Yookude Residents Yearn For Social Services

By John Bropleh, LINA Maryland County Correspondent

HARPER, March 18 (LINA) -Residents of Yookude Township in Harper District, Maryland County, have appealed for hand-pumps and latrines among a number of basic social services needed to improve their living condition.

The township, which comprises three communities with a combined population of 7,825 persons is located five miles northeast of the Harper, the provincial capital of Maryland County.

In an interview with the Liberia News Agency at the weekend, Township Commissioner Teaba Wleh Howe said presently there are only 12, instead of the 30 hand-pumps needed to provide safe and adequate drinking water for the residents.

Commissioner Howe also highlighted the lack of public latrines for residents, compelling them to use the surrounding bushes to defecate.

In another development, Commissioner Howe is appealing to the Government through the Ministry of Health to take over the three-bedroom maternity home constructed and left by Merlin, following the expiration of their contract in the township.

Commissioner Howe said if government furnishes the building, which is already completed, it will help improve the health delivery system in the township.
