President of the Lebanese Community in Sierra Leone, Mr. Samir Hassaniyeh, has assured His Excellency President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma that as long as the latter continues to implement developmental projects in Sierra Leone, the Lebanese community in this country will also stop at nothing to continue supporting these projects financially or otherwise until they are completed.
Mr. Hassaniyeh made this assurance whilst donating building materials including two tons of Iron rods and two hundred bags of cements worth over twenty million Leone, on behalf of Mercury International, to the Lumley Police Division on Thursday 24th May 2012.

According to the Lebanese boss, his community is well satisfied with developmental strides being undertaken by President Koroma and his government. For this reason he went on, they will continue to lend their financial and moral support to any developmental project undertaken in the country.
Donating the building materials, Mr. Hassaniyeh congratulated the Lumley Police Division for undertaking the construction of a modern police division. He cited that, months back, on behalf of the Lebanese community, he donated thirty million Leones to the project, adding that, he is now presenting the building materials on behalf of Mercury International to the same project. He used the forum to plead to the police hierarchy to continue maintaining Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP) Alhaji Gibril Kabba Kamara as Local Unit Commander for the Lumley Police Division. According to him, CSP Kabba Kamara has proved that he has all what it takes to maintain security within the divisionís jurisdiction. Mr. Hassaniyeh ended by further assuring their committee towards a successful completion of the Lumley project and other developmental projects across the country.
