A former superintendent of Grand Gedeh County wants people mixing the fight of the deadly Ebola Virus Disease in the Country with politics to desist if more lives must be saved. Mr. Christopher Bailey said Ebola was real and needed complete togetherness to battle it out of the Country.
The former Grand Gedeh Superintendent noted that being a patriotic citizen of Liberia, he felt the rumor about the generation of funds by the government from partners was far from the reality.
Mr. Bailey made the statement at the end of a three- day Training of Trainers’ workshop for farmers and forest users on the Response to the Ebola Virus Disease organized by the Food and Agriculture Organization or FAO, along with the Liberian Government, which took place in Gbarnga, Bong County recently.
Mr. Bailey, at the same time, called on the participants to make use of the knowledge acquired at the community level in order to eradicate the deadly Virus.he lauded the FAO and Government of Liberia for their farsightedness in organizing the training, adding that the knowledge would massively help community residents in combating the virus.
Some of the participants, who spoke with journalists, expressed their willingness to spread the awareness messages to their communities, noting that the fight against the virus was everyone’s responsibility. They, then, appealed to the FAO and Government to make available some logistical support to tour the various towns and villages to sensitize community dwellers about the Ebola Virus.
