An American-based non-governmental organization, the Selewon International Inc., has donated various items and an unspecified amount of cash to several local communities around the Kpein Township in Nimba County,
The organization has been involved in numerous development initiatives around the Kpein Township, including the distribution of Personal Protective Equipments (PPEs) and food during the outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus disease (EVD); the construction of hand pumps; provision of benches to community schools; and the construction of latrines, as well as a town hall.
Selewon has also provided financial compensation for teachers that are assigned in Kpein and its surrounding towns.
“This week,” said the Liberia Coordinator, Robin Wonmei, “we are donating 500 flashlights and batteries, 146 bags of macaroni for soup, first aid kits and the boxes of gloves to the community health workers.”
Mr. Wonmei elaborated further that Selewon International has embarked on the construction of a library costing about US$10,000 in Kpein. The library project when completed will have a capacity of over 100 seats.
The Selewon International was originally established as Kpein Organization in the United States of America, but was later named, “Selewon International, Inc.,” as a broad-based organization that incorporates anyone who is willing to share its dream and carry out the vision of impacting and developing lives in Kpein and other parts of Nimba.
The organization is governed and funded by Kpein citizens living in the USA, under the leadership of Vernoe S. Wonmei.
Meanwhile, Selewon has called on Kpein citizens in other parts of the world to encourage and acknowledge the objective of the organization.
