Rep. Moye Decries Low Support To Dunbar Hospital

By Ballah Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, June 8 (LINA) -Bong County Representative Prince K. Moye has stressed the need to increase the allotment in the 2014/2015 proposed National Budget for the C.B. Dunbar Maternity Hospital in Gbarnga, Bong County.

He said the US$400,000 allotted in the budget was “too small to ensure the effective operation” of the hospital.

Speaking at the launch of the Grassroots Women Latrine Project for the C. B. Dunbar Hospital on Saturday, Representative Moye promised to lobby for increment of the hospital’s allotment in the 2014/15 National Budget.

He said this will enable the hospital to operate effectively without relying on subsidies.

The Bong County lawmaker also called for the re-direction to the hospital of US$60,000 of the US$250,000 budgeted for the assessment of roads in Gbarnga City for pavement.

Also speaking at the launch of the Grassroots Women Latrine Project for the C. B. Dunbar Hospital, Transport Minister S. Tornolah Varpilah frowned on those who advocated for the C. B. Dumbar land to be given to a local bank to build its facilities.

He described this move as a lack of vision, noting that the Grassroots Women Initiative is “a worthy cause” that all well-meaning citizens must support.

“If you women were sitting in the seats in which we sit today, Bong County would have been a changed place because you are all very good planners and we must thank God for you mothers,” said Minister Varpilah.

He and his family contributed L$30,000 towards the project, while Representative Moye made an initial donation of L$20,000, and promised to make an additional contribution.

 Grassroots Women in April this year launched a rally intended to raise L$200,000 in support of the latrine project.
