The African First Ladies Peace Mission, AFLPM, has said that it would soon dispatch relief materials to the Ebola-hit countries of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea.
Dame Patience Jonathan, the AFLPM President and Nigeria’s First Lady, said this at the opening of the third Executive Bureau meeting of the Association in Pretoria, South Africa.
“There is need to undertake a mission to Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, currently confronting the challenge of the Ebola Virus Disease.
“Given the increasing loss of lives and the great need for humanitarian assistance in those countries, it is essential that the Peace Mission rallies support for our sisters and children there.
“I propose that our mission should dispatch relief materials to them in the coming months,” Mrs. Jonathan said.
The Nigerian First Lady said under her stewardship, the association has continued to provide humanitarian support for refugees and internally displaced persons.
She added that relief items including food and other materials were presented to victims of conflicts in Guinea Bissau, Central African Republic and Nigeria.
