The St. Kizito Catholic Church Young Adults Association (CYAA), over the weekend donated several items worth several hundred Liberian dollars. According to some members of the church, they said there was need to identify with victims of the Ebola virus looking at the deteriorating health condition of the sick.
Presenting the items, the president of the association, Joseph F. A. Tellewoyan raised serious concern on the alarming deaths of Liberians at the hands of the deadly Ebola virus. According to Mr. Tellewoyan, the fight in tackling the virus should not be left to Government alone.
He lauded the Government of Liberia and other international partners who are geared towards combating the virus. Mr. Tellewoyan also lauded the management of the ELWA-2 Ebola that is being controlled by Doctors of the ELWA Hospital and is placed under the Liberian Government with direct control from the Ministry of Health for the level of good work being carried out at the center.
A staunch member of the church, Jennie Fallah Wounuah expressed deepest sorrow for the patients, saying, Liberians, irrespective of culture, political and religious background, should rally around the Government in fighting the virus so as to see that the virus is eradicated from the Liberian society in the soonest possible time.
Receiving the items, Doctor Jonathan Hart of ELWA-2Ebola Center in ELWA, lauded St. Kizito Church Youths and Young Adults Department for the donation, and promised to convey the kind gesture of the Church to his boss, Doctor Jerry Brown who he said has been so instrumental in the fight against the eradication of the virus.
He used the St. Kizito Church as a point of contact in thanking all those who have been willingly giving to the center in kind with lots of food and other non-food items.
