WASH Commission Launches High Schools Water and Sanitation Protocol Inspection Exercise in Margibi, Bong and Montserrado Counties


National Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Commission (WASH Commission), has begun a two week inspection exercise that seeks to allow high schools in Margibi, Bong and Montserrado Counties be in compliance with water and sanitation protocols.

The project which worth $ US 18,000 according to WASH Commission Chief Executive Officer Bobby Whitefield, is part of efforts in  fighting against COVID-19.

Addressing a news conference, the head of the Commission spotlighted sanitation as a major component to safe environment, adding that the project will set the pace for decisions about water and sanitation in high schools to be reached.

The assurance comes in the wake of what he calls “massive outreach inspection” that will touch over three thousand high schools in the three counties.

According to the WASH Commission Boss, the inspection will serve as a deterrent to proprietors and administrators who are in violations to water, sanitation and hygienic protocols.

Mr. Whitefield also pointed out that it is expected of various high schools to display sanitary materials provided them and mandate students to ahead to health protocols as they resume activities at schools.

The head of WASH Commission furthered that, the Commission is concern about the maintenance of the safe school protocols that was set up by the Ministry of Education prior to the opening of schools.
