We (the Mahs) left our birth country, Liberia, for the Ivory Coast to seek refuge from the civil war.
We lived in the Ivory Coast from December 3, 1996 to November 12, 2002. Our departure from the Ivory Coast was due to the outbreak of another rebel war in the at country. we escaped to Guinea for refuge.
Our stay in Guinea lasted a year and we moved to the US for resettlement or family reunion through the UN and Lutheran Social Services.
Our decision to cook is based on our belief that food can help to bridge the gap between people. When people begin to have nice tastes of hour meal, friendship follows . Then, whatever ill feeling they may have had are reduced.
Therefore, we pray and hope our preparations will add to existing food in the Grand Forks community.
We are pleased to extend our thanks and appreciation to be able to contribute to the community.
