Camp for Peace Liberia launches COVID 19 Emergency Food Distributions in Margibi and Montserrado Counties.
On Friday, May 29, 2020, Camp for Peace Liberia launched COVID 19 emergency food distribution to vulnerable communities in Margibi and Montserado Counties. With a USD 3,000 grant support from the Canadian Steel Workers Union in Canada, the emergency food distribution is set to benefit approximately 500 vulnerable people, including the School of the Blind, the school of the deaf, and the Group of 77 in Kakata, Margibi County. Other beneficiaries will include the blind, Group of 77, and most vulnerable youths in Dolo Town and the rock crusher in Margibi and Monrovia. Still, selected vulnerable beneficiaries will be identified in some communities in Monrovia.
This gesture is Camp for Peace Liberia expression of helping the vulnerable communities cope with the daily food challenges during this time of COVID 19 marked by a nationwide lockdown in which many citizens, especially people with vulnerabilities, find it difficult to fetch food. The food package contained 2 kilos of rice, one bottle of oil, and one bag of super gari along with face masks. Note that the super gari is a local food produced and package by Camp for Peace Liberia in Zorzor, Lofa County.
We want to use this medium to extend our most profound appreciation to the Steel Workers Humanitarian Fund of Canada and all our friends and well-wishers. They continue to express concern, love, and care during this pandemic.

CAMP FOR PEACE LIBERIA REACHED OUT TO VULNERABLE PEOPLE IN MARGIBI LIBERIA WITH COVID 19 EMERGENCY FOOD PACKAGE
The pandemic has changed our lives for the foreseeable future. Still, no one is more impacted than those who were already vulnerable. The blind, deaf, lame, individuals experiencing homelessness, daily wage workers, and people experiencing unemployment need our help. Today, Camp for Peace Liberia reached out to 120 members of the Group of 77 in Kakata, Margibi County, with its COVID 19 emergency food pack. Each food pack contained 2 kilos of rice, one package of super gari, one bottle of oil, and a face mask. Remember, the super gari is a local food produced and package by students from our vocational school. Thanks to the Steelworkers Humanity Fund of Canada and all our friends who made this emergency distribution possible. If we fight together, we will win together. Follow the story below to read more!!

We were able to distribute over 500 bags along with other food items to several vulnerable communities in Margibi and Montserrado Counties through our partner. We are still waiting for a response. Our gari is nutritional with the following ingredients – sugar, high protein milk, coconuts, and a little bit of moringa oil.
