The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) has donated shelter tents to the Bureau of Immigration and Nationalization (BIN) to ensure effective monitoring of the various border points to prevent the resurgence of Ebola.
The UNDP Deputy Country Director Clophas Torori presented the shelter tents to the BIN Commissioner Lemuel Reeves Thursday to ensure the fortification of all
crossing areas In Liberia at the BIN head office in Monrovia.
Director Torori pointed out that the tents are intended to facilitate the deployment of BIN officers at all official and non-official crossing points between Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea to ensure that the Ebola virus carriers do not cross into Liberia again, as well as to prevent other criminal activities along the border areas.
He stressed that the tents, which are estimated at US$34,000, were procured from Dubai to help fight Ebola in Liberia, noting that despite the count-down of Ebola in the country, it is crucial to ensure that the necessary preventative measures are in place until Liberia is declared Ebola free.
Meanwhile, the Deputy UNDP Director has disclosed that the institution is expected to implement a US$3.6 million program to effectively and efficiently carry out border patrol in Liberia which will be sponsored by the Japanese Government to help strengthen and protect various entry points in the country.
