Prof Briggs noted that the group’s interactive website www.abonnema solidarity.com would provide information on COVID-19 in English and in local Kalabiri languages on the preventive steps to take in order to avoid contracting the disease.
While answering questions he called on all sons and daughters in the diaspora and at home to generously donate towards the success of the group and the Abonnema.
He said, “I am using the opportunity to call on all sons and daughters of Abonnema, as well as men and women of goodwill to send their contributions either in cash or materials to the appropriate channels as directed in the website.”
