Red Cross Donates To 185 Flood Victims

MONROVIA, April 4 (LINA) - The Liberia National Red Cross Society (LNRCS) has donated building materials to 185 people from 38 households affected by flood in Margibi County.  

The building materials provided on March 31 included more than 55 bundles of 28 gauge zincs, 75 pieces of combings and 37 boxes of roofing nails, according to a Red Cross release issued Tuesday. 

The Liberian Red Cross had earlier provided planks, nails and other essential building materials to the communities as part of its recovery support to the affected population.

The Red Cross Manager for Disaster Management Christopher Olu Johnson said in a release that the Red Cross is offering hope and support to enable the affected population to rebuild their homes. 

An unprecedented flood hit lower and upper Margibi County and destroyed homes, damaged the means of livelihood and internally displaced more than 15,000 people in 49 communities in June 2016. 

The Liberian Red Cross as part of its emergency response provided relief assistance of non-food items including sleeping mats, pots, buckets, blankets, slippers, laundry soap, lappers and water guide to over 2,500 affected people from 500 families. 

The Red Cross emergency response started in July 2016 immediately after the floods were reported.

Meanwhile, the Liberian Red Cross over the weekend started the distribution of non-food items to over 60 households from the West Point Community relocated in the VOA community in Brewersville.

The non-food items, including mosquito nets, buckets, pots, laundry soap and water guard are meant to address some of the pressing needs, raise their standard of living and help prevent malaria and improve their health status.
