Gaygba Camp, Papa’s Village Residents Crave Hand Pumps

By Richard D. Baysah, LINA Margibi County Correspondent

KAKATA, March 17 (LINA) - The last Ebola survivor released from the Kakata Ebola Treatment Unit, Ms. Hawa Forkpa, has appealed o government and partners to construct hand pumps in Gaygba Camp and Papa’s Village in Borlorla Township.

Borlorla Township is located in Gibi District, Margibi County.

She made the appeal on behalf of the residents in an interview with the Liberia News Agency and emphasized that the absence of safe drinking water has resulted into women walking long distances to fetch clean drinking water.

Ms. Forkpa said the lack of safe drinking water was a serious problem especially during the dry season, prompting her appeal for intervention.

Gaygba Camp and Papa’s villages were the two remaining villages in the country that were still under quarantine that was lifted over the weekend by the Liberian Government after successfully completing the process.

It can be recalled that on January 25, 2015, the couple John and Hawa Forkpa left their Saint Paul Bridge Community in Monrovia for Kakata

Upon their arrival in Kakata, they visited a local clinic where John received treatment but later left for Gaygba Camp where he died on February 1.

This situation led to the quarantining of Gaygba Camp and surrounding villages after a test proved John died of the Ebola virus.
