Nimba Leaders Redirect Ebola Fund  

By Wellington G Patrick, LINA Nimba County Correspondent

SANNIQUELLIE, February 25 (LINA) - Leaders of Nimba County have unanimously agreed to redirect the use of the Musa Bility Ebola Fund from the direct fight against the virus to building the technical capacity of clinics across the county.

The Musa Bility Fund was established in Monrovia during the height of the Ebola outbreak by prominent Nimbians to raise money to beef up the strength of the county's Ebola taskforce.

Speaking at the just-ended Nimba County Council Sitting in Sanniquellie, the Executive Director of the Liberia Crusaders for Peace Ambassador Juli Endee, who heads the seven-member committee, disclosed that the body has raised US$177,000 and L$22,105.

Ambassador Endee also said US$56,000 and L$22,000 were pledged and are yet to be received by the committee, noting that the donations were made by Nimbians at home and in the Diaspora.

Following her deliberation, the delegates voted to divert the use of the funds from the direct fight against the Ebola virus to the improvement of clinic projects in the county.
