After meeting with the parents and sibling of five-year-old Michele Jeffreys, nine-year-old Alicia Dorrick and the relatives of their cousin six-year-old Nia Jeffreys along with the Toshao Lenny Moses, it was decided that the two families would receive counseling and other required support to help them through this very difficult time.

The children’s burial arrangements are currently being arranged by the Regional Democratic Council (RDC) as a support to the families.

In light of the Jeffrey families’ bereavement, Minister Edghill is inviting everyone from across the country to pray for them. (DPI)
