PUL Receives Equipment, Stationery Donations
MONROVIA, August 2 (LINA) - The Press Union of Liberia has received two separate donations of assorted office equipment and stationery from Internews and a former Liberian journalist residing in the United States.
The Internews donation valued over US$2,000 included three-side drawer desks, high back chairs, drawer cabinets, wall white board, air conditioner and wireless router, among several others, while Mr. James Momoh donated 30 reams of papers.
Receiving the Internews donation on behalf of the PUL, Secretary General D. Kaihenneh Sengbeh described the gesture as invaluable and that the equipment were donated when they are most needed.
Internews is a non-profit organization whose mission is to empower local media worldwide to give people the news and information they need, the ability to connect and the means to make their voices heard.
Internews Project Director Rachel Maher said the organization was pleased to make the donation to help strengthen the PUL’s capacity and enhance its work in championing the cause of media freedom and professional journalism in Liberia.
Sengbeh has meanwhile applauded Mr. Momoh for the donation and stated that it will strengthen the secretariat and the media monitoring section of the Union.
Mr. Momoh, a former Liberian journalist, is now an Adjunct Faculty at the African Center for Strategic Studies in Washington D.C, USA. He made the donation at the PUL Headquarters Friday.
