A Non-Governmental Organization-THINK-INC. last Friday made several donations to the ELWA Police Station, the ELWA Gas Station, ELWA Markets and other several communities with pig feet barrels, buckets, tile-soap and Clorox worth over hundreds of United States Dollars.
Making the donation at the ELWA Police Station, THINK Gender Focus Person, Joan K. Dalton, expressed with deep solace the level of destruction being carried out by the deadly Ebola virus. she said since the outbreak of the Ebola epidemic in the Country, nearly all sectors of the Liberian society have been hit, with either the loss of lives, while several other persons are admitted at various centers and are currently being cared for by health workers and some communities quarantined to help curtail the spread of the virus.
Madam Dalton lauded the efforts of the Liberia National Police for the great job it is doing currently to help curtail the high risk of community residents contacting the virus, saying, the Police have been placed on the frontline to work along health workers find sick persons with the virus to be taken to the center.
She further disclosed that the Police should carry out the arrest of criminals and armed robbers who are silent carriers of the virus and believed it was necessary to aid them in the fight of the Ebola virus at least by extending those preventive materials which she said will help the Police with the washing of hands that she said is very cardinal to prevention of the disease.
Responding, the Commander of the ELWA Police Station Depot 8 Chief Superintendent, McClain Taipeh, lauded the efforts of Touching Humanity In Needs of Kindness (THINK) for the donation and promised to convey those messages of felicitations to his Boss, Col. Chris Massaquoi who he said has been in the vanguard of sensitizing people on the importance of the Ebola epidemic.
The ELWA Police Boss also lauded Madam Rosana Schaack who through her efforts has made the donation to them. He also thanked her for the many donations made in other parts of the country with a little resource.
Other areas benefiting from the donations were a mini business center at the ELWA Gas Station and the ELWA Market which have been one of the closest places to the ELWA Ebola Center. Both Lester Buchanan and the ELWA Market Superintendent, Mary Musa lauded THINK-INC. for the gestures. Lester, who sells cosmetics at the ELWA Market said several of those donations passed by them at the gas station without being noticed.
THINK-INC has in collaboration with the Ministry of Health currently been carrying on sensitization in Rivercess County where severe communities have benefited.
