We will always try to perform our corporate social responsibility as much as we can,” Mr. He noted.Taking delivery of the consignment the Commissioner of the Township of Caldwell, Madam Alexine Howard said the effort by the group is highly appreciated because Caldwell is a township in dare need of such assistance.“For you to take this time and think of these children means a lot to the government and people of Caldwell because orphans are children who often need care and support,” she said.Commissioner Howard expressed gratitude to the Chinese Chamber of Commerce for the donation which would be used for the intended purpose.Relationship between Liberia and China (PR) has improved over the years as evidence by a recent high-powered Chinese business delegation’s visit to Liberia seeking new partnership and cooperation with Liberian entrepreneurs in the areas of agriculture, infrastructure and agriculture.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img
