local people by providing medical, educational and nutritional necessities.
Funding will be deposited on an ongoing basis to meet the needs of our
agreements with government and short- and long-term goals," said Morris.
The Society's social programs are being coordinated on the ground in
GXX's permit area by Hassan Hassan, who is being assisted in the
implementation of the Society's projects by GXX's Liberian staff.
"The Society has an office and Liberian staff in-place in Monrovia, the
capital, who have already begun working in the permit area by documenting
needs and potential solutions," said Morris. "Marshall City in Margibi county
is the first city the Society is beginning its social programs with projects
such as repairing water wells and assisting schools and medical clinics
