As the fight against the COVID-19 crisis intensifies, collective effort and contributions are now the order of the day among local organizations in Liberia.
Making its presence felt in the ongoing crisis was a youth group movement under the banner Economic Reform Alliance (ERA).
The group over the weekend joined the fight against Corona virus in Montserrado County by identifying with key institutions and organizations in and around Montserrado County.
During one of the presentations, the group’s Co-Chair for Administration Ms. Kimberline AC Annan said their gesture is their own way of buttressing government’s effort in the fight against the killer disease.
The initiative she noted was done in two folds as both urban and rural institutions and organizations in Montserrado County have so far benefited.
“On Day one, we visited the JFK Mental Hospital on the Du Port road, The United Blind Association of Liberia in Gardnersville, where we donated food and non-food items with beneficiaries terming our gesture as timely and meaningful”, Ms. Annan added.
Additionally, she told reporters that their day two exercise targeted Todee district in rural Montserrado County where they identified with underprivileged people by donating rice, oil and other detergents as the beneficiaries’ shower praises on them for the gesture.
According to her they intend to do more in order to continue their contribution to the fight against COVID-19.
The ERA-Liberia Co-Chair puts the cost of the two projects at about five hundred thousand Liberian dollars.
She used the occasion to encourage all young people and Liberians in general to follow all health preventive measures in order to avoid the further spread of the virus.
Economic Reform Alliance (ERA) is a youth led organization championing the cause and advocating for the rights and equal opportunities of all persons to be given to them void of political, social and other diverse backgrounds and to as well benefit from the national cake of the Country.
