Citizens of Murrayville Township Union (MTU) of Sinoe County residing in Monrovia have embarked on the construction of a US$85,000 multi-purpose community hall and a guesthouse in Caldwell, Montserrado County.
The project is a self-help initiative by members of the union who disclosed that when completed, the hall will be used for meetings, conferences, programs and hosting guests of their compatriots’ in Murrayville, Sinoe County.
A parcel of land for the project was donated to the union by its general chairman, Koon Teah Sneh, Sr. five years ago.
Recently, the women’s wing of the union hosted an honoring and fundraiser event aimed at soliciting funds for the implementation of the project, which generated at least L$30,000.
Martha S. Chea, chairperson of the program committee, said it is now time for members of the community to stop holding community meetings, programs and conferences ‘on piazzas of members’ homes.’ She urged community members to support the construction of the proposed hall to end embarrassment and interference. She also wants the community’s officials on official missions to be hosted in the community guesthouse.
The community’s general chairman, Koon T. Sneh Sr., lauded the efforts of those who made the recent fundraiser successful, which he said begins the process of the fulfillment of the union’s dream. He thanked honorees, patrons, supporters, special guests and the women’s wing for their contributions.
