The Movement for Economic Empowerment (MOVEE), has identified with two physically challenged groups in Monrovia.
The party through its Chairman, Dee Maxwell Saah Kemayah made donations of assorted food items to the groups on Christmas eve.
Donating the items on behalf of the party’s standard bearer, Dr. J. Mills Jones and his wife, Esther, Mr. Kemayah told the beneficiaries that the donations were a manifestation of their commitment to ensuring a Liberia of equal opportunities for its citizens.
The beneficiaries are the Group of 77 on Newport Street and the Christian Association of the Blind (CAB) located on the Robertsfield Highway.
Kemayah said Dr. Jones and the party envision a Liberia where all of its citizens, be it physically challenged as in the case of members of CAB, will feel a sense of equality.
“We believe as a party that we are all Liberians and should be treated equally, so that’s why we have come here to identify with you, and this is not just lip service,” said Kemayah.
He urged the beneficiaries to take advantage of the upcoming voter registration process to register, stressing that “We want to encourage all of you to actively participate within the democratic landscape of our country.”
The MOVEE national chairman said: “As a party we are committed to ascending to power through the ballot box and so that’s why we come here today to identify with you.”
He said just by doing that, it would strengthen their resolve as a party to shift the paradigm of Liberia in the direction that will positively transform the lives of its people including but not limited to the physically challenged.
Receiving the items, Beyan Korta, President of CAB, thanked Dr. Jones and his wife for their gesture and wished them the best as they embark on a vigorous campaign in the 2017 presidential elections.
Mr. Korta said he was not surprised by the donation from Dr. Jones and the party, because they have a long standing relationship with CAB and could recall Dr. Jones’ assistance to them while at the Central Bank.
In another development, Dr. Jones has also donated 8.5 KVA Generator to Makona Radio Station in Foya, Lofa County, which went off air during the funeral rites of the late Eugene Fallah Kparkar.
The station is one of the many development initiatives undertaken by the late Kparkar for his people and which is presently serving the people in that part of Liberia.
It is also used to give peace messages to neighboring countries: Guinea and Sierra Leone. It serves a population of more than 100, 000. “The dream of the late Kparkar must live on,” Dr. Jones said.
