Sierra Leone News: Amb. Wu Peng donates to GSS Kenema

Chinese Ambassador Wu Peng was on Wednesday 7th November 2018, enrolled as an honourary Old Boy when he visited the Government Secondary School in Kenema where he made donations. “It is my great pleasure to visit Kenema Government Secondary School again as I was here one year ago and conferred honourary alumni by the Principal. I visited because I was introduced by two excellent alumnus of this school – Hon. Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Alie Kabba and Minister Counselor of Sierra Leone Permanent Mission in the United Nations, Saidu Nallo.” Ambassador Wu said he had gone to make a donation to the school and to offer free medical treatment for pupils and teachers. The free medical services will be offered by the Chinese Military Medical Team and China CDC experts. “As a good friend of Sierra Leone, China fully endorses President Bio’s governance philosophy and today we are here hoping to contribute a little bit to the development of Kenema.” He continued, “We understand that the free quality education program faces some difficulties like shortage of school furniture, stationery and modern teaching facilities such as computers. Today, we have prepared some computers, solar-energy lights, schoolbags, notebooks and other kinds of equipment and stationery for the school. We hope our donation will benefit pupils in the Kenema Government Secondary School and help facilitate your study and light up your dreams.” Ambassador Wu said Tuesday, the Chinese Embassy joined Chinese doctors and Sierra Leonean partners to launch the “Brightness Trip” activity in the Kenema Government Hospital, aiming at helping people who are suffering from cataract to see the beautiful world again. He said this is the first time that such service is being offered in the provinces and it is kind of trailblazing. “Although many obstacles including equipment shortage and power instability do exist in performing cataract surgery here, we decided to do it in Kenema because we believe people here have the same right and same demand for access to good medical service as people in any other parts of this country. “Brightness Trip” focuses on cataract, but we know Kenema citizens also need treatment of other kinds of diseases, so we bring Chinese medical experts of various departments here in light of other medical requests.” The Ambassador stressed the hope of a country lies in education of its children and that’s why they traveled hundreds of miles from Freetown to Kenema with gifts for the pupils. The Principal of the school, Mansaray, said they were delighted to see the Ambassador again and this time he came with so many goodies for the school. “We are very happy that you have taken us very seriously as these donations would go a long way to help the pupils. As the free medical service, we are all delighted as many pupils need medicare as well as teachers and other officials in the school. On behalf of the board of the school I want to thank you and hope you will continue to think of GSS Kenema wherever you are.”
