Grand Kru Citizens Strategies To Fight Ebola

By Jefferson D. Tweh

Residents of Grand Kru County residing in Monrovia and its environs have held a one-day meeting aimed at finding ways to support the fight against Ebola in the county.

A Senatorial aspirant of Grand Kru County, Albert Tugbeh Chie who led the special meeting last weekend at his office in Monrovia, said collectively they should find positive solutions to fighting the Ebola virus that is claiming the lives of many people in the country.

He also proffered the conduct of massive awareness in the 12 communities in Grand Kru County to educate the people on preventive measures especially in Ebola-reported communities in Parluken, Forpoh District and said he also heard that many people have lost their lives in that part of the county.

The Sass town Chief, Joseph Weah, lauded Prof. Chie for recognizing and inviting the citizens of Grand Kru to discuss the current situation that is unfolding in the county.

Mr. Weah suggested that some residents from the 12 communities of Grand Kru County and residing in Monrovia and its environs should be trained and must be given materials to carry on the massive awareness which should also include the training of individuals who can speak the languages in the county.

Meanwhile, in an effort to fight the Ebola virus, Prof. Chie gave L$100,000 to the residents to kick off the Ebola awareness and at the same time said the Friends of Albert Tugbeh Chie (FOATC) had carried several buckets, cartons of clorax and chlorines as well as other materials to the county for Ebola awareness.
