He also made a courtesy visit to Alexander B. Cummings, Jr., Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer of The Coca Cola Company.
When contacted, Ambassador Williams informed us that the meetings were fruitful and that some groups had already made commitments.
Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority have embarked upon a Post Ebola Transitional Service Initiative (Children Focused) to mobilize six to twelve months worth of committed resources and support for two programmatic initiatives intended to impact up to 200 children.
The Alpha organizations will also provide support to family caregivers. This temporary support will be given to family members or other care givers who take on the added responsibility of caring for a child orphaned by Ebola.
Williams concluded by informing his fraternity members that there is no greater love than a brother giving of himself and his resources to help the less fortunate. He said, “we must always remember the aims of our dear fraternity, Manly Deeds, Scholarship and Love for All Mankind”.
