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.
