A nongovernmental group- the Independent Civil Society Network of Liberia (ICSNEL), has honored the Executive Director of Street Child- Liberia, Mr. John Bull, for his robust and invaluable contributions toward the containment of the ravaging Ebola epidemic, through the provision of an assortment of anti-Ebola materials to various communities, as well as identifying with survivors of the disease.
ICSNEL strongly expressed the belief that the country could not have been declared Ebola-free had it not been for the magnanimous contributions of institutions, including Street Child- Liberia which was actively involved in the process of ensuring that the EVD is defeated.
Street Child- Liberia has, over the past years, been engaged in programs geared toward bringing hope to the hopeless, with specific reference to abandoned and destitute children from all walks of life throughout the Country.
The fight to contain the Ebola virus was more collective than individualistic- a time that Liberians, along with other partners, consolidated to a larger extent for the containment of the virus that will forever be remembered for the level of backwardness it caused the country- prompting the forceful closure of schools, as well as imposing a compulsory break for hundreds of civil servants.
Mr. Bull said he was grateful to ICSNEL for the honor, promising to do more for the people of Liberia. By Bridgett Milton – Edited by George Barpeen
