Ex-Rep Suggests ‘Reintegration Package’ For Ebola Survivors

By Winnie S. Dixon/LINA

MONROVIA, November 24 (LINA) - Former Montserrado County Representative Victoria Lynch has called on government to provide reintegration packages for Ebola survivors and others discharged from Ebola Treatment Units.

In an interview with the Liberia News Agency in Monrovia Monday, Lynch said bedding, clothes, food and psycho-social support would serve as a start-off in the reintegration of Ebola survivors into society.

According to Lynch, these items are needed because many belongings used by survivors before or during their illness are destroyed to prevent the spread of the virus.

Lynch added that among survivors are children who stand the risk of becoming vulnerable to malnutrition and other conditions that result from the lack of care, if nothing is done to aid them.

Since the outbreak of the Ebola Virus in Liberia, many of its victims, mostly from Sinoe, Cape Mount, Maryland and River Cess counties, among others, have been making appeals to government and partners to focus on reintegration of Ebola survivors.
