The interim management team of the Harbel College has pleaded with Liberians at home and abroad to augment their current level of individual and collective resolve to completely eradicate the deadly Ebola virus disease (EVD) from Liberia.
The communication department of the college, located on the campus of Harbel Multilateral High School near Firestone-Liberia, in a recent interview with this newspaper, stressed that a united force to eradicate the virus from the country is a responsibility that all Liberians must endeavor to shoulder until at such time when the World Health Organization (WHO) declares the country an Ebola-free, like Senegal and Nigeria.
The college, currently being operated by an interim management team headed by the veteran educator, Madam Dwede Hoto, is cautiously commending the Liberian citizenry, the Margibi County Legislative Caucus, the county administration that mainly embodies the Margibi health team and residents for the level of coordination that has achieved the degree of progress thus far in the fight against the outbreak in the county and the country in general.
The interim management team of the Harbel College (HARCO), which was established in 2012 by an Act of the Liberian Legislature, has also thanked the managements and staffs of Firestone, Roberts International Airport, the Liberia Institute for Biomedical Research (LIBR), the Salala Rubber Corporation and other companies and business entities operating in the county for their dedication to the fight thus far.
Expressing the hope that normal educational activities will soon resume in the country, the management team expressed gratitude to all students of HARCO for their level of cooperation and collaboration with the anti-Ebola teams of the various communities throughout Margibi and beyond in their collective quest to ensure that the virus is eradicated.
Meanwhile, a spokesman for the interim management team told the Daily Observer that until President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, who is visitor to the college, can appoint the President and other executives, the current team is said to be running a preparatory program involving English, Mathematics and Peace Studies.
However, the program of the college, which has an enrollment of more than 250 students, has been interrupted as the result of the outbreak.
