Red Cross Begins Ebola Campaign in Bassa


The Grand Bassa County Chapter of the Liberia National Red Cross Society (LNRCS) has begun an Ebola campaign in the county to sensitize citizens about the danger and prevention of the spread of the deadly disease.

The field officer of the chapter, Mr. William Jah, during an exclusive interview with the Daily Observer recently, said that his chapter had addressed issues of the victims of the disease and affected communities to make sure that those affected are reunited with their respective families.                                                                                              

He said that the chapter had provided training for over 100 community volunteers in collaboration with Concern Worldwide-Liberia branch in the county, especially in District No. 3 on EBOLA awareness and how to prevent the disease.

“We extended our training and Ebola awareness in Goingbo and Tarr Wlen Townships in Glakon Statutory District No. 2, where we gave Ebola preventive materials such as buckets, chlora, Dettol and soap for regular hand washing to vulnerable communities,” said Mr. Jah

The chapter also provided fire victims with zinc, clothes, cooking utensils and other items for resettlement.

He then cautioned citizens of the county not to forget that the county is not completely Ebola-free despite the decrease in the spread of the disease, adding that they should continue to adhere to the preventive instructions to completely eradicate the virus.

Mr. Jah also revealed that LNRCS had provided assistance to flood victims during the rainy season in Corn Farm, Fairground, Otis Spot and Bassa Communities,  respectively.
