U.S. Ambassador Transfers New Health Center to Lofa Officials

BARKEDU, January 28 (LINA) - U.S. Ambassador Deborah Malac has officially handed over the new Barkedu Health Center in Barkedu, Lofa County, to County Health Officer Dr. Joseph Bolongei.

The new health facility was constructed with U.S. Government support through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Rebuilding Basic Health Services (RBHS) program, according to a US embassy release issued Tuesday.

It said the center is one of seven health facilities in Lofa and 40 facilities across the country renovated under USAID’s RBHS project since 2010 at a total cost of over $3.7 million.

It is more than 2.5 times larger than the old clinic and will accommodate more staff and equipment to serve the more than 13,000 residents of Quardu Bondi District, the release stated.

The facility – now upgraded from a clinic to a health center – was constructed with input and support from national and county health officials, and direct contributions from the community in the form of sand, gravel, water, and human resources.

During the presentation ceremony, Ambassador Malac complimented county and local officials and members of the community for working to improve health care as well as combat Ebola.

Among those present at the handover January 22 were Lofa County Superintendent George S. Dunor, local officials, and community members.
