Gorgbor Chief Appeals For Social Services
By Richard Baysah, Margibi County Correspondent

KAKATA, March 2 (LINA) - The Town Chief of Gorgbor Town in Denita Clan, Borlorla Township is appealing to authorities of Margibi County to construct a school, hand pumps and clinic for his people.

Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency Saturday, Town Chief Sackie Moses said since central government started giving county development funds, his town has not benefitted from the fund.


Mr. Moses indicated that due to the lack of these facilities for the area, life was difficult for the people, especially children of school-going age.


He said the only school in the area is owned and operated by the Salala Rubber Corporation, noting that only children whose parents work for the company are enrolled in it.


He lamented that even with that, these children will have to walk about one and a half hours to get to school, saying in most instances they arrive late for classes.


The town chief revealed that Gorgbor town and other surrounding villages have over 300 children who are not in school, something he said needed to be addressed urgently.

He also said pregnant women are the most vulnerable because when they are in labor pain, family members have to tote them in hammocks; several miles to the nearby health facility in Worhn, Gibi District or the C.H. Rennie Memorial Hospital in Kakata.

He said in the process of transporting the pregnant to these health facilities, they sometimes lose their lives.
