WFP Hands Over Physical Assets To GoL
By Robert Dixon, LINA

BUCHANAN, June 30 (LINA) –The United Nations World Food Program (WFP) has turned over the management of its infrastructure assets deployed during the Ebola outbreak in Liberia to the government.

Speaking Tuesday during the handover ceremony in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County, WFP Country Director Sory Ouane named the assets as the logistics hub at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Stadium in Paynesville, Monrovia, which has been relocated to the ELWA site, and forwarded logistics hubs in five counties.

He also said that the WFP handed over all established mobile storage units in all 15 counties with the first handover at the Roberts International Airport (RIA) on April 18, specifically to the Liberia Airport Authority, which kicked off the gradual transitional handover effort

He named other items donated as five trucks, five light vehicles and 25 laptop computers and medical supplies under its care to the Ministry of Health

Ouane noted that after Liberia was declared Ebola free in January 2016, the UN food agency with the aim to help strengthen government’s logistics capacity, devised a special operation to transfer the logistics supply chain assets and skills developed during the Ebola response.

He said WFP also successfully completed capacity strengthening on supply chain management through on-the-job and indoor training for 25 government staffs from the General Services Agency (GSA) in September 2015.

Receiving the items on behalf of the government, Deputy GSA Director Cole Bangalu thanked the WFP family for the assets, and promised to wisely utilize the logistics, infrastructure and assets for the betterment of the people of Liberia.

Also making remarks,  Deputy Health Minister and head of the Ebola Incident Management System, Tolbert Nyenswah, said WFP did a lot for the country during the Ebola period, and thanked the agency for all the help it has provided to the Government of Liberia to boost the health sector.
