NGO Educate Traders On Cholera
The Young and Lonely Foundation, Ghana (YLF), a non-governmental organisation (NGO) based at Agona Swedru, has held a day's seminar on cholera prevention for about 40 traders at Akim Oda in the Birim Central Municipality. The participants comprising market women and porters were expected to convey messages on techniques for the elimination of cholera to their colleagues. Speaking at the function, Mr Gilbert Kofi Germain Executive Director of the NGO, urged the traders to keep their market stalls and surroundings clean to guarantee good health and avert cholera outbreak. He advised them to refrain from buying iced-water from vendors, which he said do not meet basic hygienic standards. Mr Germain advised them not to defecate indiscriminately or litter the environment.
