In his remarks, Amb. Zhou pointed out that during the procurement of the materials, ACWF fully consulted with their Liberia counterpart and adjusted the items several times in order to best meet the requirements of the Liberian Gender Ministry. The sum of the assistance was not big, said the Ambassador, but it reflected the friendly sentiments of the Chinese Women to the Liberian Women and their support to Women's cause in Liberia. He also expressed the hope that the donation would do help in promoting the women's cause here.

For her part, Minister Gayflor thanked ACWF for its valuable support to Liberian women.
