The father of three children, Jackson enjoys helping others. He is Kpelle, the largest tribe in Liberia. At the time of the interview, he had worked at Lott Carey Mission for 24 or 25 years. Initially hired to be a driver, he was promoted to supervise all of the drivers, and is in charge of maintenance of all the Lott Carey vehicles.
He learned about Dignity:Liberia from his boss, the Rev. Emile Sam-Peal, Director of Dignity:Liberia’s NGO office. He feels that serving humanity is the best way to serve God and that by helping Dignity:Liberia, he doing that, as well as serving his boss.
He had heard about fistula on the radio, but he did not know how widespread it was in Liberia. He was deeply moved after meeting some of the young victims of obstetric fistula and hearing how the injury impacted their lives.
He is gracious and humble and I am honored to know him.
