( 3, 2016)- The residents of Clara Town in Monrovia are expected to benefit from improved Water, Sanitation and Hygiene facilities soon.

This followed the resumption of a one million United States dollar Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Project by some specialized agencies of the United Nations under its Ebola Recovery Multi-Partner Trust Fund.

The implementing agencies of the project include UNICEF, ILO and UN-HABITAT Liberia Country Office.

Others are in the Monrovia City Corporation, Ministry of Public Works and the Liberia Water and Sewer Corporation (LWSC).

Upon the completion of the project, the Clara Town residents’ comforts will be restored through the provision of safe drinking water and improved sanitary environment for more than seventy thousand residents of the area.

Meanwhile, a two-day Stakeholders Project Inception Workshop began Tuesday, March 1, 2016   at the Community Center in Clara Town.

Addressing the opening ceremony, UN-HABITAT Head of Office in Liberia, Anthony Lamba, said: “The workshop is intended to solicit the views of residents and sensitize them to take ownership of the project.”

“The decision to host the project is based on the lessons learnt during the Ebola outbreak response and the role WASH played in fighting the disease,” he noted.

Ebola Recovery Multi -Partner Trust Fund will be implemented through community-based approaches with considerable emphasis on skills development in the targeted community.
