16 Klay Health Workers Get ‘Flowers’
By David Seedee, LINA Bomi County Correspondent
TUBMANBURG, April 24 (LINA) - Sixteen health workers in Klay District, Bomi County have been recognized for their “tireless efforts in serving the State and humanity.”
The honorees were drawn from Sasstown, Gonja, Beajah and Gonzipu health centers in the district.
Speaking during a ceremony at the Klay Town Hall recently, National Port Authority Deputy Managing Director Curtis Johnson said the honoring ceremony was his way of thanking the health workers for the services rendered humanity since their assignment at all eight health centers in the district.
Johnson, a son of Klay District, said it was time for national leaders and ordinary Liberians to realize the importance of recognizing people who make meaningful and sacrificial contributions in the country.
Also speaking, the Bomi County Health Officer (CHO), Rhoda Peters, said Johnson’s kind gesture of appreciating the health workers “is timely and highly commendable.”
Peters said even though they are under oath to perform their duties, the certification serves as a motivation for the health workers to do more.
Speaking on behalf of the Health Workers Association Bomi County branch, the Secretary-General of the association, Kerkula Togba, praised Johnson for “such an initiative in the district.”
He said the occasion is the first of its kind and called on county authorities to follow Johnson’s example.
