"We plan on collaborating with Liberia's Ministry of Health to get Liberia back on track in a healthy lifestyle. We want to host camps wellness retreats and seminars to the Liberian community and government.
"Because it is new to the people, it is going to be a challenge to introduce the our Healthy Detox Tea Brands, but with the accolades of being a Liberian and Olympian of Liberia, I believe we will overcome the challenges to bring a Healthy LIFESTYLE back home," he said.
