The Association thanked citizens, well-meaning Liberians, and the Bong County Legislative Caucus, led by Representative Maima Briggs for the disaster relief efforts they are undertaking.

Meanwhile, the Association has committed to contribute to current relief efforts and has constituted a National Emergency Disaster Relief Committee to work with local authorities.
