Findley Eyes Monument, Compensation For Late Health Workers

By: Hilary Vasco Wiagbe & Winnie Dixon

MONROVIA, August 14(LINA) -The President Pro-Tempore of the Liberian Senate, Gbehzohngar M. Findley, says he will proffer a Bill to compensate the families of health workers who lost their lives to Ebola while in service to the country.

Senator Findley said it was prudent that the Government of Liberia identifies with the families of the Ebola victims in the spirit of nationalism.

According to the Liberia News Agency (LINA), the Grand Bassa County Senator made the remarks Thursday when he addressed his regular monthly press briefing at the Capitol Building.

Findley also stressed that besides compensating the family members of the Ebola victims, he will propose the erection of a monument for the deceased, especially the nurses and doctors who died while rendering service to the State and humanity.

He noted that the nurses and doctors are the ones who are in the frontline in the fight against the disease in Liberia, describing them as heroes and heroines.

At the same time, Senator Findley has called on Liberians to combine their efforts in the fight against the Ebola disease.

Findley said he was convinced that when Liberians work together, they will succeed in overcoming the virus.

Meanwhile, Findley has expressed the Senate’s deepest condolence to the families of health workers who died while in the fight against the deadly Ebola disease.

He said, though death is a difficult thing to accept, especially at a time when they became victims while saving lives, it is important to see their dead families as heroes and heroines whom, in the protection of the larger society, gave up the ghost, and will always be remembered for their role played.

The Pro-Tempore added that the situation of the health workers is no different from the duty of the Army, whom in many cases face enemies they have not encountered or know about, but must fight to defend the call of their duties and save the state.

He stressed that their memories will always live even after the disease is eradicated from the country, because they were always in the forefront even at the alarming death rate among their colleagues.

He called on all Liberians who have lost their loved ones and families in this deadly cause to take courage, and know that their leaders are with them in this national disaster
