BUCHANAN, May 27 (LINA) – About 150 participants from four districts and three cities in Grand Bassa County have ended a one-day workshop on post-Ebola activities and prevention at the Bassa Women Development Association (BAWODA) head office in Buchanan.
The workshop, which ended on Monday, taught participants contact tracing, counseling, refresher and trainer of trainers about the golden rules set by the Ministry of Health to curb the spread of the Ebola virus.
According to the CEO of BAWODA, Ms. Martha Karnga, those preventive methods are still being enforced though Liberia is declared Ebola free.
She said “once our neighbors (Guinea and Sierra Leone) are yet to be certificated, we still have a job to do and so we trained these people to go back in to their communities to help tell people to make use of the clinics and hospitals whenever they are sick”
Participants thanked the facilitators and BAWODA staff for the level of knowledge they received from series of trainings and workshops in making their voices to be heard among others in the society.
The workshop was one in a series of four being sponsored by the American Jewish World Service (AJWS).
