MONROVIA, LIBERIA- Liberian President, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, is appealing to donor institutions and partners to fulfill their commitments to assist post- Ebola countries of the Mano River Union (MRU).

President Sirleaf underscored the need to build a resilient health system of Liberia after the Ebola crisis.

She also said:  “There is an urgent need to rebuild the education and security sectors of the country.”

The Liberian Leader made the appeal Thursday at a one day meeting of Heads of State of the Mano River Union held in the Guinean capital. Conakry.

In 2015, some partners and donor institutions made commitments at the UN- sponsored Donor Conference on Ebola- affected countries held in Washington, DC, the United States.

The conference was intended to mobilize financial resources for Ebola-affected countries, especially for the revitalization of their respective economies and health sectors.

Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea were the worst affected Ebola countries in West Africa.

Currently, the three Mano River Union countries have since been declared Ebola free by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Meanwhile, President Sirleaf and delegation have returned home following the meeting.
