He said when someone cries it is their concern as Christians to know what the cause is and to find solution to the problem.

Bishop Wilson went on to say that they sympathize with the victims but stressed the need for them to think about the laws of the land.

According to the Bishop the people are too stubborn.

“God made this world very well and structured it well, but human activities have caused some damage on the earth”

The Bishop recalled when he used to go to Regent village to fellowship and how that environment was friendly with trees but now all the trees have gone.

He stressed the need for them to go into action not to only praying but by setting up structures and ensure that they do not build again on the wrong side.

“Since we are the cause, let us come together to put things in place and stop such action”

He spoke about the donation they have made as church to Council of Churches in Sierra Leone but stressed the need for them to do theirs individually for the reopening of school.

Head of Project of the Freetown Anglican Dioceses Jonathan A. Thomas said they are not pleased with what happen to them but they were in that community to support them and for them to know that they were not alone.

He said the support for the donation came from the Parish of West Wittering United Kingdom, the United Society Propagated of the Gospel (USPG) and the Dioceses of North Carolina and the St. Philips of Episcope Church USA.

The donated items he said include: 80 bags of rice, 80 gallons of cooking oil, 80 packets of salt and 130 school bags including other school materials. 

The Head Woman of Regent Village madam Eleanor Metzger thanked the Freetown Anglican Dioceses   for their timely support. She stressed the need for them to plant more trees and preserve the environment. The head woman distributed the donated items to the three camps at Regent and the schools and learning materials was distributed by the Bishop and team to the children.

The donation was made possible again through the help of the Freetown Anglican Dioceses youth. The opening prayer before the distribution was made by the Archdeacon Canon Joseph Khamara.

The victims were pleased with the donation. They thanked the Freetown Anglican Dioceses and all those that contributed to make the donation possible.
