By Korboi K. Gbelewala, LINA Lofa County Correspondent

VOINJAMA, October 9 (LINA) -A three-day workshop to train youths in creating awareness on preventive measures against new outbreak and spread of the Ebola virus has ended in Voinjama City, Lofa County.

The workshop, which ran from October 6- 8, was aimed at training citizens, especially youth, to conduct door-to-door Ebola awareness and sensitization campaign to combat the spread of the deadly disease in the county.

Speaking at the end of the workshop, the Chairman of Lofa Youth Development Network (LYDN), James Dennis, said though no new Ebola cases and deaths have been reported in the county of late, the Network decided to train more youths for continuous awareness building.

Dennis cautioned participants to take advantage of the training to educate their people in the various communities on the danger the virus poses to their lives.

In remarks, the participants thanked LYDN for the workshop, and pledged to serve their people in any capacity during this Ebola crisis.

LYDN was established in 2011 as a youth organization to provide skills training for youths in Lofa, as well as organize and promote youth programs, among others.

It can be recalled that on October 2, LYDN donated several assorted items valued at USD$2,000 to 15 Ebola-affected communities in Lofa County and on October 6, launched a one-month Ebola awareness and sensitization campaign to buttress the efforts of the government and partners in the fight against Ebola in Lofa County.
