US-Based Liberian Group On Fact-Finding Mission
MONROVIA, February 15 (LINA) - A US-based delegation of the Emancipation Movement of Liberia (EMOL) has arrived in Monrovia for a month-long fact-finding mission and formal launch of its local branch in the country.
A release issued Tuesday said the EMOL delegation, which includes its Founder and Executive Director, Jarwinken Wiah, and the Director for Operations, Aaron J. Manneh, arrived in Monrovia last Friday for a working visit.
The release said the movement is a Liberian civil society organization registered and operating in both America and Liberia as a non-governmental, non-political and non-profit institution aimed at working toward the achievement of socio-economic and political freedom and sustainable developments in Liberia.
The movement also fights poverty, illiteracy, diseases, corruption, bad governance and human rights abuses, among others, according to the release.
The release noted that EMOL’s mission statement is to “pursue fulfillment of the second aspect of the emancipation proclamation to make Liberia truly a symbol of freedom as the first aspect ended the slave trade in the United States.
