VP Boaka Presents Fish To Guinea, Sierra Leone    

MONROVIA, January 23 (LINA) - Vice President Joseph N. Boakai has donated two 40-foot containers of tuna fish to the Governments and Peoples of Sierra Leone and Guinea on behalf of the Government of Liberia.

A release from the office of the vice president said Friday the gift is intended to beef up the fight against the Ebola virus that has plagued the Mano River basin since March of 2014.

Vice President Boakai said it was “important to identify with our closest neighbors in this time of great need,” according to the release.

Meanwhile, a dispatch from the Liberian Embassy in Freetown has confirmed one of the containers with 1,338 cases of the fish was received by the Government of Sierra Leone through its national operations coordinator at the National Ebola Response Centre, Steven Gauja.

The dispatch said Gaija thanked the Government of Liberia for the gesture and subsequently turned the consignment over the Dr. Sheku Sesay, donor coordinator of the National Ebola Response Centre of Sierra Leone.

The ceremony was also attended by a member of Liberia’s House of Representatives Saah Joseph and Mrs. Linda Koroma, Sierra Leone’s Deputy Secretary General of the Mano River Union.

The donations were made possible by Vice President Boakai and a British Churchman and Philanthropist, Trevor Cockings of His Church Charity based in the United Kingdom.
