Bong Health Team, Task Force Donate L$50k Items

By Ballah Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, September 3 (LINA) -The Bong County Health Team and County Ebola Task Force have donated several items valued at over L$50,000 to the Salala Checkpoint and residents of Balaketela Community in the county.

The items donated Tuesday are a 2.5 kilowatt generator, L$8,500 worth of gas, five cartoons of washing soap, four cartons of bath soap and a carton of detergent.

According to the Liberia News Agency, the donation is in response to an appeal Balaketela residents and joint security officers assigned at the Salala Immigration Checkpoint made on August 25 when the team set up a testing center at the checkpoint.

Making the presentation in Balaketela in Bong County, Superintendent Selena Polson Mappy said she shares their sorrow as they have lost more than 20 of their community members to the deadly Ebola virus.

The citizens, during a recent visit of the County Ebola Task Force and Health Team, agreed to adhere to the quarantine regulations, but complained about the lack of a number of basic commodities to sustain them during the quarantine.

They also complained about being stigmatized as business people were rejecting money from them for fear of contracting the Ebola virus in exchange for goods.

In response, Clan Chief Ben Tyler thanked Superintendent Mappy and the county task force for the gesture, and promised to ensure equitable distribution of the items.

Meanwhile, officers at the Salala Checkpoint, headed by Lt. Col. Richard A. Fahnbulleh, have thanked the donors for the items and promised to ensure proper usage of the donation.
