Pres. Sirleaf Donates Motorbike To Leprosy Center
By Calvin Brooks

MONROVIA, June 26 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has donated a motorbike to the Suakoko Leprosy Center in Bong County to help ease the transportation problem at the center.

The Coordinator of the President’s Office, Toe Wesseh, presented the motorbike Thursday to the spokesman of the Suakoko Leprosy Center, Steve Kennedy, in Congo Town.

According to Mr. Wesseh, the donation was in fulfillment of a promise President Sirleaf made recently to the center when she went to dedicate the Angie Brooks Youth Center in Bong County.

Wesseh explained that the motorbike is intended to transport leprosy patients from the center to the Phebe Hospital, and hoped it would not be used for commercial purposes.

He said President Sirleaf was delighted to meet with patients of the center and expressed willingness to help upgrade facilities at the center to enhance the living condition of the leprosy patients.

Meanwhile, the Leprosy Center spokesman Kennedy has expressed gratitude to President Sirleaf for the kind gesture and hoped that the Liberian leader would assist in renovating the center.

Kennedy indicated that the center is in a deplorable condition, noting that this was creating difficulties for most of the leprosy patients who sleep on the floor due to lack of beds.

He said the center recently lost three patients as the result of the intake of unsafe drinking water.

For his part, the Youth Chairman of Unity Party in Bong County, Curtis Dorley, who was instrumental in ensuring that the center received a motorbike, also thanked President Sirleaf who, he said, has been the only Liberian President to visit the Suakoko Leprosy Center since it was established.
