By Chris Nyenapee, LINA Grand Gedeh County Correspondent

ZWEDRU CITY, September 28 (LINA) -The Grand Gedeh County Ebola Task Force has received donations from companies and NGOs operating in the county as contributions to the fight against the Ebola virus.

Donors include the Putu Iron Ore Mining (PIOM), which gave the first100 gallons of fuel promised every month over the next four months, and UNHCR, which provided several cartons of assorted drugs and three digital thermometers.

CARITAS, The German Agro Action (GAA) and OXFAM promised to intervene in carrying out assessment to assist needed towns and villages with faucet buckets detergents, detergents, chlorine and powder soap to the less fortunate in Bhai, Gbao, Konobo, ,Glio /Twarbo and Gboe /Ploe administrative districts.

The spokesman of the Task Force Secretariat, Mr. Alphonso  Gbaye, who made the disclosure to the Liberia News Agency (LINA) at the weekend, said the donations are in response to appeals by the County Task Force Ways and Means Committee.

Mr. Gbaye said the three digital thermometers will be installed at the National Palace of Corrections, Garley Town and Gbarbo Town checkpoints for temperature testing of road users to know their status before entering the City of Zwedru.

He said the drugs have in the meantime been turned over to the Martha Tubman Memorial Hospital.

In a related development, the UNHCR has announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding with the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare for US$100,000 to assist communities hosting refugees, including Little Wlebo, PTP, Bahn and River Gee Refugee camps.

The Liberia Refugee Repatriation and Resettlement Commission has begun distribution of flyers on Ebola printed in French for the Ivoirian refugee population, the task force secretariat spokesman also disclosed.
