Although schools have remained closed since the outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus disease (EVD) in the country, hopes are now emerging for the reopening exercises of all academic institutions with reports of decline in the spread of the virus.
With that promising hope, the leadership of the Association of Evangelicals of Liberia (AEL) yesterday donated several items to a locally-based—Progressive Youth for Empowerment and Development (PYEP), to undertake series of clean-up campaign exercises at various school campuses in Montserrado Electoral District #6.
Items presented for use by the PYEP through its president, Victor M. Jackson include eight brand new wheelbarrows, shovels, cutlasses, wipers, rakes, etc.
“These items are being donated with the trust that you will begin to clean-up school campuses and around Monrovia to prepare ahead of normal academic resumption by early next year,” AEL Secretary-General, Rev. Isaac S. Wheigar told the group as he presented the materials to them.
On behalf of PYEP, the president, Victor M. Jackson, expressed gratitude to AEL, and promised to take advantage of the materials received to commence the early cleaning of campuses that are within their immediate reach in District #6, before expanding the process to other parts of Montserrado County.
