SIMBA Energy Provides Social Update & Announces Twitter / Facebook Accounts
Vancouver, BC, Simba Energy Inc. (the “Company”) (TSX-V: SMB) provides the following update on its Humanitarian Society’s activities in Liberia.
During the past year, Simba Energy Liberia, Inc., as part of its continuing Social Welfare Program, had its employees visit the medical clinics in our designated Reconnaissance Permit area to inquire as to medical supplies needed in their clinics. Based on the supply list provided, Simba Energy purchased supplies specifically for each individual medical clinic and then management and staff visited the clinics to deliver these supplies. Local community leaders and healthcare providers and villagers turned out to express their gratitude and appreciation. Country Manager, George Garteh extended Simba’s wish of good health to everyone in the surrounding communities.
This is the second year that Simba Energy has provided Social Welfare to the local communities in the permitted area. Last year the program included medical supplies similar to this year and also provided building repairs and supplies to schools in the area. Phase two of this year’s Social Welfare Program will again provide assistance to schools in these communities. This Social Welfare program is part of Simba Energy’s pledge to contribute to the communities in which we work.
In June, 2010, the Simba Energy Humanitarian Society contributed building materials needed to start construction of a new health clinic in Caldwell. It is expected that roof construction will begin in April of this year, which Simba Energy Humanitarian Society has agreed to provide the necessary roofing materials.
Robert Dinning, President, CEO & Director commented that “The Simba Energy Humanitarian Society is a non-profit organization created to carry out Simba Energy’s corporate social responsibilities. The Simba Energy Humanitarian Society focuses on and assists the communities in Africa where Simba Energy has exploration interests.”
Simba Energy is also pleased to announce that it has joined the social media communities of Twitter and Facebook. You can find us at:
