This according to the President of the Nimba Development Association of Indiana Nyah Vululleh, will create a positive impact on the lives of others in Liberia.
Speaking at a thanksgiving event organized in honor of the unison demonstrated by the Nimba Community in the State of Indiana, Vululleh noted that giving back home will enable Liberians back home to share in their blessings and foster a spirit of generosity and kindness.
“let us not forget the importance of giving back. Thanksgiving is not only a time for receiving, but also a time for giving. As members of the Liberian Community of Indiana, we have a unique opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of others,” Vululleh averred.
“Let us extend a helping hand to those in need, share our blessings, and foster a spirit of generosity and kindness.”
He said as Nimbians and Liberians at large in Indiana gathered to celebrate the spirit of thanksgiving, he was filled with immense gratitude for the vibrant and resilient community that has been built in Indiana and that it was time to reflect on the blessings, express appreciation, and come together as one united family.
Vululleh further noted that in the face of challenges and adversities, Nimbians in Indiana have shown remarkable strength, determination, and the ability to uplift one another.
He said: “Our Nimba community is a testament to the power of unity, compassion, and the shared values that bind us together.”
However, he believed, a Thanksgiving event of such, should be used as a moment to express intense gratitude for the opportunities they have found in the state of Indiana.
Vululleh stated that Nimbians are fortunate to live in a land that embraces diversity, celebrates multiculturalism, and offers a platform to thrive and contribute to society.
“Let us also remember our roots and the rich heritage that we carry with us. Our Liberian traditions, customs, and values are a source of pride and strength,” he added.
“They have shaped our character, instilled resilience, and continue to guide us as we navigate the journey of life.”
The Nimba Development Association of Indiana President then extends gratitude to what he considers, “the countless individuals” who have accordingly supported them along the way.
He added: “Our families, friends, and community leaders have been pillars of strength, offering guidance, encouragement, and a sense of belonging.”
According to him, the unwavering support of these personalities has been instrumental in their personal growth and collective success.
Moreover, Vululleh expressed gratitude to the association’s members for their contributions, and resilience which he said have enriched the Liberian Community in Indiana and helped make Indiana a better place to call home.
He at the same time called on his institution members to cherish the bonds that unite them to celebrate their achievements, and look forward to a future filled with hope, prosperity, and continued unity.
