NGO, CHT On Anemia Awareness In Two River Gee Cities
By Justice C. Gaddeh, LINA River Gee County Correspondent

FISHTOWN, August 25 (LINA) - Samaritan’s Purse International Relief (SP) in collaboration with the River Gee County Health Team (CHT) is conducting anemia prevention or low blood sensitization in two cities in River Gee County.

Making the disclosure to the Liberia News Agency in Fish Town Monday, River Gee and Maryland Nutrition Coordinator Joseph Saah Yollah, said the campaign which kicked off on Monday will target children between the ages six to 23 months, using the Micro-nutrient Powder (MNP).

Yollah, who named the two cities as Fish Town and Sarbo Sweaken, said the pilot project is aimed at preventing low blood in children across River Gee County, adding: “This campaign will cover the entire country, but for now we are targeting children in River Gee and Bomi counties.”

He noted that prior to the launch, the two institutions held a three-day orientation meeting sponsored by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) that brought together 80 stakeholders from the two cities to discuss the overview and importance of the MNP.

Samaritan’s Purse International Relief is a non-profit, non-denominational evangelical Christian organization that has been providing spiritual and physical support to victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease and famine with the purpose of sharing God’s words through Jesus Christ since 1970.
