In Covid-19 Fight:
President George M. Weah through MCC and LCP Reaches Out To Todee District Residents.
As the country grapples with terrifying effects of the coronavirus disease or covid-19, there have been joint efforts by government and private sector groupings to tackle the virus.
Two of those institutions that have so far joined forces in this drive are the Liberia Crusaders for Peace (LCP), a social cultural organization, and the Monrovia City Corporation (MCC).
As part of their joint effort, LCP and the Monrovia City government on Wednesday, April 22, 2020 embarked on an outreach and sensitization mission in Todee District, Rural Montserrado County.
During the mission, the joint collaboration distributed several bags of rice and anti covid-19 materials to various towns and villages in the district, an initiative fully supported by President George M. Weah.
The mission also provided basic preventive messages of the disease to residents of the district.
Speaking during the presentations, the Executive Director of LCP, Madam Juli Endee, called on citizens of the district to help keep Liberia safe by adhering to the key information.
“You must continue to wash your hands with clean water at all times and you must observe all the health protocols laid down by health authorities,” she ordered.
According to the LCP boss, the consignment is part of the 1,000 bags of rice provided through the initiative of President George Manneh Weah for the people of Montserrado County.
“This is part of the 1,000 bags of rice provided by our President and so we have come here to identify with you during these testing times, while at the same time telling you the right things to do to remain safe,” she added.
Mr. Jefferson Tamba Koijee, Mayor of the Monrovia City Corporation, urged the residents to make proper used of the donation, especially the covid-19 materials, and follow the health tips being provided.
He pointed out that the main reason for reaching out to the district was to decentralize the President’s gesture and the preventive messages.
“As the Ambassador earlier told you, please observe all the safety rules. We love you as our citizens and this is why we decided to reach out to you,” he stated.
“We are here because everything cannot just be in [urban] Montserrado alone, because you, too, are important to our development drive. We love you and care for you. This is a clear indication that the government loves you,” Koijee added.
Speaking on behalf of the residents, the Superintendent of the district, Mr. John Tucker, lauded LCP and MCC for the initiative.
He then called on residents to wisely use the donated items for the intended purpose, while at the same time strictly abide by the preventive measures. “We will give you the supports that are needed to fight this disease. Let me assure that you are not alone in this fight; we are with you to the end,” Tucker asserted.
Several Town chiefs and prominent members of the district also thanked the group for the initiative.
