Albino Society Seeks US$66k To Construct School
By Stephen N. Sonpon

MONROVIA, September17 (LINA) – The Liberia Albino Society says it needs US$66,000 to construct a 24-classroom school building in Bentol, Montserrado County.

The National Focal Person of the society Clarence Clay said the school is intended to afford Albinos the opportunity to have easy access to good education.

According to Clay, the projected amount has been presented to the Senate Committee on Ways, Means and Finance, noting, “They have assured us that they will strive to provide the amount upon the passage of the 2016/2017 National Budget.”

Clay made the disclosure Friday in a telephone interview on the UNMIL Radio morning talk show “Coffee Break."

He noted that if fully supported, Albinos will contribute their quota to Liberia’s development process.

Clay disclosed that the population of Albinos in the country has grown to over 20,000.
