HARPER, Nov 1 (LINA)-The Maryland County detachment of the Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization (BIN) has joined the fight against Ebola by disseminating Ebola prevention messages to communities along Liberia’s borders with the Ivory Coast.
Disclosing this during an Ebola update meeting Wednesday with United Nations Police (UNPOL) delegation which visited Maryland County, the BIN Maryland County Border Patrol Commander, Colonel Menasa Felee, said all BIN Officers assigned at entry points with Ivory Coast have become actively involved in disseminating Ebola awareness messages aimed at preventing the spread of the virus in the county, especially in the border areas.
COL. Felee however told the UNPOL delegation that mobility was the Burueau’s major challenge in the dissemination of messages.
He commended Maryland County contingent of UNPOL for the cooperation they have accorded the BIN over the years, and hoped they would help address some of the challenges facing the BIN in Maryland County.
In response, Mr. Greg Hind, UNPOL Commander for Liberia who headed the delegation, assured the joint security in the county that UNMIL would do everything to improve their working conditions.
