A local charity, H. Conway Foundation has donated huge consignment of medical supplies, including medical gloves, sponges to the Fish Town Hospital and other health facilities as well as microphones and stands to a community radio station, Voice of Webo Radio in Fish Town, River Gee County – southeast Liberia.
The Foundation aims to improving citizens’ livelihood, particularly underprivileged children by providing them opportunity to acquire education in Montserrado County, River Gee and other parts of Liberia.
