Dear Parker Barcolleh
It is indeed pleasing to learn of the humble efforts to keep chess going in Liberia. As a chess family, it is our wish to have countries joining the family. For a start, I am attaching a questionnaire that will help me establish the current reality in Liberia, with regard to chess and activities of your association. It would also be useful to know your membership status with FIDE (the World Chess Federation).
Meanwhile, regarding assistance, there is a potential window that we may use to assist you - Commission for Assistance to Chess Developing Countries (CACDEC). However, I need to first consult with the Commission Chairman.
Once again, thank Daaim for a very noble role in linking me with the rest of Africa.
Given this scenario, it goes without saying that Liberia needs the assistance of all willing federations and players who can donate any of the material listed in the letter above. Months ago Senegal made a similar request and hopefully they (along with Ghana and Liberia) will join the FIDE family. If there are those would like to donate chess sets, books, software can send them to:
