Tia River Union in collaboration with Beimount Hospital in Michigan in the United States of America, recently donated foodstuff, and Ebola prevention equipment to quarantined communities in Kori Chiefdom, Moyamba District.
The consignment worth over one thousand dollars was on behalf of the Union handed over to the community by the Chairman of the Moyamba District Council, Herbert Bobson Kandeh.
Professor Bob Kandeh told the indigenes that the donation is part of the Union’s strides towards preventing the further spread of the Ebola virus in Kori Chiefdom.
The Council Chairman explained that the donation is an urgent response of the Union on hearing about the outbreak of the virus in the Chiefdom which resulted in the quarantine of Fobgo and Tiama Refugee Camp.
The money according to Bob Kandeh will be given to the hospital staff at Tiama and Njala.
He encouraged the recipients to utilise the donations for their intended purposes.
Receiving the items, the Chief of Mokonde, John Goba expressed gratitude to the descendants, describing the donation as timely because the foodstuff is highly desired to sustain the quarantined communities.
Similar appreciations were expressed by other stakeholders of the District.
