When it comes to putting your money where your mouth is, “Friends of Liberia-Food and Water Project”, formerly known as, “Gospel Train International”, is doing just that. The US-based humanitarian organization that has constructed and dedicated 39 Modern Wells with Hand Pumps, valued more than US$70K since 2021 and up to present in Margibi, Bong, Nimba, Lofa, and Gbarpolu counties, is geared to construct a US$75K Modern Rice Processing Factory in Gbartala, Bong County within four months.

Speaking in an interview last Thursday via mobile phone from America, the Vice President of Friends of Liberia-Food and Water Project, Mr. George Wissing said when completed and dedicated the Rice Processing Factory will serve the needs of more than 100, 000 less fortunate and destitute Liberians mainly, in the Central and Western Regions of Liberia. Mr. George Wissing, named by Liberians, AKA “Mr. Clean Water” paid tribute to his wife, Mrs. Wissing and others for their financial support leading to the construction of the rice factory in Liberia.

“Mr. Clean Water” said when dedicated the rice processing factory in central Liberia will employ many Liberians, and that hundreds of farmer’s in the regions will also benefit by carrying their rice for processing.

“It is my prayer that proceeds received by the farmers from the sale of their rice will help to improve their lives and lift them out of abject poverty”, Mr. George said.

The Vice President for Friends of Liberia-Food and Water Project said, authorities of Friends of Liberia are currently studying the many requests coming out of Southeastern Liberia, especially Sinoe, Grand Kru, River Gee, Grand Gedeh, and Maryland Counties, and said plans were underway for the project to be extended into other parts of Southeastern Liberia, noting, “the more funds we get from kind friends and donors, the more Liberians will benefit from the project”.

Mr. Clean Water said serious plans are underway for Friends of Liberia-Food and Water to construct and dedicate 50 Modern Wells with Hand Pumps every year throughout Liberia. Mr. George speaking on behalf of one of the Chief financiers, his wife, Mrs. George, said they were glad after four years of interactions to be associated with the Chief Executive Officer of the then Gospel Train International, now Friends of Liberia-Food and Water Project, the Methodist Reverend Oliver Adams, a Liberian, because of his commitment, dedication and vision to help lift thousands of less fortunate and destitute Liberians out of poverty.

Friends of Liberia-Food and Water project is currently providing employees of the factory and the well project with worthy monthly salaries and daily meals as a way of also improving the economy of Liberia.
