Rural women want help for Ebola survivors

Rural women of Margibi County are calling on the Partnership for Research on Ebola Virus in Liberia or PREVAIL, and all Liberians to extend their services to Ebola survivors in the interior of Liberia.

PREVAIL is an organization involved in reintegrating Ebola survivors as well as focuses on the natural history study of the virus. Speaking recently at the Conqueror School Campus along the Bong Mines Road in Kakata, Margibi County during a one-day interactive forum organized by PREVAIL, the head of the Margibi Rural Women, said there are lots of places in the county that where highly hit by Ebola such as Buquelleh, Dolo Town, Joe Blow Town and Zeo, among other towns and they need urgent help.

Madam Janka Clark added everything that is happening to survivors in Monrovia and its environs are also happening to survivors in the rural parts of the country so they too deserve help to enable them live a better life like any other citizen.

According to her, Ebola survivors in rural Liberia need assistance from PREVAIL and all other NGOs as well as well-meaning Liberians. Madam Clark said if Ebola survivors in the bushes are engaged, they will definitely know that there are people, who care about them, which will give them a sign of hope.

Liberia has over 3,000 Ebola survivors across the country, who look up to government and non-governmental organizations for assistance.
