Bong Christian Group Celebrates Ebola-Free Society

GBARNGA, August 17 (LINA) – Members of the Bong County Christian Association (BOCA) have gathered to pray and give praises to God for eradicating Ebola from Liberia at the Gbarnga Administration Building.

Following the service at the weekend, BOCA President and Pastor of the Chief Compound Assembly of God Church, Rev. Jacob Q. Samway, said the service was in recognition of God’s blessings on the nation in the fight against Ebola.

Rev. Samway said though Liberia has made significant strides in the fight against Ebola, Christians in the county also prayed for neighboring Guinea and Sierra Leone to overcome the disease.

At the program, BOCA honored Rev. Victor Padmore, Chairman of the Psychosocial Committee of the Bong County Ebola Response Taskforce, Bong County Health Officer Dr. Sampson Azuakoi and Superintendent Selena Polson Mappy for their leadership roles in fighting the Ebola virus.

Others include Madam Dorothy Tooman, Executive Director Development
Education Network Liberia, the Liberian National Red Cross Bong County Chapter, Radio Gbarnga and Super Bongese Radio.

It can be recalled that Christians from across Bong County in June 2014 launched a massive campaign to sensitize church members and community residents to join government and partners in eradicating Ebola from the country.

BOCA also partnered with the County Ebola Response Taskforce to establish the psychosocial committee that is also partnered with the World Food Program to distribute food ration to Ebola-affected communities around the county at the time.
