TUBMANBURG, Feb 3 (LINA) - A United States-based organization, the St. Joseph Food Patronage of New York on Monday donated medical and non-medical items to several institutions in Bomi County.

The Chief Executive of the organization, Dr. Michael Abu Jones, said the gesture is the organization’s way of identifying with people of the county.

The consignment donated included laptops, cartons of books and medical supplies. He said the items cost over US$70,000.
