The Chairman of Lofa County Association in New South Wales, Australia, Albert Johnson, has assured citizens that the association will lend its unflinching support to their wellbeing.
He said despite being in a faraway land, they are aware of the challenges facing Lofians and are prepared to strive to impact their lives.
Johnson gave the assurance Wednesday in an interview with the Liberia News Agency via mobile phone from Australia.“We have come together to extend our hands to our people back home and they can be assured that with the help of our sponsors, partners and using our own resources, we will be able to impact their lives,” Chairman Johnson emphasized.
Reflecting on the 17 October launch of the association, Johnson praised sponsors, partners and local Australian organizations, including the Sisters of Mercy, a Catholic organization, a local council as well as the Liberian community in Australia for gracing the program.
Johnson disclosed that the association plans to respond to the health needs of the elderly and assist less fortunate students and orphans with their educational needs.
The Lofa County Association in New South Wales Incorporated was certificated in early 2014 as a legitimate establishment to operate in that part of the world.
According to Johnson, the association has secured a 40-foot container of assorted goods to be shipped to Liberia for the people of Lofa County.
Meanwhile, Johnson is calling on the government to assist the association with duty-free privilege as a non-profit group that is helping to deliver services to Liberians.
