Trade Fair Raises Support For Cancer Society

By Kpor Gbain

MONROVIA, March 18 (LINA) – Business entities and NGOs have supported a trade fair aimed at raising funds for the Liberia Cancer Society, to fight the disease in Liberia.

Sponsors of the event were Liberian businesses and NGOs and guests included the Nigerian Ambassador Obi Nuodozie, FORD Motor Company, Alliance Motor Corporation, Center for Liberian Assistance Inc., the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) in Washington, DC, Hope For Women International (HFWI), and Game Changers Liberia, among others.

Participants at the cancer fair showcased their products, and proceeds from products on display were donated in support of the Cancer Society.

Speaking to the Liberia News Agency at the Paynesville Town Hall, Nigerian Ambassador Nuodozie said cancer has become a serious problem among the women, and hence, there was a need to support the Liberia Cancer Society.

Mr. D. Carlton Wonsiah, Vehicle Sales Manager at Alliance Motor Corporation, told LINA his mother died from cancer and that his company was supporting the cancer society in memory of his mother.

“I hold this view with passion that if we all work to support this cause, we could minimize the cancer disease, if we cannot eliminate it all together in our society. I lost my mother to this disease, so I must do everything in my power to fight it,” Wonsiah said.

Yvette Nyamagi, Program Officer of Game Changers Liberia, said her organization is supporting the Liberia Cancer Society because cancer is a deadly disease which must be contained.

“This decease has caused havoc, especially among women of Liberia and the world, so we must do something to fight it,” she added.
