A one-day workshop aimed at educating young women about the deadly Ebola virus has ended in Salala, lower Bong County. The workshop, organized and facilitated by Project Committee International or PCI, was held recently at the Madam Tubman compound in Salala, bringing together 34 participants, all females.
Speaking at the close of the workshop, Madam Winifred Saah of PCI, who is one of the health and nutrition coordinators, said the workshop was purposely held for women, noting that it is easier to transmit information thru them, particularly virus disease.
She said based on request from the Bosh-Bosh Women of Salala, the workshop was organized to educate them on preventive tips against the Ebola virus. Madam Daniworllie said initially, most women doubted the existence of the virus, but with the help of educative workshops, they will learn more about the virus.
She cautioned the participants to adhere to hands washing regularly, and avoid touching dead bodies, urging, “If you can prevent yourself, you can also prevent your children, families, communities, and nation from contracting the virus.’’ Speaking after the training, two of the participants, Sata Daniworllie and Erina Does highlighted the knowledge acquired from the workshop.
