The WASH Consultative Meeting brought together 50 members of civil society organizations and community leaders who discussed issues of WASH in Bomi County.

Giving an overview of the meeting, the Secretary-General of WASH CSOs, A. Saydee Monboe, said the purpose of the meeting was to inform leaders what is expected of them in the year 2014.

“To tell our leaders what is affecting us, to provide information that you will use to engage your leaders both local and international and to pass a resolution about what we discussed in Tubmanburg,” Mr. Monboe said.

Mr. Monboe said the meeting was also intended to discuss problems encountered in the county, towns and communities in relation to access to safe and pure drinking water and better sanitation or latrines.
