HLF School Receives Ebola Prevention Materials

In an effort to train school staffers to ensure Ebola safety measures on campuses, the government, in collaboration with a local NGO, organized a one-day workshop before the reopening of our school.  Three of our staffers attended.

Two days after the workshop, a local NGO known as MAP presented some Ebola prevention materials to our school. The items, which were provided by UNICEF and distributed by the NGO, included the following:

When our school reopened, the staffers who attended the Ebola prevention workshop carried out a two-hour awareness session at the school, educating both students and staff who did not have the opportunity to attend the workshop.

Our kids and our staff have begun observing and practicing these Ebola prevention measures so as to help continue the fight against the Ebola virus, which has not totally left our country.
