Tonight the Liberian Consulate in Georgia is sponsoring the University Consortium for Liberia’s second annual United for Liberia Fundraising Gala. Join us in our 24 hour challenge to raise $10,000 for Study Abroad Opportunities for Liberian students wanting to study in the US and American students wanting to study in Liberia.
The Liberian Consulate in Georgia along with members of the Liberian community met with MedShare International early on Monday June 27 to send off a 40 ft container. The container, full of medical supplies, was shipped to Redemption Hospital in Monrovia, Liberia from the MedShare Southeast headquarter in Decatur, Georgia.
MedShare International partners with local hospitals saving tons of medical supplies from landfills. The organization ships these supplies to countries in need.
The Liberian Consulate wants to say a special thanks to MedShare Vice President Nell Diallo and MedShare for their commitment to provide quality medical supplies to Redemption Hospital and other communities of need.
On Friday June 17, Global Atlanta featured an article about the University Consortium for Liberia (UCL) Chief Financial Officer and PhD candidate Saki Golafale. Right now, Saki is in Liberia campaigning for the UCL and giving back to Liberian chemistry students with his ChemTalk lecture. As a former UCL student, after he receives his PhD in chemistry from Clark Atlanta University, Saki must return to Liberia and teach for two years.
The article states:
When Saki T. Golafale had the chance to address an education and business conference four years ago at the University of Liberia in Monrovia, Liberia, he took full advantage to decry the lack of laboratories, equipment and textbooks at his alma mater blocking his efforts to further his chemistry studies.
Liberia was still getting over decades of civil wars that claimed the lives of hundreds of thousands of Liberians, and the ebola crisis still hadn’t taken hold.
