MCC Donates Protective Materials To CMT, CBE                      

By: Calvin Brooks

MONROVIA, August 13 (LINA) -The Monrovia City Corporation  (MCC)  has donated  protective materials to the Community Management Team (CMT) and Community-Based Enterprise (CBE)  to prevent workers from contracting the Ebola virus while collecting wastes in Monrovia.

According the Coordinator of the Improved Primary Waste Collection In Poor Communities (IMPAC) Project, Frank A. Krah, the wastes generated from a variety of sources could contain hazardous materials that could contaminate garbage.

Krah, an official of the MCC, made the disclosure Wednesday at a one-day Ebola prevention awareness seminar for members of the CMT and CBE under the IMPAC project held at the Monrovia Hall.

He indicated that the materials include gloves, chloride, buckets, soap and megaphones to also create awareness about the danger of the Ebola virus while serving in the communities.

Coordinator Krah stressed that it is crucial for waste collectors to be protected against the deadly disease, noting that the kind of work they do puts them in a dangerous position at all the times.
