Buchanan, Grand Bassa County: Following a series of complaints from residents of Grand Bassa County about the lack of safe drinking water, the Islamic advisor to President George Weah on Wednesday, November 25, 2020, donated five new hand pumps to the residents of Gunnigar Town Community in Buchanan.
Mr. Usmane Jalloh believes that water is one of the key factors to humanity and for citizens to alarm over the lack of safe drinking water in this modern dispensation it is not healthy.
According to Mr. Jalloh, the Center of Humanitarian Activities in Africa donated about 75 hand pumps to the Liberian government through the office of the religious advisor to the president to be distributed among the 15 counties of Liberia with each receiving five.
The Islamic Advisor called on community dwellers of Gunnigar Town to cooperate with the donor and engineers to identify areas where the hand pumps will be constructed.
Speaking on behalf of the county leadership, the development superintendent of Grand Bassa County Flee A. Glay thanked President Weah through his Islamic Advisor for the donation and promised that the hand pumps will be maintained.
