The Central Bank Staff Association (CEBSA) on Friday, held a one day thanksgiving service to give thanks to God for carrying them through the Ebola crisis.
During a program held at the banking hall of the Central Bank of Liberia (CBL) in Monrovia, the chairman for publicity, Julius A. Kekula, said the thanksgiving was intended to give God the honor for taking almost all of them through successfully during the outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus disease (EVD).
“As a family, we also remember our beloved and dear workmate, Sister Sarah Smith, who died during the heat of the Ebola crisis. Sister Sarah was a strong, hardworking staff member of CBL,” Mr. Kekula said.
He noted that this was the best time to give thanks to God and to recognize the late Sister Smith.
He said the late Sister Smith was the only person that the CBL lost to the deadly Ebola virus. Mr. Kerkula expressed his deepest condolences to others who also lost loved ones, family members and friends to the EVD.
“We have also decided to give a purse to the family of the late Smith as a way of remembering our own staff who was very diligent in service delivery. We lost someone that was willing to give all her time to the CBL, especially working in the banking department,” he added.
All the staff of the CBL as well as some family members who attended the thanksgiving service prayed that God would continue to bless the CBL family.
“The CBL continues to ensure that its staff are active in delivering the required services to the people of Liberia,” noted Mr. Kekula.
