In an effort to buttress journalists’ work in the fight against the Coronavirus pandemic, several institutions have identified with the Press Union of Liberia (PUL).
Journalists across the country continue to be at the forefront, risking their lives to inform and educate the public about the pandemic.
According to a press release, on Tuesday, May 5, 2020, the national commission on Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) donated fifty (50) hands washing buckets, one carton of chlora and one carton of soap to the Press Union of Liberia.
The materials were presented to the PUL at the WASH commission office in Sinkor, Monrovia by its Chief Executive Officer, Bobby Whitefield.
Mr. Whitefield said the materials were his organisation’s way of butressing the PUL’s effort in informing and educating the public about the pandemic. He lauded the Liberian Media for the hard work.
Similarly on Monday this week, the Rotary Club of Sinkor donated two hundred and fifty (250) pieces of nose masks to the PUL. Judge Evan Mappy Morgan presented the materials on behalf of her organisation.
Judge Morgan said the leadership of the Sinkor Rotary Club recognised the pivotal role of the press in the fight against the Coronavirus pandemic, and that the donation was part of the Club’s support to the PUL. She called on other stakeholders to support the PUL in the current fight.
The Sinkor Rotary Club is part of the Rotary International, which is an international service organisation with the sole purpose of bringing together business and professional leaders to provide humanitarian services and advance goodwill and peace around the world.
It is a non-political and non-religious with 35,000 member clubs worldwide and 1.2 million individuals known as Romanians. At the same time Bridge Radio Africa donated fifty (50) pieces of nose masks to the PUL on Monday. Press Release
