VP Boakai Urges Diaspora Liberians To Get Involved In Their Country’s Development; Dedicates Community Clinic Equipped By Liberians In Arizona And  Project CURE

MONROVIA, October 7 (LINA)-Vice President Joseph N. Boakai has called on Liberians in the diasporas to get more involved in the development of their country through projects that make positive impact on the lives of the people.

Vice President Boakai said through meaningful projects, conditions back home could be improved, and warned Liberians against pulling each other down.

Vice President Boakai made the call Tuesday in Sewu, Grand Cape Mount County when he formally opened the doors to a forty-room Community Hospital in Sewu, Grand Cape Mount County outfitted and equipped by Liberians in the State of Arizona and project C.U.R.E. The clinic built in 2013 has not been used due to lack of equipment and supplies.

The equipment and supplies which include an assortment of hospital beds, mattresses, medical equipment, hospital supplies and personal protective gear worth over five hundred thousand United States dollars, were made available by Liberians in Phoenix, Arizona and the international NGO Project CURE upon the request of Vice President  Boakai.

In a letter turning over the donation to Vice President Boakai, the President of the Liberian Association of Arizona, Dr. Robert Sherman and the Chairman of the Coalition to Combat Ebola in Liberia, Mel Hannah, challenged Vice President Boakai to ensure that the supplies are delivered to hospitals and clinics throughout Liberia with a focus on rural communities most in need.

Vice President Boakai praised Dr. Robert Sherman, Mel Hannah, the Executive Director of Project CURE, Katie Mabardy and friends and Liberians in Arizona for responding to the call.

He then called on Liberians outside of the country to emulate the example of their compatriots.

Vice President Boakai used the occasion to praise health workers who have remained faithful to their oath of selfless sacrifice and professionalism in the course of their work.

He said doctors, nurses and community health workers are often the unsung heroes of the nation who work tirelessly to ensure a healthy society.
