BUCHANAN, September 7 (LINA) - Two schools in Grand Bassa County have made donations to the county’s Task Force on Ebola in support of its work.
The World Wide Mission of Liberia donated 25 boxes of medical hand gloves, seven boxes of bed sheets and pillow cases and syringes.
Making the presentation, Henry Gweh, a member of World Wide Mission said the Mission had made several donations to other health facilities in Buchanan City since last week, including St. Peter Catholic Health Center and the CEM.
He said that he had travelled from the United States purposely to ensure that the medical supplies are distributed to health centers in Bassa.
Receiving the items on behalf of the Task Force, Dr. Joseph L.Kerkula thanked the mission for its donation, saying “one of the things we always look at is strengthening and improving our patient care.”
He said the items will help maintaining those standards of health care delivery to the sick.
Also making donation, during the regular Ebola meeting the Annie T. Doe Memorial Institute presented several items to the Ebola Task Force worth over US$ 600.
The items included 25 buckets, one cartoon Dettol, one cartoon of power soap, one cartoon detergent and 15 bags of chlorine.
Making the presentation, Chapman Adams, a member of the institution, said that the items were donated by Madam Sayor D. Saryoe, Founder and Chairperson of the school board in the USA.
According to the Liberia News Agency, Adams said that Madam Saryoe gave these items in support of the eradication of Ebola in Bassa.
Receiving the items, Grand Bassa County Superintendent Etweda Cooper thanked the institution for the contribution and said “every drop of water makes a mighty ocean and I will consider this gesture as a large contribution in the stoppage of the Ebola virus in Bassa.”
