Cape Mount Women To Train In Ebola Prevention

By D. Ignatius Roberts, LINA Cape Mount County Correspondent

ROBERTSPORT, June 6 (LINA) -The Liberia National Red Cross Society (LNRCS) branch in Robertsport, Grand Cape Mount County, will train 75 women on ways to prevent the spread of the Ebola virus.

The two-day training takes place in Tewor District early next week.

This was disclosed by the branch acting Field Officer of LNRCS, Konah E. Paul, in an interview with the Liberia News Agency in Robertsport Friday.

She said the participants will come from the three districts that border the Republic of Sierra Leone, where the latest Ebola outbreak has been reported.

The districts are Tewor, Porkpa and Gola Konneh.

She said prevention of the deadly Ebola virus should not be considered the responsibility of Government alone, but should claim the attention of every Liberian.       

Meanwhile, the Grand Cape Mount LNRCS chapter on Friday carried out a one-day clean-up campaign in Robertsport with more than 75 students from five schools participating.

The schools are Robertsport High School, Episcopal High School, Demonstration Elementary School, the Urias B. Freeman United Methodist School and the Muslim School, according to Madam Paul.

In a related development, Madam Paul has disclosed plans by the LNRCS to reactivate Red Cross chapters in schools in the county.

She said a membership drive to recruit about 3,000 young volunteers in the county was launched on Friday, June 6, in Robertsport.

The Field Officer said besides, the chapter has plans to engage in agriculture, including the cultivation of cassava on 15 acres of land acquired in Porkpa, Garwula, Gola Konneh and Tewor Districts.
