Bong University Students Volunteer To Join Ebola Fight
By Ballah Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent

PHEBE, September 29 (LINA) -The Bong University Students Union (BUSU) has volunteered the services of its membership in the fight against Ebola, and hoped the county administration and Ebola Task Force would take advantage of their offer.

“Since the outbreak (of Ebola), you have not seen us as sons and daughters of this soil, but as of today (September 27), you can begin making use of our volunteerism in whatever meaningful way you want us to serve,” said BUSU President Germue Kwenah.

He noted that the fight against the dreaded Ebola disease is the responsibility of all Liberians, and hence the student union thought to contribute its human resources to obtain victory over the virus.

Kwenah made the statement when BUSU donated an assortment of anti-Ebola materials to the county’s Ebola Task Force at the weekend that included 20 kilograms of chlorine, two hand-washing buckets and 1,000 pieces of flyers with anti-Ebola messages.

Receiving the items, Bong County Development Superintendent Anthony Sheriff thanked the students for the donation describing it as “a worthy gesture.”

He promised to turn over the donation and convey the students' pledge to volunteer their services to Superintendent Selena Polson Mappy, noting that he believes she would be willing to use their talents.

Sheriff observed that the students would be better placed in the areas of awareness and mobilization as there continues to be situations that must be addressed through awareness, sensitization and mobilization.

BUSU groups Bong County students from all universities across the country and constitutes the umbrella organization of the county’s higher education student community.
