Local NGO Urges Initiatives Against Ebola

By Calvin Brooks

MONROVIA, September 15 (LINA) - The Chairman of the Gbarpolu Citizens Ebola Response Initiative (GERI) has challenged Liberians to get fully involved in the fight against the Ebola disease in Liberia.

Mr. Frederick T. Noah stressed that the battle against Ebola should not be left with the government and its international partners alone, noting that Liberians should actively get involved with spreading preventive messages to complement their efforts.

Noah made the call Sunday at the Gbarpolu Citizens Ebola Response Initiative (GERI) Awareness Consultative Meeting with citizens of Gbarpolu residing in Monrovia and its environs held at the Botswain High School in the Monrovia suburb of Bushrod Island.

He indicated that the GERI is soliciting funds from Gbarpolu’s citizens at home and abroad to establish the Ebola Treatment Unit and quarantine center for suspected Ebola patients found in the county, despite the fact that no confirmed Ebola cases have been reported in the county.

He explained that at the moment the county needs ambulances to transport suspected Ebola patients and a radio station to disseminate Ebola messages across to ensure that the people are informed about the disease.

Noah disclosed that GERI has donated more than 100 buckets with 20 boxes of chlorine and protective materials to combat the disease, adding that these initiatives are necessary to save the lives of the people.
