The Liberian government is appealing for humanitarian aid to provide relief to victims and bereaved families of the affected mudslide community in Nimba.
Yesterday, February 18 was designated as a national mourning day after at least 40 alleged illegal gold miners were trapped following an unexpected mudslide that occurred recently in Gbanipea, Nimba.
The Armed Forces of Liberia could not practically repel attacks mounted by Guinea, Sierra Leone, Ivory Coast, or other regional countries, not to mention countries with highly equipped militaries. Think about this – if Liberia were to be attacked right now by another country, we would not, in all seriousness, depend on our army to protect us. Instead, we would appeal to the United States, ECOWAS, or the United Nations, to help us or levy sanctions against that country.
The National Disaster Management Agency has completed a meeting with disaster relief and coordination stakeholders to formulate a national communications strategy for disaster and risk reduction in Liberia.
