VOINJAMA, November 25 (LINA) - The Paramount Chief of Zorzor District in Lofa County has assured citizens of the full involvement of local chiefs in the fight against Ebola in the county.

According to the Liberia News Agency, Chief Zayzay gave the assurance Monday at programs marking the wider county awareness, “Pushing Ebola Back”, a community-based empowerment approach organized by the Lofa County NGOs Network (LOFANET) in collaboration with the NARDA, a Liberian NGO.

He commended LOFANET and NARDA for their contributions to the fight against Ebola in the county.
