The Association of Evangelicals of Liberia (AEL) says it remains committed in the provisions of safe drinking water for residents of Zota District and other parts of Bong County.
AEL is the largest network of churches and agencies of Evangelical affiliation in Liberia responding to human need with spiritual guidance, compassion and practical care.
Its vision is a Liberian Church that is faithful to God’s calling to love as Christ loves, evidenced by its practical, holistic and compassionate response to human needs.
Speaking in an interview with The Monrovia Times, AEL Community Development Officer Omega Binda and the Hygiene Promotion Officer Larwo Kobi stated that the organization remains committed to ensuring the provisions of safe drinking water for residents of the District.
AEL has over the past time been working in Zota and Panta Districts to ensure the construction of latrines, hand pumps and hand washing facilities. It has helped around 25 communities so far, and around 85% of those being helped by AEL with water, sanitation, and hygiene education are elderly.
AEL Community Development Officer Omega Binda and the Hygiene Promotion Officer Larwo Kobi noted that as Christian Organization, they are eager to see people living in good health condition especially when they have safe drinking water.
“Providing the needed assistance for our people in Liberia is paramount to us as a humanitarian organization working in the country” they add.
They stated that the construction of hand pumps in Belefanai and Global Village is currently been done noting that AEL will continue working with local communities in Zota and other parts of the County.
The two AEL Officials have expressed gladness over the cooperation between the Organization and the People of Zota District stating that their cooperation motivates the Organization to keep helping them.
Binda and Kobi have reassured citizens of the county of the commitment of the Association of Evangelicals of Liberia (AEL) in providing assistance to many communities in the County.
They at the same time used the medium to calls on other Non-Governmental Organizations, well-meaning Liberian and the national government to come to the aids of these venerable communities in order to be safe.
