CHAL Donates Anti-Ebola Materials To Health Institutions
By Calvin Brooks

MONROVIA, October 12 (LINA) - The Executive Director of the Christian Health Association of Liberia (CHAL) has disclosed that CHAL has donated anti-Ebola materials to health institutions across Liberia.
Patricia Kamara said the anti-Ebola materials including buckets, hand gloves, temperature testers and chlorine, are to strengthen health institutions to combat Ebola in the country.


Kamara told journalists Friday at the institution’s headquarters in Sinkor that CHAL expects more anti-Ebola supplies from partners in
Germany for distribution to health institutions across the country.

At the same time, Madam Kamara has disclosed that CHAL has trained health workers of more than 40 faith-based health institutions in 12
counties in Liberia about the preventive measures to curb the spread of the deadly disease.


She said the training was conducted by a German Doctor who cautioned health workers to be mindful of the risk associated with their duties
in health institutions and to be able cater to patients, despite the outbreak of Ebola.


“ The German Government is going to support CHAL to set up trade -hatch in almost all health facilities in Liberia to prevent health
workers from being infected by patients,” Kamara said, noting that this will be installed at the main entrances of the facilities.
According to her, the trade-hatch which will be set up at health facilities will prevent the further spread of the virus among health
workers because nobody will enter the facilities without washing their hands and undergoing temperature test.


She pointed out that Ebola is dangerous and has affected the entire growth and development of Liberia, and hence it was crucial for every
Liberian to adhere to the preventive measures put in place by the ministry of health to break the chain of transmission of the disease.
Kamara emphasized that it was time for partners of the government and local organizations to come in to help Liberia eradicatre Ebola from
the country as soon as possible for the nation to move forward.
