The Kolu Sokodolo International Academy is an institution in Margibi County that provides free education opportunity to over 300 students in the county.
Accordingly, the exercise, which is expected to be conducted on the campus of the institution on Friday, January 17, 2020, is in continuation of Firestone-Liberia and CSI collaboration to provide surgical treatments to Liberian children.
The joint mission is part of Firestone-Liberia and CSI activities in working in communities outside of the company to administer deworming medication to children. It is expected that more than 4,000 children will be treated during the joint CSI and Firestone-Liberia deworming exercise.
Since the first surgical mission in 2010, the joint mission have provided free of charge surgeries to more than 900 patients - benefiting children and young adults in Firestone and surrounding communities.
Speaking to reporters ahead of the exercise, the Country Director of the Kolu Sokodolo Children Foundation, Mr. Shine Gbelemah, described the mission’s visit at his school as a lauded initiative.
“We are happy that our school is being selected for this great medical outreach mission. We are happy because we are going to benefit, since our children are going to benefit,” said Gbelemah.
He also lauded the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of the school, Madam Kolu Garmai Sokodolo Walters and husband Bishop Moses Walters, for their love to Liberian children, especially in the area of education.
