By David Seedee, LINA Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, September 28 (LINA) - The Liberia National Red Cross Society (LNRCS) has trained 20 volunteers to provide Psycho-Social Service (PSS) to victims of the Ebola disease.

According to the LNRCS Project Coordinator of the Women Training and Integration Project, Madam Joyous Momoh, those trained will engage in Counseling, Psycho-education and Case Management for Ebola victims.

She told the Liberia News Agency in Tubmanburg at the weekend that the 20 volunteers, who have been trained to deal with people with psycho-social cases due to the Ebola crisis, will also provide services in the area of Contact Tracing.

Madam Momoh said the three-day training was funded by the International Federation of Red Cross (IFRC) with the LNRCS as implementing partner.
