MONROVIA, September 12 (LINA) - Montserrado County Representative Thomas P. Fallah has urged Liberians to take the battle against the Ebola virus seriously to eradicate the deadly disease from the country.
Representative Fallah said Ebola has permeated the fabric of the Liberian society, noting that this should claim the attention of every Liberian no matter their status in the society.
The Montserrado County lawmaker made the statement Friday during the dedication of the Community Hope Education and Ebola Resource Center established by the Wesleyan Church of Liberia (WCL) through its Health Jingo Program in the Monrovia suburb of Paynesville..
He stressed that the fight against Ebola should be a collective effort of the government and the entire citizenry because Ebola does not distinguish its victims, and therefore needs to be tackled from all fronts.
Representative Fallah’s statement was contained in a speech read on his behalf at the dedicatory ceremony by Peterson M. Weah, his executive secretary.
In remarks, WCL Pastor P. Fahn Kollie said the objective of the Ebola resource center is to increase access to Ebola education and basic resources for vulnerable people in Paynesville and its surroundings.
Rev. Kollie explained that the center will also help to reduce the rate of ignorance and denial among people about Ebola and decrease the number of households without hand-washing facilities and lack of access to education and chlorine solution.
He indicated that the center will provide training to community groups involved in the Ebola awareness campaign across the country.
