anything. So far we have been given food twice by WFP, but they have not promised to support us so we are depending on the media to get the news out that we are here with these children who need us,” added WilhelminaShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
