The head of ULOUK Humanitarian committee Pastor Akoi Massayan Bazzie has stepped down from his position as head of ULOUK Humanitarian Committee. Pastor Bazzie stepped down on the 26 of February 2022. In a letter sent to the President of ULOUK, Mr Mo Sonnie and a copy of which was sent to the Secretariat of this organisation, pastor Bazzie expressed great sentiment and gratitude to the leadership of ULOUK for granting him the opportunity to serve his community and people but on the sad note, he said ‘I have to step down to attend to personal and family matters. His resignation letter was received by the leadership with mixed emotions cognisant of his brilliance and expertise, and the hard work he brought to the organisation, especially the Humaniratin committee in a short space of time. His letter has since been accepted by the leadership while UKOUK seeks for his replacement.

Celebrate, Dance & Have Fun in Sheffield. But hurry as T- sales is now on
2022 Liberia’s Independent Day & Bicentennial celebrations will be held in the city of Sheffied.
The logic behind hosting PALAVA HUT meetings in the UK is simple, but its implementations require lots of effort and commitments, and with the Covid 19 thwarting our efforts since the first event in Sheffield, November 23 2019, we can only hold our breath for it to continue without further setbacks. The Coventry palava hut meeting was indeed a successful one, attended by like-minded Liberians from every corner of the UK to convey a message to The Union of Liberian Organisations in the UK(ULOUK) and its leadership on issues captivating human welfare in the UK and Liberia. The leadership of the Union hereby echoing congratulations and many thanks to the Embassy of the Republic of Liberia accredited to the Court of St. James who sent three representatives for the gathering, the people of Coventry and all well-wishers who converged of the city of Coventry for such a unique gathering.
President Mo Sonnie and his team of cohort including the AGM Chair, Zinnah Darkinah, Vice President Klade Neufville, Secretary-General Roland Kesselly Ballah among others were at the meeting. It is with overwhelming hope and indeed expectation that the leadership will continue to host these events in different communities within the UK to enable us to hear from Liberians residing in the UK to express what is needed to help move our community to another peak, and how we all could work together in a minimal or otherwise to help our citizens back home in Liberia. The meeting was indeed very fruitful and congratulations to Mr Henry David and family and the entire organisers of the event. The food was very yummy 🙂
