Boikai, The Speaker and Members of the Legislature; the Chief Justice and members of the Judiciary, The Director General and members of the Board of the National Lottery Authority and all peace-loving Liberians.

Speaking on behalf of the beneficiaries, the Executive Director of the group Orphan Concern Liberia Amos Sawboh thanked Winners Inc. for their continuous assistance towards orphans in the country through his organization.

Sawboh described the donation as timely, in the right direction and one that will greatly benefit the over 74 orphans at the two targeted orphanages.

'He kicked me in the stomach, I peed on myself. He body-slammed me to the floor twice and told me he would kill me, no one will find my body.: In her journey to recovery, domestic violence survivor Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman tells it all

The tragic story of Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman, like that of Agnes Yarlee and Diane Hart before her, has brought the issue of domestic abuse out of the dark unspoken place it thrives and into the open.
It's horrendous that it takes the death of women, or an attempt to kill women, to get a serious debate  on the issue of domestic abuse.

But these women mention above are just the tip of the iceberg.


Defying the odds, Mrs. Dennis-Freeman refuses to keep her mouth shut and go with the flow of the Liberian society.  She courageously sat in a wheel chair up to 1:30am, sharing her story with C Liberia Clearly.  In her own words, she walked us through the day that led to her horrific story.

At the La Pa Grill on 6th Avenue in downtown Helena, Collins and other members of the self-described “progressive ticket” watched and waited for the results of the 2017 election.
