Kids From Gaygba Town, Nearby Villages Reintegrated Into Society

By Richard D. Baysah, LINA Margibi County Correspondent

KAKATA, March 15 (LINA) – Over a dozen children from Gaygba Camp and nearby villages have been reintegrated into their communities after a period of quarantine to curb the spread of Ebola.

Performing the ceremony Saturday, acting Margibi County Health Officer, Dr. Adolphus Yeiah, said he was “very delighted to have these kids once again reunited with their families” following the death of a man in the area from the Ebola virus.

Dr. Yeiah disclosed that a total of 15 children aged three to13 years were taken to a temporary safe home in Kakata to prevent them from coming into contact with the Ebola virus in Gaygba Camp and surrounding villages.

All of the children returned home safe and healthy, he said.

They were catered for during their stay at the safe home by the NGO Action for the Needy Development Program (ANDP).

Meanwhile, ANDP has donated food and non-food items to the children following their reintegration into the communities.

ANDP Executive Director Augustine Musah said he was making the donation to the children to enable them re-start their lives.

He said after going through some trauma, it was expedient to provide them with items that will comfort them.

Receiving the children on behalf of their parents, Sarah Tamba said she was delighted to have them back home and thanked the County Health Team and ANDP for taking care of the future generation from being wiped out by Ebola.
