LRA Donates Fuel To ELWA, Redemption Hospitals

MONROVIA, March 5 (LINA) - The Commissioner General of the Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA)  Elfrieda Tamba has applauded the Redemption and ELWA  Hospitals for their valuable services to the Liberian people.

Making donations of 100 gallons of fuel each to the two hospitals during the week Tamba said the two hospitals have rendered remarkable services to the public and 
needed to be supported to continue their services.

Commissioner Tamba recalled how the two hospitals played pivotal roles in the war against the Ebola virus that claimed nearly 5,000 lives in Liberia, including staff of the two health entities, according to an LRA release.

“We have come today to identify with you by contributing 100 gallons of fuel to help provide electricity while you continue to serve our people,” Tamba stated both at ELWA on Tuesday and Redemption on Thursday.

Administrators of the two hospitals commended Mrs. Tamba and the LRA for 
what they described as the invaluable assistance that will help cover cost of fuel.

Rev. Sam C. Carr, Acting Administrator of the ELWA Hospital said the donation signals that somebody is thinking about the hospital and hoped that others can follow the example of the LRA.

For his part, the Medical Director of the Redemption Hospital Dr. Mohammed Sankoh praised the LRA for its hard work in serving the public and specifically contributing to the work of the hospital.

The presentations are in continuation of the public distribution of fuel coupons to major hospitals and health facilities across the country by the LRA.

The fuel being distributed is part of the 2,000 gallons intercepted and seized late 2015 from Aminata and Sons, Inc. when the company diverted duty free fuel intended for the LWSC to its Kakata Retail Service Station.

So far, the LRA has distributed 1300 gallons of fuel. Other medical 
facilities are to benefit shortly.
