USA Foe River Citizens Give Back To Panta, Zota
By Ballah Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, October 21 (LINA) - The Foe River Basin Community Development Organization based in the United States has donated anti-Ebola materials to citizens of Panta and Zota Districts in Bong County.

Items donated to Panta District are 50 buckets of detergent, 10 cartons of powder soap and six cartons of bottled detergent, one barrel of powder chlorine, one sack of chlorine tablet, two cartons of gloves, two cartons of hand sanitizes and hundreds of Ebola awareness posters.

To Zota District, the citizens donated 17 buckets of detergents, six cartons of powder soap, one carton of hand sanitizers, one bag of chlorine powder, one carton  of gloves and several Ebola awareness posters.

Turning the items over to citizens of Foequelleh and Belefenai Monday, Bong County Superintendent Selena Polson Mappy lauded the US-based Foe River citizens for the donation and called on the locals to make good use of the items.

In separate remarks, Commissioners Wellington K. Bellepu of Panta and Arthur Kpolleh of Zota districts, described the donation as “a dream come true and one that comes as no surprise.”

“Our children have always looked in our direction especially in times of need,” they noted.

Early this year, following an outcry by citizens of the basin, the Foe River Basin Organization donated a vehicle for use as an Ambulance in the area.

Panta and Zota remain the only districts in Bong County that have not registered any case of Ebola since the outbreak of the disease in the county.

The basin is named after a river that runs through parts of the two districts.
