First lady Clar Marie Weah of Liberia has hailed the gesture from China to the Clar Hope Foundation, as a "demonstration of true partnership" between the two countries.

On Tuesday, China donated a 15-seater bus as well as assorted food items, school materials including tablet computers, and "kits of love bags" for children to the first lady's foundation.

First lady Weah said her foundation is very passionate about delivering joy and hope, and seeing constructive and positive advancement in the lives of Liberian women and girls.

"Our partnership with the Chinese government and its people is one that continues to see these kinds of gestures of significance and I want to tell you that such makes me humbly gratified. The government of the People's Republic of China and its embassy have always supported in great ways the work of the office of the first lady and the Clar Hope Foundation; a foundation that is very passionate about bringing joy and hope and seeing women's and girl's constructive advancement more positively," Weah said.

Weah noted that assistance from China would change the lives of thousands of Liberians, especially women and girls.

When presenting the items, Chinese Ambassador to Liberia Ren Yisheng said the gesture was in appreciation and support of the great humanitarian work first lady Clar Marie Weah continues to do through her foundation for the underprivileged people of Liberia.

"We appreciate all the useful work done by the Clar Hope Foundation for the vulnerable groups; the young women, children and seniors of Liberia," Ren said.
