Liberia’s Ambassador to France C. William Allen has been praised for the level of unity, cooperation and support he has given to the Liberian community in the European country over the years.

Executives of the Liberian Mandingo Association in France (LIMAF) said Ambassador Allen has renewed hope and understanding as well as the promotion of cultural values and unity that has encouraged growth and oneness in the community where brotherly love and institutional development has improved.

Speaking they paid a courtesy visit on Ambassador Allen recently, the group’s chairman, Layee Bamba said members of the Liberian community were happy that the embassy was in total support of their programs and has demonstrated love and support for their future activities, both in France and Liberia.

Mr. Bamba said Liberians across France need to come together in one accord and unite for the enhancement of future programs and activities of all Liberians under a single umbrella and a single goal.

LIMAF’s Secretary General Ansu-Mariam Dukuly said Ambassador Allen and the Liberian Embassy staff have been supportive of the humanitarian programs of the organization and at the same time have made them feel a part of the larger Liberian community in Europe and other parts of the world. 

Mr. Dukuly said LIMAF will remain engaged with the embassy at all times to foster cooperation and unity as well as other Liberian groups in France and Europe on a common agenda aimed at promoting national development.

Ambassador Allen, in brief remarks, thanked the executives and members of LIMAF for the courtesy visit and commended the new leadership on their recent election and subsequent induction.

Ambassador Allen called on them to unite and work closely with every member of the old leadership and other members of the Liberian community as a means of forging a single goal and single agenda.

He assured that both the embassy and his doors will remain open to them when they need his help, his advice and his participation in any programs they might be initiating.

Accompanying the executives were LIMAF elders and Advisory and Youth Councils members.
