Monrovia, June 24, 2020: As a mark of Government's commitment to ensure Liberians wear masks, a cheque of forty million Liberian Dollars was made available on Wednesday for local production of one million masks.
The locally produced masks will be made by Liberia National Tailors, Textile, Garments and Allied Workers Union. The masks will be distributed across the country among marketers, motorcycle riders, students who are resuming school shortly etc.
The Minister of Internal Affairs Affairs, Varney Sirleaf was appointed recently by President Dr. George Manneh Weah to chair the mask project committee along with others.
60% of the masks will be distributed in Montserrdao County with guidance of the National Response Coordination mechanism, while the rest constituting four hundred thousand pieces of masks will be distributed other 14 counties through the County Superintendents and Health teams.
