The Program for Christians-Muslims Relations in Africa (PROCMURA) Liberia Area Committee over the weekend identified with Ebola survivors and several communities in Virginia, Montserrado County.
The group donated several bags of rice, buckets, Argo oil, clorax and soaps to Ebola survivors in Pianyonkosa and residents of Hotel Africa and Banjor Beach.
Presenting the items on behalf of PROCMURA-Liberia, the Secretary General of Liberia Council of Churches (LCC) James Y. Gayflor said the donation was his organization’s way of identifying with them during this national health crisis.
He said as an institution that cares for the wellbeing of the people, PROCMURA decided to identify with communities that are hit by the Ebola virus so as to assure the residents that they are not alone in their time of calamity.
Mr. Gayflor assured the Ebola survivors and residents of PROCMURA's assistance in the future.
In response, the district representative of the area Rep. William Dakel lauded PROCMURA for the donation noting that since the outbreak of the Ebola virus, over 30 persons have died from the Pianyonkosa Refugee Camp.
Representative Dakel said PROCMURA is the only institution that has identified with residents of the camp.
He said the items would help to put smiles on the faces of the Ebola survivors and residents who do not have any means of survival.
The Ebola survivors hailed PROCMURA-Liberia Area Committee for the donation.
Earlier, Dr. Benjamin D. Lartey said PROCMURA is a Pan African Christian organization dedicated to Christians’ constructive engagement with Muslims in witness, mutual tolerance and collaboration towards peace and peaceful co-existence for the holistic development to human family.
He said the group is the only organization in Africa that stretches hands of friendship to the Muslims community with a vision of a continent where religious communities can live with their differences in peace.
Dr. Lartey said the group would extend its humanitarian assistance to other counties.
