The United States-based Association of Bong Miners (ABM) is hoping to raise about $40,000, during its annual convention next month, to support its hospital project in Liberia.

The fund raising effort will be one of the highlights of the ABM convention which is scheduled for July 6-8.

ABM’s public relations director Irfred Kaine told Nordic Africa News that “we are currently assisting the former Bong Mining Company hospital in Liberia with medical supplies and other stuffs.”

He added that the event which is scheduled for Charlotte, North Carolina will be attended by ABM members from “Europe, Asia, Africa, Canada and the 52 states in the US.” ABM is made up of former residents of the Liberian mining town of Bong Mines.

According to information released by the association, the event begins with a meet and greet night at Tropix Bar and Lounge on Friday July 6. 

On Saturday, there will be a whole day of activities, which will include a business meeting, sports events, tours and a banquet at the Plaza Extension to raise funds for the hospital.

The festivities end on Sunday with a prayer service at the same venue as the banquet.
