(elbcradio.com/July 21, 2015)-President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf has mandated the Heads of government Ministries and agencies to commit US$5,000.00 each from their budget to support local health workers.

The amount is an initial payment for 20 housing units for health workers at the National Housing Authority (NHA) Gobah Town Housing Estate in Brewerville.

The Liberian Leader made the pronouncement Monday at a program marking the official launch of the NHA “Health Workers Home Ownership Campaign” held at a local hotel in Monrovia.

According to NHA authorities, the “Home Ownership Campaign” is to demonstrate gratitude to health workers for their service to humanity, as they formed an integral part of the nation’s efforts to eradicate Ebola from Liberia.

At the program, about 55 health workers from 11 health facilities, including Doctors and Nurses, were honored for their role in the fight against Ebola.

Out of the 55 health workers, 14 were randomly selected, through a raffle draw, by some officials of government to own 14 of the 20 housing units.

Those selected are Mayoe Kellen, Etta Flomo, and Patty McClain of the Phebe Hospital in Bong County, Aaron Massaley of the St. Timothy Hospital, and Louise Gaye of the ELWA Hospital.

Others are Evan-Lin Wonlue, Mamah Wilmot, and Nyanpu Oppong all of the SOS Children Village.

Cynthia Gardner and Edward Mulbah of the Seven Day Advantage (SDA) Cooper Hospital, Joyce Teage of Arcelor Mittal Hospital were also selected.

Also, Marie Vesselee of Redemption Hospital, Garmai Johnson of the Hope for Women International and Ciatta Kassellie of the James Davies Memorial Hospital were among the 14 health workers selected to benefit from the gesture.
