A Pro-Democracy group, Voice from Exile (VEX) has joined the fight against the crisis and as a result of to the harsh consequences and/or economic burden imposed on our people as a result of the life-threatening disease (COVID-19), Voices from Exile (VEx) sees it prudent to donate food and anti-COVID-19 flyers to vulnerable Liberians.
“We consider this as our foremost obligation to inspire hope through needed assistance during this time of crisis or emergency”, said group’s head.
The group promised to continue its support and solidarity to the masses.
“VEx is here to stand for them, stand by them, stand with them, and stand in defense of their ultimate interest, she added.
Among the items donated to four different vulnerable groups and institutions are: Thirty Bags of Rice, Eight gallons of grog oil, one cartoon of detergent soap, twelve bottles of Clorox, Half cartoon of vita cube and many others.
Meanwhile The E.S. Grant Mental Health Center, Antoinette Tubman Orphanage Home, Mission of Hope for Disabled and the Christian Association of the Blind.
Vex puts the total cost of the donation at $US 615 and LD 6,060.
The group however, call on the Weah-led government, especially security personnel, to refrain from using brute force against our people. Because it is about time to fight the virus and not the people.
While we vehemently pursue social justice and equal rights for all Liberians, we must not also forget that economic freedom is as well a national imperative.
VEx recognizes the importance and urgency to stand with and stand by our people especially during these troubling and tragic times of global health emergency. We must reach out to save lives and inspire optimism.
