Bong Leaders, Stakeholders To Conclude On Leper Center Tuesday  

By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, August 22 (LINA) - The leadership of Bong County and stakeholders will meet Tuesday, August 25, to make a final determination about the renovation of the Leprosy Rehabilitation Center in Suakoko, Bong County.

The decision stemmed from last Thursday’s meeting in Suakoko during which heads of advocacy groups, representatives of residents at the center, Team Work Africa and the County Health Officer (CHO) deliberated to find an amicable solution to the renovation of the center.

Bong County Assistant Superintendent for Development Anthony Sheriff told the Liberia News Agency recently that all stakeholders provided feedbacks to the county administration that will put the leadership in a better position to take a decision on the center.

Sheriff said it was this juncture the decision was reached for the August 25 meeting which will be attended by Superintendent Selena Polson Mappy to finally decide on the matter.

It can be recalled that Bong CHO Dr. Sampson Azouarkoi in June this year prevented Team Work Africa from renovating the Suakoko Leprosy Rehabilitation Center on grounds that there was no leprosy patient there.

Dr.  Azouarkoi warned that any attempt to renovate the center in the name of helping lepers will deny the Health Ministry legitimate ownership of facility.

But lepers residing at the Center have staged at least two demonstrations to protest the decision of Dr. Azouarkoi, one at his residence and the other at the entrance to the Phebe Hospital.
