MONROVIA, January 14 (LINA) – The Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection has disclosed that it is working with the Ministry of Education (MOE) and United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF) to sponsor  3,231 Ebola orphans in school.

Making the disclosure Wednesday at the Ministry of Information daily Ebola press conference, the
