Chinese firm aims to build "artificial hair hub" in Liberia



President George Weah has welcomed a visiting Chinese business delegation whose aim is to set up an artificial hair factory in the west African country.
A statement from the Liberian president's office on Tuesday confirmed that Weah met with the Chinese business team late Monday.
The delegation, from central China's Henan Ruimei artificial hair production firm, said it intends to use Liberia as a hub for artificial hair production in Africa.
The establishment of its factory in Liberia will create jobs for 3,000 to 5,000 local people within three years, according to the Chinese firm.
To start with, about 500 initial employees, mostly young women under 25, will be needed as initial workforce when production commences, the firm said.
The firm also said it will train 20 or more young Liberian women in China ahead of its operation in Liberia.
Weah commended the Chinese delegation for expressing interest to invest in the country.
He further thanked the delegation for the opportunity given to young Liberians to travel to China for skills acquisition in artificial hair production.

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.
