 The ongoing COVID-19 Household Food Support Program (COHFSP), dedicated to ensuring that vulnerable Liberians and most food insecure communities across the Country are served food rations during the Corona Virus Pandemic is gradually winning the admirations of the public.

The Liberian people’s sense of appreciation for the work being done since the National Steering Committee on the Stimulus Package was set up by the Liberian Government can be seen from the nature of praises being showered on the Liberian Government, through the National Steering Committee on the COVID-19 Household Food Support Program, headed by Commerce and Industry Minister, Prof. Wilson K. Tarpeh.

The jubilant scores of Liberians who continue to hail the Liberian Government, through the National Steering Committee, have repeatedly said they are touched by the ongoing food distribution, describing it as a   dream comes true.

“ What is making  us happy is that prior to the commencement of the food distribution, there were people who told us that the Government was  not going to give us any food during the  COVID-19 Pandemic in the country,” observed some of the food recipients at   separate locations  during the  exercise.

The jubilant scores of food recipients said   they were initially locked up in the state of uncertainty when the Corona virus hit Liberia, relative to how they were going to sustain their respective families.  

They however commended the Liberian Government, through the National Steering Committee, for the level of cooperation amongst members of the Committee and the professional manner in which the food distribution is being executed despite criticism by some individuals in the country.

They, at the same time noted that they are proud of President George M. Weah, for keeping his pronouncement, regarding the food distribution.

They also called on the National Steering Committee, the World Food Program, including all other local and international partners that are constructively involved in the ongoing food distribution not to be deterred by those who continue to spew out negative comments against the National Steering Committee, yea the Liberian Government.

Meanwhile the Chairman of the National Steering Committee on the Stimulus Package, Minister Wilson K. Tarpeh, said the Committee will not be distracted.

Prof. Tarpeh has repeatedly   noted that members of the Committee would continue to executive   the mandate of President George Manneh Weah, by making sure that vulnerable Liberians and most food insecure    communities are given the approved quantity of food items during the COVID-19 Pandemic in the country.

“President Weah is determined to address the concerns of his people and to also transform their lives through constructive measures,” Minister Tarpeh, told a team of journalists recently, at a distribution site in Central Monrovia
