U.S Embassy Constructs Ivorian Refugee Women Center

By John Bropleh, Maryland County Correspondent 

HARPER, Feb 3 (LINA) - The United States Embassy near the Liberian capital, Monrovia, has constructed a refugee women center in Little Webbo Camp in Harper, Maryland County.

The building, which is estimated at over US$5,000, is for the use by Ivorian refugee women residing in the camp.

Presenting the building to the camp management following its completion over the weekend, US Ambassador Debora Malac told the 10,000 Ivorian refugees that her Government was concerned about their plight and decided to identify with them.

She then urged the refugees to make maximum use of the facility, and hoped other benefits could follow in the future.

In remarks at the ceremony, the spokesperson of the refugees, Elizabeth Quiah, thanked  the U.S Government for the concern shown for them, and promised that the building would be used to build their capacity as they prepare to return home and contribute to the rebuilding of their country.
