MNG Gold Liberia, a Turkish gold mining company operating in Kokoyah Statutory District, Bong County has donated 25 bags of rice to the Gbarnga Central Prison for feeding of inmates at the facility.
MNG Gold’s Government and Community Relations Supervisor Eugene J. M. Kollie, presented the items on behalf of the company.
Mr. Kollie, presenting the items, states that the intervention comes in response to an appeal by Bong Acting County Superintendent Anthony Sheriff.
Kollie explains that Mr. Sheriff recently engaged the company to assist the prison with rice to feed the inmates.
“Today, we deem it necessary to come and present these 25 bags of rice to you so that you can give to our brothers and sisters that are in prison,” he says.
“We believe that doing these things will make us connect positively and do the right things for our people in Bong County and Liberia. On behalf of MNG Gold Liberia, we present the rice to you,” Kollie asserts.
Administrators at the prison say the overcrowded facility ran out of food to feed the inmates, prompting the intervention.
Receiving the rice, Mr. Sheriff gives thanks to the management of the company for the assistance to the prison.
He terms the donation by MNG Gold Liberia as a “show of partnership and corporation.”–Edited by Winston W. Parley
