Pres. Sirleaf Calls For Anti-Ebola Ambassadors

By: Prince Nagbe

MONROVIA, September 1 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has called on community leaders in Montserrado County to serve as anti-Ebola ambassadors as a way of eradicating the virus.

President Sirleaf said as community leaders, they should play an important role in this national fight by sensitizing residents of their communities about the danger of the virus and how they can prevent it from spreading.

The Liberian leader made the statement at the end of a week-long Ebola awareness training workshop organized by the Alpha Fa Alpha Fraternity at the Newport Junior High School in Monrovia over the weekend.

She admonished them to pass on the knowledge acquired to their colleagues in their various communities so as to make the fight against Ebola a very easy one.

She also urged community leaders at the workshop to work with authorities of the Monrovia City Cooperation (MCC) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to clean their environment while combating the Ebola virus.

President Sirleaf observed that people are dying not only from the Ebola virus but also from sicknesses they get as a result of keeping their environment dirty, adding, “Some of our people got sick and died as a result of air pollution caused by a filthy environment.”

The Liberia chapter of the Alpha Fa Alpha Fraternity, an international humanitarian organization based in United States, over the weekend completed a one week intensive training workshop on Ebola awareness and prevention for community leaders in Montserrado County.

The workshop brought together over 100 community leaders and residents who trained on how to create awareness, prevent the spread of the disease and respond to suspected cases.
