The Vice President for Operations for Golden Veroleum Liberia Inc. (GVL), Viganeswaran Ponnudyrai says that the company is willing to go beyond oil palm production by contributing to the social welfare of Liberians throughout the country.
Mr. Ponnudyrai made the disclosure recently when the company donated US$10,000 to rehabilitate ten hand pumps in nine communities in the southeastern region of Sinoe County.
The recent outbreak of caterpillars in that region prompted the company to come to the aid of the communities that had their crops destroyed and water polluted by the infestation.
The Golden Veroleum Team headed by Mr. Ponnudyrai also sprayed the infested areas and in addition donated 10 pieces of B15 Knapsack spray cans to the Ministry of Agriculture Technical Team to fight the infestation.
For his part, the Paramount Chief of Upper Nimupoh, Jackson Quaih extended appreciation to the management of GVL and promised to use the hand pumps wisely.
The towns that benefitted from the GVL gesture were Charlie, Barh, Wiahdoe, Kayeedia, Chozon, Kegbeh, Johnie and Kamah Towns.
Meanwhile, the GVL team headed by the company's vice president was confronted by several students from the Wiahdoe Elementary School who called on the company to help rehabilitate their school.
Shortly after the call by the students for the rehabilitation of their school, Vice President Ponnudyrai and his team turned over the six-classroom elementary school along with fifty wooden desks to the town.
During the school's turning over ceremony, GVL's Vice President said that the company takes importance in education as education leads to a vibrant economic atmosphere.
Wiahdoe Elementary School's Principal, Issac Welloh commended the company for its contribution to the human development of Sinoe County, adding that the 250 students that are enrolled in the school from surrounding towns and villages are greatly pleased with what GVL is doing for them and the county.
In other developments, the oil palm giant Golden Veroleum Liberia has provided a first aid clinic at the Kpanyan Nursery to help Liberians living in that part of the country obtain access to good health.
Nurse Aid, Moses Quiah from the clinic said that the clinic would surely help many inhabitants in the community and nearby communities from traveling a long distance to Greenville, Sinoe County for treatment.
Golden Veroleum Liberia has continued to come to the call of Liberians by contributing to the infrastructural, economical and human development of the country, which ultimately will help reduce poverty in Liberia.
