The institutions include: Farmer Friends of Liberia Inc.(FFL), Center for Our Common Future (CCF), Center for Advocacy Resource and
Development (CARD), Orphan Concern Liberia (ORCON-LIB), Top Developer Technology Solution (TDS) and Citizens Initiative for Total Empowerment (CITE).
Speaking to reporters, Project Remember Us Coordinator, Fofee B.W Siryon, commended the bank for coming to their calls and appreciated their effort.
According to him, the consortium of seven civil society institutions decided to lobby with their local and international partners to construct the facility to memorialize all those who have fallen prey to the Ebola epidemic.

He called on other institutions to assist them launch the program and begin construction work on January 24, 2015.
