MONROVIA, August 8 (LINA) - Defense Minister Brownie J. Samukai has called on private companies and business entities operating in the country to contribute towards the effort to prevent the spread of the Ebola virus.

The Defense Minister said the country is currently in need of assistance from every sector of society to enable it contain the Ebola outbreak.

He made the appeal Thursday at the Ministry of Information regular weekly press briefing in the ministry’s conference hall in Monrovia.

Minister Samukai said his appeal was line with his duty as a government official and also a citizen who thinks that Liberia’s current health crisis must be the collective responsibility of every citizen and business entity in the country.

“If you help us with water, with rice for the police and army or gas to keep our generators running at hospitals and radio stations, we will appreciate your effort,” he said.

According to him, Liberia can also be like its neighboring Guinea where corporate businesses are donating cash as well as items to the Guinean government in its fight against Ebola.

“If you have been saying that Liberia is a friend to you, it is the time to make your presence felt. If you are our partner we now need you… this is the time for you to prove that you love us,” he added.

Meanwhile, Minister Samukai has lauded friendly governments, international partners and NGOs that have so far assisted Liberia as the country endeavors to contain the spread of the Ebola virus.
