Egypt Joins Ebola Fight With US$57k Donation

By Hilary Vasco Wiagbe

MONROVIA, September 26 (LINA) - The Arab Republic of Egypt has joined donors in helping to buttress the Liberian Government’s effort in the fight against the Ebola virus.

Egyptian Ambassador to Liberia, Sameh Lotfi, put the value of the assistance which contains medicines and personal protective equipment, among other essentials for the Ebola fight, at US$57, 000.

Ambassador Lotfi, who delivered the first portion of the assistance to the Government of Liberia on Friday, said a second consignment will arrive in the country shortly, the Liberia News Agency (LINA) reports.

He said the assistance symbolizes Egypt’s solidarity with Liberia as the country goes through these difficult times, describing Egypt as a sister of Liberia.

“We share the same feelings of the dear Liberian people and wish that Liberia will cross this difficult stage with more strength and tolerance,” Loitfi added.

Responding, the acting Foreign Minister Sylvester Grisgby described the gesture of the Egyptian people as “vital because it will go a long way in enhancing the fight against the Ebola disease in Liberia.”

Grisgby recounted the relationship that has subsisted between Liberia and Egypt and hoped that it will continue to be nurtured for the benefit of both countries.

He also conveyed thanks and appreciation to the Government and people of Egypt on behalf of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, the people and Government of Liberia through Ambassador Lotfi for the assistance.
