Also on June 5, 2015, Montserrado County Senator, Geraldine Doe Sheriff was invited to the site by LIWOMAC’s President, T. Estella nelson as part of efforts to mobilize support for the construction of a shorter road to lead to the facilities. Senator Doe-Sheriff, having toured the site promised to lobby her colleagues at the National Legislature to adopt the road project as a Montserrado Legislative Caucus project. She said the need for women in the area to have access to road and other basic social services must be seen as a priority. She expressed hope that LWDR would champion the cause of women in the area and flag their issues.
The Montserrado County Senator then pledged two hundred thousand Liberian dollars to facilitate the start of the road project and donated ten thousand Liberian dollars to be used to clear the road before the main construction work starts. The Senator also promised to construct a hand pump in the community and pledged a set of jersey and football to the young people of that community.
Responding, LIWOMAC’s President, T. Estella Nelson thanked Senator Doe-Sheriff, but at the same time urged the government to move swiftly to ease the prevailing situation. She believes the relocation of LIWOMAC to the community must serve as a relief to inhabitants, especially if it brings development such as the construction of the road, water facilities and other basic social services.
LIWOMAC intends to work with authorities to construct a bridge over the swamp for shorter and easy access to the facilities.
