The Liberian Swedish Association, LSA, will host a two-day festivity in Stockholm, Sweden, to commemorate Liberia's July 26th independence day. This event aims to bring Liberians in Sweden together to celebrate and honor Liberia's Independence Day.
The festivity is scheduled to take place on Friday, July 23rd, and Saturday, July 24th respectively. This was announced by Mr. David Ford, President of the LSA during LSA's General Meeting on Saturday, June 26th via Zoom.
