Community Health Education Services or CHESS-Liberia has trained 100 youths on Ebola awareness in Nimba County. The youths are from border towns between Liberia and Guinea.
Liberia is barely three days away from being declared Ebola freed by the World Health Organization.
The training was intended to enable young people help their respective communities in keeping safe from the Ebola Virus Disease.
It was held under the auspices of the United Nations Mission on Ebola Emergency Response (UNMEER).
Speaking at the close of the training exercise in Bololawee Town, Nimba County, the Project Officer for CHESS-Liberia, Madam Yenpue Nellie Mahn, said the training was intended to teach the youths on how to keep sick people away from community residents, including healthy family members as well as help government in the Ebola fight.
Madam Mahn said the fight against Ebola needs the intervention of all citizens, including young people.
She urged the participants to return to their various communities and educate others on how to avoid getting infected or prevent the spread of the virus.
