NAYCOM donates to quarantine homes in Koya Chiefdom


The National Youth Commission in collaboration with the Ministry of Youth Affairs under its Young Women Empowerment Programme, has donated food items to quarantined homes in the Koya Chiefdom, Port Loko district.

The items include, bags of rice, onion, Maggie, cooking oil among others.
The Deputy Commissioner of the National Youth Commission, Mrs. Amanita Sillah-Bangura said the items were provided to help these families who have became victims of the deadly virus.

She said so far the impact of losing a loved one has been graved for especially women and children. She said the Commission feels the plight of these young women and children as we all put hands on deck to put an end to the Ebola scourge.   


Receiving the items on behalf of quarantine homes in his chiefdom, the Paramount Chief of Koya Chiefdom, Alhaji Bai Kompra Bomboli II said many people in his chiefdom have succumbed to the virus.

He said in order to help the government and other stakeholders in to eradicate this virus he said they have embarked on sensitization and local security in the chiefdom. PC Bomboli II said they are watchful of who visits their chiefdom to prevent further spread of the virus.


The Port Loko District Youth Council Public Relations Officer, Abdul Bangura, claimed that from the 30th of November 2014, the Chiefdom has buried about 230 people who died from Ebola.

He continued saying that young people were more affected by the virus because of what he called “their stubbornness and lack of understanding”.
In a similar vein, the Commission also donated veronica buckets, soaps and other items to Ataya Bases, Saloons and Market places within Freetown.

According to the Deputy Commissioner, the items were meant to help prevent the spread of the virus. She noted that many young people still meet in fairly large numbers in these places for different purposes.

She assured the young people that the Commission will remain supportive of the governments call for all to join in the fight against the Ebola. She encouraged the youth to stay safe and stop the transmission.
