Snowe likens Ellen to Holy Trinity
Montserrado County Electoral District#6 Representative, Edwin Melvin Snowe, Jr. has described President Sirleaf’s role at the recent Ebola summit with US President Barrack Obama in Washington as that of the Holy Trinity in the Bible: Father, Son and the Holy Ghost.
He noted that the Liberian leader represented the three badly Ebola hit countries, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea which is a sign of the Trinity.
Speaking with group of Ebola survivors from his district, Representative Snowe said President Sirleaf and members of the Government here worked hard in the fight against the deadly Ebola Virus.
Meanwhile, the Montserrado County lawmaker has lauded local radio stations and the Liberian media in general for helping with the fight by mobilizing the population and creating awareness across the entire country.
He also thanked the governing Unity Party mobilization chairman during the 2011 Presidential election, businessman Musa Bility, who operates the Truth FM 96.1 and Real TV for offering his media facilities to help spread Ebola messages.
Representative Snowe urged Ebola survivors from District #6 to let the whole world know that Jesus Christ saved them from death, and that they are human beings like every other person in the world.
Survivors here are battling continuous stigmatization from community residents, including relatives and friends.
But the lawmaker said Ebola survivors should not behave like handicaps by going from house to house, begging people, challenging them to make a difference for people to see that God kept them alive for a purpose.
He announced plan to celebrate the successful fight against the Ebola Virus with the survivors next week, if only, he said, Liberian border guards do not allow sick people to enter the country.
Liberia, currently on a 42 days count to be declared Ebola free by the World Health Organization, has already gone near 30 days without report of any new cases in the entire country.
At the ceremony, the District #6 Ebola survivors thanked Representative Snowe for his generous contribution and tireless effort in the fight against the Ebola Virus Disease.
They also appealed to him for assistance in finding remedies to problems of stigmatization and discrimination as well as damaging of their personal belongings, among others.
