President George Weah has just declared Liberia a STATE OF EMERGENCY.
“Therefore, by the authority granted to me under Articles 85, 86, 87 and 88 of the Liberian Constitution and after due consultation with the Speaker of the House of Representatives and the President Pro-Tempore of the Liberian Senate as required by law, I, George Manneh Weah, President of the Republic of Liberia, hereby, declare a State of Emergency to exist in and throughout the Republic of Liberia for a period of three weeks renewable until the threat to Liberia from the COVID-19 Virus no longer exists.”
– George Weah, President of Liberia
Please join us in prayer for Liberia. They are also praying for you and your families. We are all in this together to encourage each other through this time of crisis. God is with us! Psalms 91 or “911” is a good prayer to pray.
This blog post is a plea for help. My emails are going crazy with requests for food and medicines. MANY people who were doing small business to survive are not able to do this now. One example is Eric Gbour who runs a taxi to help bring in funds to run their Children’s Home. He has parked his car. One, they are not allowed to take more than 3 passengers, and two there is a limited amount of gas at high prices. This means there are less funds for food.
We are trying our best to help our 4 Children’s homes with extra food and home medicines so they can treat their children if they get any flu like symptoms like malaria or the common cold.
We also have single mothers and widows who will find this time very stressful. For $ 50 we can buy several items which we did for Frances Chea’s family. Frances has been empowered but because of the strict lockdown commencing Friday April 10th, she will not be allowed to sell her goods.
“Throughout this period, residents may leave home only for essential journeys like reasons of health and food which should be restricted to your local communities only and be limited to a single person per household for a maximum of one hour,” President Weah taken from FRONT PAGE AFRICA
