Government Breaks Ground To Rebuild Jorwah Hospital
By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, October 19 (LINA) -The Government of Liberia kicked off the re-construction of the Jorwah Hospital in  Panta District, Bong County.

The Jorwah Hospital was built by the late President William Richard Tolbert in the 1970s but was destroyed during the civil war.

The facility, estimated at US$75,000, will be re-constructed by the Liberia Agency for Community Empowerment (LACE) with funding from the Government’s Legislative allotment in the National Budget. It is expected to be completed in four months.

Performing the ground breaking ceremony on behalf of the Government at the weekend were Bong County Senator Jewel Taylor and Bong County District #4 Representative Lester Paye, while LACE Executive Director Julius Sele performed the ceremony for the agency.

Speaking at the ceremony in Jorwah, Sele challenged residents of the district to take ownership of the project by supporting the contractor with the necessary materials to fast-track the work.

Sele said LACE has instructed its local contractor, the FAH Construction Company to employ 70 percent of the workforce from the area and also admonished the residents to monitor the project to ensure its timely completion.

In remarks at the ceremony, Senator Taylor described the start of the project as a dream come true, and assured the citizens that all will be done to raise additional funding in the budget to rehabilitate other components of the hospital.

Also in remarks at the ceremony, Representative Paye lauded the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning for making the funds available for the commencement of the project.
