The Executive Director of the Liberia Albino Society (LIS) Patricia Logan said it is troubling, the plan eviction from their facility due to the failure of them to meet up with their financial obligation.
Madam Logan disclosed that as a result of Government inability to release their allotment the property owners have served them a communication to leave their property since September 30, 2019.
She narrated that have occupied the building since 2011 but of late has been experiencing financial difficulties to ensure they meet up with the obligation.
The LIS Boss added that the building was given to them through the instrumentally of former Montserrado superintendent Madam Grace T .Kpaan as well as the efforts of the former president Madam Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.
Madam Logan who put the total cost of the building at about 35, 000usd appealed to national government to under write such cost due to their contribution to the society through the services they are rendering across Liberia.
Moreover, we are also calling on the president to see reasons to give strict instructions to the relevant government functionaries to pay their money back and ensure that they received $150,000.00USD instead of $75,000.00USD, Mrs. Logan added.
According to her the 75,000usd instead of their previous 150,000usd
Is impeding their full implementation to execute their various activities namely: scholarship program, medical outreach, quarterly treatment for persons living with albinism and our mini grant.
She explained that as a result of the Current financial challenge they are unable to put their scholarship students back in school as they are now rooming around, something she pointed out is saddened for the community and Country at large.
“Our institution is at a total collapse if the president doesn’t give us this attention and tell his deputies to act now”, she noted.
We are not going to protest at the office of the president on Monday but going to call his attention to some of these issues and need redress as soon as possible, Patricia stressed.
Education the LIS head stated is the bedrock for everyone and Albinos are the ones helping to make an impact in the lives of some Liberians from that sector and should be supported to the core, Patricia mentioned.
LIS has over the period been in the vanguard of providing free medical supplies to its members including other less fortunate people across the Country.
