Our Support of Liberia Bridge

094 - CopyFor the past year, Wesley UMC has supported Liberia Bridge, a non-profit project led by Wesley member Donowea Towah that is working to provide school supplies and other educational supports for schools in Liberia. After the delivery of school supplies donated by Wesley UMC was delayed for many months due to the health crisis that faced Liberia over the past year, Donowea shared with all of us that the supplies have been delivered and well received by the young people who need them.

What can seem like a very small donation on our part here – of pencils, notebooks and other supplies – makes a significant difference to these young people.  Liberia Bridge plans to continue supporting these schools with more donation drives, as well as raising funds to help make structural repairs to the building and grounds.
