MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The Past President of Rotary in Great Britain and Ireland has ended a visit to Liberia, hosted by the Rotary Club of Monrovia.

Ms. Debbie Hodge originated a Rotary Action Group against Slavery and currently leads Rotary’s global efforts to support the Mercy Ships medical mission work.

During the visit to ongoing projects, Rotary Club members accompanied Ms. Hodge to the Mother Pattern College of Health Sciences, where an ongoing healthcare workers scholarship has graduated over sixty professionals.

Other activities included a site visit to the Liberia Learning Center at the Paynesville Town Hall-a project under construction in partnership with Empowerment Squared and supported by the Rotary Foundation and clubs in Liberia and Canada.

Past President David Frankfort led coordination of the visit and stated, “It has been a bonus having Debbie in Liberia to explore ways to further support Rotary’s efforts in Liberia”.

Rotarian Mai Bright-Urey, current President of the Rotary Club of Monrovia, also expressed her excitement at the exposure and opportunities provided.

Rotarian Bright-Urey said:” The visit of Rotarian Debbie has also afforded members of the organization to personally connect with a Rotary leader with whom they have already partnered.”
