The Tugbe-poh quarter in Karboh Clan, Sanquin Statutory District, Sinoe County are residing in Montserrado County and parts adjacent recently held a memorial service for their brothers and sisters who lost their lives before and during the war.
This was disclosed by the Chairlady of the quarter, Madame Elizabeth Worjloh in an interview with journalists in Monrovia.

According to her, during the service, more than 30 persons were remembered for their role played in the development agenda of the quarter and the district over the years when they were alive which have impacted the lives of the citizens in the area.
Madame Worjloh is urging members of the quarter and the district in general to put aside their political, sectional and religious differences and work together for the betterment of the community.
She disclosed that more than L$30,000 was raised to adequately support development initiatives back home in Sinoe.
Earlier, the Senior Advisor to the quarter, Prof. A. Nyanfore Nimely, said that fund raised from the program will go towards the construction of a health center in Karboh to alleviate the suffering of the citizens on health matters.
Prof. Nimely said that besides the clinic, plans have been finalized for the quarter to also undertake the construction of several handpumps and modern toilet facilities to avoid citizens using nearby beaches and bushes for defecating.
The memorial service sermon was delivered by the senior Pastor of the Emmanuel Temple of the Independent Pentecostal Church of Christ (IPC), Rev. N. Togba Jackson in the Borough of New Kru Town.
He admonished the immediate bereaved families to always seek God's guidance to restore their hope so they will not always focus on the dead.
