Moyamba District Council chairman who is also chair of the Inclusive District Peace and Development Committee(IDPDC) has emphasized the need for organizations and communities in the district to put hands on deck to raise funds for the implementation of projects
According to Prof Herbert Bob Kandeh,communities have a lot of local resources that should be tapped into for the development of their various areas but continue to depend on external support.He was addressing members of IDPDC in Moyamba recently.
He mentioned that the formation of IDPDC is not a replacement of existing structures in the district but plays vital roles in the development of communities especially in the post ebola era
He said if communities want to recover in the post ebola phase they should work very hard so that whoever comes to the aid will be complimenting their efforts.
Dilating on activities of IDPDC,he explained that they have resolved the impasse between stakeholders and MSF construction company.He said the issue has to do with camp site as the company decided to build it in Tonkolili district.He said with the intervention of members,the issue was resolved as the company has now resolved to employ citizens of Moyamba district while the camp still remains in Tonkolili for technical reasons
