TUBMANBURG, September 9 (LINA) - The United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) has donated US$19,990 to the Bomi County Health Team (BCHT) in support of the county’s fight against the Ebola disease.

Presenting the amount on behalf of UNMIL Bomi County Sector in Tubmanburg on Monday, UNMIL Press Information Officer (PIO) Madam Frances Alsei said the fight against Ebola should not be left with the government and the Liberian people alone, noting that the international community should also be involved.

She said the US$19,990 represents 80 percent of the amount requested by the BCHT, while the remaining 20 percent will be given when the BCHT submits a report of expenditure of the 80 percent.

Madam Alsei said the money will be used to purchase laptops, laboratory equipment and other things necessary for the eradication of the Ebola disease from the county.

Receiving the amount on behalf of the BCHT, the Acting County Health Officer, Dr. Gabriel Logan, said US$8,996 of the amount will be used for logistics, while US$11,023 will go towards sensitization and awareness.

Dr. Logan expressed the Bomi County Health Teams gatitude  to UNMIL for the contribution at this crucial time in the country’s history.  

He assured UNMIL that the money will be used for the intended purpose.
