The Liberia Canoe & Rowing Federation, LCRF, has expressed interest to partner with the Liberia Water & Sewer Corporation, LWSC, to promote the drive on water usage and management.
In a letter to the LWSC, a copy of which is with the Daily Observer, LCRF’s vice president B. Augustus Tarpeh noted that the partnership arrangement will enhance the efforts to develop water sport and create awareness for effective water usage and its management.
“By the same vein promote LWSC’s awareness drive on water usage and management,” Tarpeh said.
Tarpeh’s letter was in reference of the recent LWSC’s celebration of the World Water Day with a boat race.
At the program, LWSC’s director Charles Allen underscored the importance of water management and usage.
Tarpeh recounted the history of the Liberia Canoe & Rowing Federation and the efforts by the federation to develop the game, as a national and international sport.
Tarpeh commended director Allen and his administration for the regatta and assured him of the need for partnership with the LCRF to bring more awareness for better management of water usage in the country.
The World Water Day 2014 regatta was witnessed by hundreds of Liberians and the winners received awards.
The Liberia Canoe & Rowing Federation is a member of the Liberia National Olympic Committee, Africa Canoe Federation and International Canoe Federation.
Since its organization in 2003, it has participated in competitions in Senegal, Cote d’Ivoire and Singapore through the assistance of the Liberia National Olympic Committee.
The Ministry of Youth and Sports supports its activities.
