(LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has mandated the heads of ministries to commit US$5,000 each from their budget as initial payment for 20 housing units for health workers at the National Housing Authority (NHA) Gobah Town Housing Estate in Brewerville.

The Liberian leader made the pronouncement Monday at a program marking the official launch of the NHA “Health Workers Home Ownership Campaign” held at a local hotel in Monrovia.

According to NHA authorities, the Home Ownership Campaign is to demonstrate gratitude to health workers for their service to humanity, as they formed an integral part of the nation’s efforts to eradicate Ebola from Liberia.

At the program, about 55 health workers from 11 health facilities, including doctors and nurses, were honored for their role in the fight against Ebola. Out of this number, 14 were randomly selected through a raffle draw by some officials of government to own 14 of the 20 housing units.

Those selected were Mayoe Kellen, Etta M. Flomo, and Patty McClain of Phebe Hospital in Bong County; Aaron B. Massaley of St. Timothy Hospital; Louise Gaye of ELWA Hospital; Evan-Lin Wonlue, Mamah Wilmot, Nyanpu Oppong of SOS Children Village.

Others include Cynthia Gardner and Edward Mulbah of Seventh Day Adventist Cooper Hospital; Joyce B. Teage of Arcelor Mittal Hospital in Buchanan; Marie Vesselee of Redemption Hospital; Garmai Q. Johnson of Hope for Women International and Ciatta Kassellie of the James Davies Memorial Hospital in Paynesville.
