Friends for the Future

Friends for the Future joins the Monrovia City Corporation to Clean Clara Town and its surroundings; A group under the banner “Friends for the Future” on Saturday joined team of MCC employees to clean the densely populated community of Clara Town. The cleanup exercise was part of the “Weah for Clean Cities” first Saturday clean up exercise which has now become a common practice across the country. The “Weah for Clean Cities” first Saturday exercise which started in Monrovia in March, launched by President George Manneh Weah and his wife Madam Clar Weah has taken a center stage in major cities. In Monrovia, residents are mandated by the Monrovia City Government to remain at their various homes, businesses including communities to clean their surroundings as a way of promoting a clean, green and safe city. Like the 3F, usually patriotic and nationalistic youth organizations are seeing in their respective communities and most often partnering with the MCC to clean Monrovia as part of their contributions to society. Friends for the Future, a group of over three hundred youth volunteers along with the Monrovia City Corporation team visited corners of Clara Town, sweeping and cleaning filthy drainages. The Clara Town Market piled up with huge garbage was also targeted. Group members including Ali Sayli, Vallai Dorley and Abraham Dorley said it was good partnering with the MCC to clean Clara Town and also cautioned community dwellers to consistently clean communities they live. They said the burden of cleaning Monrovia should not be an exclusive responsibility of the Monrovia City Government but collective effort of every well-meaning citizen. Friends for the Future members have promised to always partner with the MCC to Clean Monrovia by decentralizing their clean up exercises in slum communities including West Point, New Kru Town, Soni Wien amongst others. The cleanup exercise was simultaneously done in the Monrovia City Corporation Solid Waste Southern, Northern and Central Regions.
