Ebola Survivors In Lofa Appeal For Training

By Korboi K. Gbelewala, LINA Lofa County Correspondent

VOINJAMA, May 29 (LINA) - Ebola survivors in Lofa County are appealing to government and international partners to help provide skills training opportunities for them.

The spokesperson for the Ebola survivors, Miss Korto Sumo, said even though they appreciate the gestures from government and its partners during the Ebola fight, there was a need to provide additional support through training in tailoring, soap-making and tie-dying, among other income generating sources, to make them productive citizens.

Sumo also appealed to the government to carry out Psychosocial Counseling for Ebola survivors at schools and public institutions to make them mentally strong in dealing with acts of stigmatization in their communities.

She made the appeal on recently at programs marking a three-day visit of Liberia’s Chief Medical Officer-designate, Dr. Francis Kateh, to Lofa County.

She is urging citizens of the county to stop stigmatizing Ebola survivors and noted that stigmatizing them will further worsen their situation and make life even more unbearable for them.
