ArcelorMittal Offers Free Surgeries In Yekepa
By Wellington Patrick, LINA Nimba County Correspondent
SANNIQUELLIE, May 28 (LINA) -Three medical doctors from Spain and Brazil have begun dental and ophthalmological surgeries at the ArcelorMittal Hospital in Yekepa, Nimba County.
ArcelorMittal communication Director for Yekepa, Jerry Mwagbe, told journalists in Yekepa Tuesday that the doctors are in the country in continuation of the annual celebration of the company’s volunteer week, referred to as ArcelorMittal Solidarity Week.
The celebration is globally observed in April of every year, but its equivalent free services were delayed for Liberia due to the recent outbreak of the Ebola virus across the country.
The doctors and a Belgian nurse, who arrived in Liberia early last week, are using a Mobile Clinic to offer advanced medical services to residents and employees of AML in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County.
The team is expected to be in Nimba from May 27-30 to offer medical services to employees of AML, their families, beneficiaries and residents of neighboring villages and towns.
