By David Seedee, Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, Jan 24 (LINA) - The Liberia National Red Cross Society (LNRCS) Chapter in Bomi County has harvested rice planted on 20 acres of land in the county, an official of the LNRCS has disclosed.

LNRCS Field Officer, Zinnah Quaye, also disclosed that a similar acreage of cassava planted by the Society is nearing the stage of harvesting.

Quaye told the Liberia News Agency Thursday in Tubmanburg that the Red Cross provided seed rice to more than 75 farmers in the districts of Bomi County in 2013, to empower them to grow more seed rice for food security.

The Red Cross official said the Bomi County Chapter was engaged in helping the needy in the county in the areas of health, youth development, food security, family tracing and disaster management.

He said the Society was supporting the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare through the Bomi County Health Team (CHT) in 17 communities under its maternity, unborn child and health

He said the Red Cross also chlorinated 37 wells in Klay and Dewein Districts after a diarrhea outbreak in several communities in the districts and provided Water Guard to keep their drinking water safe from water borne diseases.
