U.S.-based Klay Citizens Cry for Clinic in Bomi’s “Oldest Town”

Monrovia, 04/21/14 (LINA) – Citizens of Klay, Bomi County, residing in the United States of America have stressed the need for a public health care facility in Klay.

They believe a health care facility in Klay “will greatly enhance government's health care delivery program.”

The United States-based Klay citizens say a public clinic in Klay town is “extremely necessary because the town hosts five institutions of learning, a popular market center, and a major transportation hub, amongst others.

In a dispatch to the Liberia News Agency Tuesday, the “United Klay Organization in the Americas” described Klay as “the oldest and most centralized district headquarters in Bomi County.”

The organization expressed thanks and appreciation to the Sirleaf Administration “for its efforts to develop Bomi and Liberia in general,” but emphasized the need for the Government to prioritize health care delivery across Liberia.

The Chairman of the organization’s Board of Directors, Deacon Telee Brown of Staten Island in New York, said “We particularly laud the government for effectively combating the recent Ebola virus outbreak in Liberia.”

The organization groups Liberians from Klay in the diaspora, former Peace Corps volunteers, and other American friends of Klay. The organization says it has helped to upgrade the school building in Klay, built a shelter for an outdoor kitchen at the school, sent a large shipment of textbooks to Klay from the United States, and helped support the building of bookcases for the library.  It has also constructed a bus stop where the main road intersects Klay Town.
