Canadian Oil Company Announces Humanitarian Aid Goals for Liberia, West Africa

VANCOUVER, June 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — The people in Liberia, West Africa, will soon benefit from a Canadian oil company’s humanitarian program that will focus on providing medical assistance to that part of the African continent.

Gold Star Humanitarian Society (GSHS), a West African aid group organized within Gold Star Resources Corp. (OTC Bulletin Board: GXXFF; TSX-V; GXX; www.goldstarresources.com), today formally announced its medical assistance goals in Liberia in 2009 and 2010. These medical aid goals include the following:

  • Provide generators to medical clinics along with fuel vouchers;
  • Provide medical prescription medicines such as anti-malaria and typhoid;
  • Provide suitable medical instruments and supplies;
  • Sponsor medical training of mid-wives and nurses;
  • Repair and/or build new medical clinics;
  • Build community latrines;
  • Sponsor student health worker scholarships.

According to Patrick Morris, Chairman and CEO of both Gold Star Humanitarian Society and Gold Star Resources Corp., “The time is long overdue for oil and gas companies, large and small, to look beyond just the resource wealth in West Africa. Companies must also help the local people and provide West African communities with medical programs and activities that can help them. The people of Liberia are especially in need of medical aid. Our own humanitarian effort seeks to contribute to a better way of life for Liberians. In the months to come, we will seek to expand our assistance to include medical, educational, and nutritional necessities in Liberia.”
