ROBERTSPORT, September 8 (LINA) - Grand Cape Mount County Superintendent Imam Mohammed Paasewe has donated 10 bags of rice to 10 Sierra Leoneans stranded at the Liberia-Sierra Leone border in Bo Waterside in the county.
He said his administration decided to make the donation because the plight of the stranded Sierra Leoneans has claimed its attention, prompting the humanitarian gesture.
According to the Liberia News Agency, Paasewe made the donation during his five-day countywide tour to spread the Ebola prevention and awareness message to residents that ended Saturday.
He said the cordial relationship existing between Liberia and Sierra Leone will continue for the promotion of peace and unity between the two Mano River Union countries.
He assured that the government will cater to Sierra Leoneans in the area of security and food, but urged them to refrain from activities that will create problem.
The Sierra Leoneans, including a pastor, came to Liberia in early August to attend an annual conference of the Living Water Fellowship Church in the Red Light community in Paynesville when the Liberian Government announced the closure of the border between Liberia and Sierra Leone.
Receiving the donation, the Pastor Olumule J. Bospon thanked the county leadership for the gesture and promised that while in the country waiting for the re-opening of the road, they will work within the frame work of the law.
