By Chris Nyenapee, LINA Grand Gedeh County Correspondent

ZWEDRU, June 13 (LINA) -Three ministries of government have been added to the Ministry of Public Works (MPW) to coordinate Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) activities in the counties.

The disclosure was made at the National Water, Sanitation and Hygiene promotion committee secretariat focal person, Assistant Minister George Yarngo at the capacity strengthening and sub-coordination session in Zwedru.

Minister Yarngo, who headed the team to Grand Gedeh and River Gee Counties, named the Ministries of Health, Education and Internal Affairs as the ministries added to work along with MPW to coordinate WASH activities with partners in the county.

ICRC, WHH LISH, RIDA, UNICEF and others were some partners identified.

In a related development, Yarngo has praised the German Agro Action for its intervention in WASH during a tour of two communities in Cavalla District.

 He said after the inspection of Solo and Kahn Communities as open defecation free (ODF), the construction of latrines, bath rooms and rack for dishes and general cleanliness of the towns with use of local materials have made these communities to be declared as ODF.

Similar missions from the MPW are in the Central and Western regions of the country to spread the new WASH through public awareness, Yarngo told the Liberia News Agency shortly before departure from Zwedru to Fish Town, River Gee County.
