The Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection extends heartfelt birthday greetings to our Feminist-In-Chief, His Excellency Dr. George Manneh Weah, President of the Republic of Liberia.
Through your wisdom and astute leadership, you have championed the rights of women, girls, children, and other vulnerable people by signing into law the Domestic Violence Act of 2019 and the endorsement of the “Government of Liberia & Partners’ Anti- SGBV Roadmap 2020-2022” aimed at addressing rape and other sexual and gender-based violence by 2022.
On this day of your 54th birth anniversary, you are again selflessly sharing your special day by giving more women the equal opportunity to serve in a lead capacity in your government. We join the many voices to THANK YOU for declaring rape as a National Emergency with several other measures, including the appointment of a Special Prosecutor for rape, the setting up of a National Sex Offender Registry, the establishment of a National Security Taskforce on SGBV, and the allotment of an initial amount of Two Million United States Dollars for the rolling-out of the Anti-SGBV Roadmap.
We pray for God’s continuous wisdom upon your blessed life as you steer the affairs of our beloved Country.
Happy 54th Birth Anniversary!
