VOINJAMA, April 26 (LINA)-The Bangladeshi Non-governmental Organization BRAC-Liberia with support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), is currently implementing a nine-month psychosocial project for Ebola Survivors and Orphans in Lofa County.
The project valued at about $1.2 Million United States dollars seeks to reintegrate Ebola survivors in their communities.
Speaking during the Ebola orphans and survivors welcome ceremony in the provincial capital Voinjama recently, Brac Country Representative Mohammed Abdus Salam said the project is also intended to discourage stigmatization of Ebola orphans and survivors by community members in Lofa County.
Mr. Salam said Brac along with implementing partners will continue to provide psychosocial training for community leaders in the reintegration of Ebola orphans and survivors across Lofa County.
Meanwhile, the BRAC official is urging community dwellers to get involved in the program by providing awareness to their residents and stop stigmatizing Ebola survivors and orphans.
Also speaking during the program, USAID Senior Program Operations Specialist for Humanitarian and Global Engagement in the Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance Mr. Wayland “Greg” Holyfield, said USAID will continue to buttress government’s efforts in providing psychosocial services in the fight against the deadly Ebola virus not only in Lofa, but  Liberia as whole.
Speaking earlier during the Ebola orphans and survivors welcome ceremony on behalf of the Lofa County Health Team, Mr. Prince Sesay lauded BRAC-Liberia and other partners for buttressing government’s effort in the  fight against Ebola, and promised to set aside a date to honor these partners.
