SANNIQUELLIE, November 8 (LINA) - About 3,000 hygiene promotion kits worth US$12,000 are being distributed in Nimba County to enhance the fight against the Ebola disease.

The Ministry of Public Works launched the exercise Thursday in collaboration with the Nimba County Health Team and EQUIP, an international non-governmental organization in Monrovia, according to the Assistant Public Works Minister for Community Services, George Chiango.

Speaking to the Liberia News Agency in Sanniquellie Friday, Chiango said the supplies are being distributed to households for domestic use.

He disclosed that each kit contains a bucket with faucet, a gallon of Clorox, a 20-liter empty plastic can, water guide and recyclable gloves.

The assistant public works minister pointed out that though the distribution targets all towns in Nimba, there is a long-term plan to supply schools when academic activities resume.
