The All-China Federation Union has presented a symbolic check in the tune of thirty thousand United States Dollars ($30,000.00) to the Liberian Embassy in Beijing as a solidarity contribution to the Liberian Labor Congress as part of efforts to support Liberia’s fight against Ebola.
Speaking at a well-attended program at the Union’s head office in Beijing, Mr. Li Yubing, President and Party Representative of the Congress averred that the contribution was his Union’s way of identifying with the Liberian Labor Congress, during this time of the Ebola Virus Epidemic. Mr. Li Yubing indicated that the decision on the part of his Union to identify with the Liberian Labor Congress was due to the fact that the Ebola Virus Epidemic had a devastating effect on the activities of the Liberian Labor Force, which was compelled to halt all of its activities. Similar donations in the amount of 30,000 U.S.D each were made to the Guinean and Sierra Leonean Embassies in Beijing.
Receiving the symbolic check on behalf of the Liberian Labor Congress, the Liberian Ambassador to China, Mr. Dudley Mckinley Thomas expressed sincere gratitude on behalf of the Government and people of Liberia, most especially the Liberian Labor Congress, for the humanitarian gesture made by the All China Federation Union. The Ambassador further went on to state that this donation will assist in a long way in helping to reawaken the activities of the Liberian Labor Congress that have been lying idle since the outbreak of the epidemic. He concluded by stating that “in time of crisis, a friend who identifies with you is a friend indeed”. He therefore requested the All China Federation Union to directly transfer the amount to the bank account of the Liberian Labor Congress.
