The Liberian Mandingo Association in France (LIMAF) has praised Liberia’s Ambassador to France C. William Allen for the level of cooperation and support he has given the community over the years.
The organization said in a release that Ambassador Allen has brought renewed hope and understanding as well as the promotion of cultural values that have brought growth and unity to the community.
During a courtesy call on Ambassador Allen, the group’s Chairman, Layee Bamba, said “members of the community are happy that the embassy is supporting their programs both in France and Liberia.”
Mr. Bamba said Liberians across France should come together in one accord and unite for the enhancement of future programs and activities of all Liberians under a single umbrella.
LIMAF’s Secretary General Ansu-Mariam Dukuly said Ambassador Allen and the Liberian Embassy staff have been supportive of the organization’s humanitarian programs while at the same time making them feel a part of the larger Liberian community in Europe and other parts of the world.
Mr. Dukuly said LIMAF will remain engaged with the embassy and staff at all times to foster cooperation with other Liberian groups in France and Europe on a common agenda to promote national development.
Responding, Ambassador Allen thanked the executives and members of LIMAF for the visit and commended the new leadership on their recent election.
Ambassador Allen called on them to unite and work closely with every member of the old leadership and other members of the Liberian community as a means of forging a single goal and single agenda.
He said the doors of the embassy will remain open to them whenever they need help and advice.
Accompanying the group’s executives were its elders, advisory and youth council members.
