Church Donates To Tubmanburg Hospital

By David Seedee, LINA Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, August 21 (LINA) - The New Water in the Desert Assembly Church near the Po River in Brewerville, Montserrado County, has donated assorted food and medical supplies to the government hospital in Tubmanburg, Bomi County.

Items donated, according to the Liberia News Agency, are seven bags of rice, five gallons of oil, salt, one pack of personal protective equipment, drugs and other materials for Ebola-related use.

Presenting the supplies, Bomi County Superintendent Samuel Brown said the gesture was the church’s contribution towards catering to Ebola-infected persons at the Bomi Quarantine Center.

Superintendent Brown said the church has recognized the efforts of healthcare workers and stressed the need to prevent the deadly Ebola virus from spreading further in Bomi County.

Receiving the donation, the Acting County Health Officer, Dr. Gabriel Logan, said the donation is timely and assured that it will be strictly used for the intended purpose.

Dr. Logan said the donation came at the time when the county health team lacks food to feed suspected Ebola patients in the county.

He said the increase in Ebola infections in the county caused the health team to establish a quarantine center for Ebola victims before transferring them to Monrovia.

Logan said the health team is grateful to the church for thinking about the hospital at this critical period.
