George Weah’s Final Campaign Message 

On Saturday, December 23, 2017, the Coalition for Democratic Change, Liberia’s biggest opposition political party, climaxed its campaign activity, with a huge rally.

The rally was held at the Samuel K. Doe Sports Complex in Paynesville, outside Monrovia.  Thousands of partisans and supporters from the Coalition and other collaborating parties, were fully represented.

 Delivering his final campaign message, Weah emphasized on the reality faced daily by the masses.

 Weah: “Fellow Liberians Tuesday would be the day that you Liberians would decide whether you want to move forward or remain backward. Tuesday would be the day when you’ll decide whether your young brothers and sisters [would continue] moving around in the streets asking people to give them WAEC fees; Tuesday would be a day that you would make a decision for students from university, from high school will move from office to office-to-ask for school fees. Tuesday would be the day that you’ll choose for your family to have food or not to have food.”


 Weah said a CDC-led government would invest in the improvement of agriculture as its means of creating jobs and boosting the economy.


 He told the crowd of jubilant supporters that his vision is to see children of all walks of life get access to free education.


 “This is reality, we want you to go to hospital free if you don’t have funds because it’s your right. We’re not going to tell you things that we know that cannot do. The coalition that I’m in is a coalition that would work for you,” he stated.


 According to the CDC standard bearer, the Coalition envisages Liberians working in their own government, pay tax and contribute to the development of the state.


 He criticized the ruling party for making elaborate campaign promises, noting that they were given 10 years in leadership, but are yet to make any remarkable achievement.


 “Joseph Boakai has failed us, Unity Party-led government has failed us; you need to listen to people that care about you,” he said.

Meet Alice Sumo, the midwife who has 1,000 babies named after her in Liberia

Alice Sumo is a respected nurse in Liberia where she has been a midwife for nearly three decades.  She was so loved and respected in Montserrado County that 1,000 babies have been named after her.
Alice, whose name means 'peace', has worked through the civil war and Ebola to do her job. She delivered her first baby at gun point at the side of the road.  In her three-decade career, she did not stop working even during the epidemic which claimed nearly 5,000 lives in Liberia in 2014 and 2015.  New mothers who Alice has cared for and supported through their pregnancy have called their daughters after her or if it's a boy, named him Alex. 
Alice now runs a maternal health center opened by Save the Children in her rural community. The children are a living testament to the impact Alice has had in Liberia.
