Liberia National Red Cross Society (LNRCS), in partnership with Health Systems Strengthening (HSS) Liberia, have provided food to vulnerable groups as part of their celebration of Liberia’s 174th independence.
Liberia became an independent nation on 26 July, 1847.
The humanitarian organisations, it was gathered, reached out to needy Liberians in the United Association of the Blind, Sis. Aye Home, Share Cared Children Home, Khantan Children Village, and Antoinette Tubman Cheshire Home.
They noted that while promoting handwashing and best hygiene practices, educating the public about the Covid-19 pandemic, sharing prevention information, helping prevent misinformation, they were also prioritising and critically looking at other essential needs including the provision of food.
‘Today, we are happy to be here to share food rations with you as we celebrate this year’s Independence Day’, a joint statement by the LNRCS Secretary General, Ambullai Perry, and the HSS Liberia President, Rohit Suji, read.
‘Your welfare, especially food aid, is critical at the moment and must be treated at all times with urgency’.
The statement also said, ‘The Liberian Red Cross is forever grateful to the HSS Liberia for the support offered for us to reach out to you today’.
