Veterans Launch Ebola Awareness In Rural Liberia

By Richard Stephens

MONROVIA, September 24 (LINA) -The National Bureau of Veteran Affairs (NBVA) has begun sensitizing rural dwellers in six of Liberia’s 15 counties on the Ebola virus and the danger it poses to human existence.

NBVA Deputy Director General for Administration, Railey G. Karkor, told the Liberia News Agency Tuesday that the Bureau’s county coordinators in Bong, Nimba, Grand Gedeh, Grand Bassa, Sinoe and Lofa counties recently trained by the Bureau are moving from village to village sensitizing community dwellers.

He said recently, the National Bureau of Veteran Affairs donated some cartons of assorted disinfectants and faucet-fitted buckets to few communities in Nimba County.

Mr. Karkor stressed the need for Liberians to believe the existence of the virus in the country and abide by preventive measures, saying, “The killer disease is on a mass execution of Liberians.”

He extended condolences to the families who have lost members to the Ebola virus, adding that the deaths of their relatives should serve as a challenge that would compel them to work with government in making sure that Liberia becomes an Ebola-free society.

Mr. Karkor then lauded the government for the level of successes scored so far in the fight against the Ebola virus and urged the international community to continue their support to Liberia.
