BUCHANAN, October 10 (LINA) -The Special Representative of the Secretary General of the United Nations, Karin Landgren, has pledged the UN’s support to the construction of an Ebola Treatment Unit in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County.

Addressing a meeting with the Grand Bassa Ebola Task Force at UNMIL compound on Thursday, Landgren said there is a need for such a treatment center, assuring that “UNMIL will do everything in that direction.”

The UN Special Representative’s visit to Buchanan was to familiarize herself with the work of the Ebola Task Force during which she praised the group for its effort in containing the Ebola virus.

The visit also took the UN official to the offices of the Bassa Women Development Association (BAWODA) and the Liberian Government Hospital.

“We are very impressed, we’ve seen the smooth effectiveness of Superintendent (Etweeda) Cooper, the health team and Bassa Ebola Taskforce’s plans of action,” she said.

Landgren added: “I should also say that we are interested in Ebola challenges and responses more broadly. We’ve seen security problems as well as political issues, but your collective efforts will help eradicate Ebola from Liberia, and we can help,” she stressed.

In her welcome statement, Superintendent Cooper outlined the Taskforce’s constraints and challenges, and lauded the UN official for coming to Grand Bassa to acquaint herself with problems in the county.

She praised UNMIL and other contributing partners for their continuous support to the County Ebola Taskforce in the fight against the pandemic.
