….. Donates facemask, buckets, hand sanitizers
Against the backdrop of the rapid spread of the Coronavirus in Liberia, the Center for Conflict Prevention and Peacebuilding (CECPAP) has kicked off its quick impact project by donating facemasks, washing hands buckets, and hand sanitizers to several schools, worship centers, marketplaces, barbershops, among others, in Monrovia and its environs.
Apart from the donation, the Center is also sensitizing Liberians about the danger the virus poses to their health, and what they need to do to keep safe.
According to a press release issued in Monrovia, other counties, apart from Montserrado, that are expected to benefit from CECPAP’s gesture are Margibi, Bong, and Grand Bassa.
The objective of the Center’s Coronavirus quick impact project, according to a release, is to assist Liberians to stop the rapid spread of the virus in the country.
The release quotes the Center’s Executive Director, Mr. Charles Crawford, as saying that his institution is pleased to be part of the coronavirus prevention awareness campaign.
He said the fight against the Coronavirus involves the input of every meaningful Liberian and institution.
Mr. Crawford laments that the latest reports from the Liberian health sector on the new variant along with its rapid spread among the citizenry is alarming.
The CECPAP's boss argues that why it is true that his institution believes that financial and material supports are needed to fight the new variant of the coronavirus discovered in Liberia, notwithstanding, the need to massively educate and sensitize Liberians on instituting preventive measures against the virus can never be overemphasized.
He added that his institution was thrilled to tap into its limited financial resources to produce the COVID preventive materials.
“CECPAP’s quick impact project on the sensitization of the new variant of the coronavirus involves a massive awareness - educating Liberians on the veracity of the virus and the threats it poses to their lives.
“My team is going around encouraging Liberians to take preventive measures by adapting the new health protocols issued by the Liberian government.
"Along with the massive sensitization campaign is the distribution of facemasks, washing hands buckets, hand sanitizers, and COVID awareness flyers to Liberians. So, you see, my team is not just talking to Liberians about the Coronavirus, it is also equipping them with materials that can be used for their protection,” Mr. Crawford concluded.
