Updated: Feb 23

On Saturday, March 30, 2019, a significant milestone was achieved as the Liberian Swedish Association (LSA) inaugurated its newest branch, LSA Norrland, catering to Liberians residing in cities from Sundsvall and further north in Sweden. The event drew a diverse crowd, including LSA President Mr. David Ford, Vice President Mrs. Koo Yelegon Joseph, and numerous Liberians, Africans, and Swedes.

Mr. Ford took the opportunity to express gratitude to all attendees for their dedication and contributions in bringing the day to fruition. He used his remarks to appeal to Liberians in Sweden, urging them to refrain from spreading hateful messages about Liberia, its president, or its government on social media platforms. Instead, he emphasized the importance of unity and prayer for the betterment of the nation.

Vice President Mrs. Joseph echoed similar sentiments, stressing the importance of solidarity and support among Liberians in Sweden. She encouraged attendees to extend assistance to fellow Liberians facing challenging circumstances back in Liberia.

In his closing remarks, newly appointed Chairman Weah Harris of the LSA Norrland branch urged everyone present to remain determined in their endeavors, highlighting the role of determination in achieving success. He credited the establishment of the LSA Norrland branch to the collective determination and support of the national leadership of LSA.

The ceremony concluded with a celebratory dinner and dance, featuring lively music curated by DJ Sporting, marking the beginning of a new chapter for Liberians in northern Sweden under the banner of LSA Norrland.
