Bomi’s Joseph Town Yearns For Latrines, Safe Water

By David Pamas Seedee, LINA Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, May 26 (LINA) - The Chairman of the Joseph Town Community in Tubmanburg, Bomi County, Mr, Amos Cooper, has revealed that the community lacks public latrines and safe drinking water. 

Cooper said the community is struggling with safe drinking water supply for its 3,000 inhabitants, as there is only one water pump, while there is no garbage dump site. 

He told Liberia News Agency in Tubmanburg on Monday that due to the lack of these important services, the sanitary and hygienic condition is posing risk to the health of the residents.

He said most of the houses in the community were built without latrines indoors and occupants of these houses use the bush to defecate. 

According to Cooper, if nothing is done to find a solution to the problem of the public latrines and safe water sources, residents who cannot afford to buy mineral water will go to the nearby creek or use the rain water for drinking.
