Media Note

Monrovia, Liberia
February 27, 2017

U.S. Ambassador to Liberia Christine Elder traveled to Lofa County on February 24.

During the visit, Ambassador Elder had meetings with County Superintendent George Dunor together with members of the community, as well as regional field office representatives of the UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL).

The Ambassador also participated in radio interviews organized by UNMIL Radio and by Harleyngee Community Radio, which is a beneficiary station of the USAID-funded Liberia Media Development Program.

An additional stop was a visit to a WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) project to rehabilitate Voinjama’s water treatment plant, water intake structure, and elevated water storage tank, as well as 44,500 feet of new water pipelines, 15 water kiosks and two solar-powered mini water supply systems. The USAID-funded project is scheduled for completion in March 2018, and should supply clean water to 90% of the population in the county’s capital, including health clinics and schools.
