Supt. Buway Suggests Psychosocial Counseling For Ebola Survivors
By Richard Baysah, LINA Correspondent In Margibi


KAKATA, October 13 (LINA) - Margibi County Superintendent John Buway has underscored the need for a comprehensive people-centered psycho-social counseling program for survivors of the Ebola virus due to the stigmatization of victims and survivors of the disease.

Superintendent Buway said such a program will help in remodeling the minds of survivors who go through excruciating pains and psychological trauma after contracting the Ebola disease.

He made the statement over the week-end during the county’s regular weekly Ebola Task Force meeting at the administration building in Kakata, according to the Liberia News Agency.

According to him, the Ebola outbreak has led to many children becoming orphans in the county, noting this was “very worrisome” for the future of the country.

Superintendent Buway emphasized that unless government puts into place a proper psycho-social counseling program for the survivors, they risk facing trauma that will be difficult to deal with in the future.

He stressed the need to put in place measures to deal with post–Ebola problems that will be faced by the Liberian Government and people.

Superintendent Buway indicated that Margibi County is one of the counties hardest hit by the Ebola virus since its outbreak in early March this year.
