By Korboi K Gbelewala, LINA Lofa County Correspondent
VOINJAMA, March 10 (LINA) - Lofa County Superintendent George Dunor is calling on authorities of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to provide more awareness to citizens of Lofa on the preservation of the forest and wildlife.
Superintendent Dunor is urging the EPA to also provide education to the citizens about the importance of conserving the forest and preventing those things that are responsible for disasters across the country.
The Lofa County official made the call Tuesday when he visited victims of a heavy rain storm that devastated the homes of scores of residents in Voinjama on Friday.
He described the disaster as “a great loss to the people” of Lofa, stressing: “While our people are trying to recover from the economic and social problems left behind by the Ebola virus, the disaster has added insult to injury.”
Meanwhile, Dunor is appealing to humanitarian organizations to help provide assistance to the victims who are desperately in need of zinc, nails and household materials.
