The Servant of Africa Fighting Ebola (SAFE) has received two boxes of mega phones and accessories from the Rotary Club to help spread the message of the Ebola virus across Liberia.
At the Bella Casa Hotel in Sinkor where the presentation took place yesterday, the Rotary club members said they were happy to provide the mega phones for SAFE to enable the organization continue the good work they are doing.
Receiving the mega phones, the National Chairperson of the Civil Society Council of Liberia, Madam Frances Greaves thanked members of the Rotary and said the mega phones will be used for the intended purpose.
She stressed that they will do all they can to make sure that the preventive message of Ebola be sent across Liberia. She mentioned that there are improvements but that does not mean Liberians should be content because Ebola is still in Liberia.
Madam Greaves said that Liberia has a lot of international partners that are helping to contain the deadly disease; that is why cases of the Ebola virus are reducing in the country. She stressed that she is thankful that Nigerian medical workers could join in the fight against the Ebola virus.
The founder of SAFE, Dr. Togba Nah Tipoteh, said the mega phones will be given to volunteers of SAFE to promote preventive messages of Ebola and stressed that with the special senatorial elections taking place, the preventive message of Ebola needs to be sent out.
He added that the mega phones will help Liberians get in touch with one another and carry the message across. He farther said that their volunteers have no difficulties on the field because all they have to do is let the people hear the message because Ebola is still in Liberia.
Dr. Tipoteh mentioned that most of their volunteers are individuals who exchange money and sell scratched cards and that they are focused on making sure that Liberians are aware that the Ebola virus is still in Liberia and that Liberians should not forget to adhere to the necessary preventive measures.
