Donation and Support of Liberia Cement Corporation (Cemenco)

BTFS-CEMENCO Partnership on Course

Liberia’s giant producer in cement has agreed to provide 1,200 bags of cements to help implement the water and sanitation project at ICA. The agreement follows the climax of a discussion between BTFS President Felix Walz and its Administrator Hamnson Gaye among other figures. The discussion was far initiated by Rotary members in Switzerland with the head of Liberia Cement Corporation (CEMENCO). Walz named the gesture by the Liberian cement producer as helpful and a great move to implementation of the NGO pilot project at SD Cooper Community, Paynesville.
