UNMEER Commends New Georgia Community’s Efforts In Ebola Fight

MONROVIA, December 10 (LINA)-The United Nations Secretary General’s Special Representative of the United Nations Mission on Ebola Emergency Response (UNMEER), Anthony Banbury, has described as ‘inspirational’ the efforts of the New Georgia Community in the fight against Ebola.

“It’s really inspirational to feel the sense of community effort that exists here in New Georgia. It’s also inspirational to see the results of the community to fight Ebola and chase it out of the community – to look after survivors, to care for the sick, to be such a role model for other communities - I’m really inspired by it,” he said.

Dr. Banbury said government and communities must lead the fight that will eventually defeat Ebola. He said partners, including UN agencies, are all making valuable contributions to the fight, but that they are here to support the efforts. “With the leadership of your government and the action of communities, I know you will succeed in chasing
Ebola out of Liberia,” he said.

According to an Executive Mansion release, the UN envoy made the statement when he joined President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to launch the “Ebola Must Go!! Ebola is Everybody’s Business,” campaign at the Christ Kingdom Harvest Church in the New Georgia Community on Monday, December 8, 2014.

During the campaign, President Sirleaf pledged US$5,000 to the church, while the UNMEER pledged US$10,000 to the campaign and another US$1,000 to the community.
