CLUS DONATES Sanitation Materials To Communities -To Alleviate Environmental Challenges

The Cheesemanburg Landfill Urban Sanitation (CLUS) Project, an initiative supported by development partners to provide improved access to solid waste management (SWM) services in Monrovia, has made a donation of an assortment of personal protective equipment (PPEs) and fumigation cans to various communities located within the vicinity of the project sites in Monrovia and its environs. 

Making the presentation on behalf of the Mayor of the City Government of Monrovia, the Project Coordinator, Attorney Edwin D. Johnson, said the CLUS Project was donating the PPEs under the auspices of the Monrovia City Corporation (MCC) in fostering the partnership cooperation between the communities and the MCC in regard to proper solid wastes disposal and management in the project located communities.  Attorney Johnson said the donation was part of an effort by the MCC to promote the health and safety of dwellers of the communities in which the Cheesemanburg Landfill Urban Sanitation (CLUS) Project is being implemented.

He thanked the residents for the level of support and cooperation that has from time to time been received, noting “the residents have been according to the maximum cooperation and support to the Monrovia City Corporation in the implementation of the CLUS Project, and as such we are always happy to identify with them.” He  admonished the community leaders to use the items donated for the intended purpose as well as to ensure the involvement of all community dwellers.

Accepting the donation on behalf of the communities, the spokespersons for each of the communities thanked the MCC for the donation and pledged their support in sustaining the project in their communities. One of the leaders, Jerry Sankpaho, who spoke to newsmen said the donation will go a long way in solving most of the environmental issues being encountered against the backdrop of lack of materials being experienced in the past and the communities have to go through health challenges associated with poor waste management and collection

The donation included several assorted items of nose masks, reflective jackets, gloves and fumigation cans, and chemicals that are to be used to carry out fumigation activities within the target communities that host the waste stations and landfill site of the Monrovia City Corporation. These communities include Fiamah Community, Stockton Creek Community and Whein Town community.

According to a press release from the project, a training program for waste management and fumigation was also conducted for the affected communities to support and enhance proper waste management.
