BUCHANAN, April 18 (LINA) –The County leadership has donated a bus each to the Grand Bassa Community College (GBCC) and the Liberian Government Hospital in Buchanan to help address the transportation problem facing the two institutions.

The buses were purchased by the Project Management Committee (PMC) from a local dealer at a cost of US$130,000 with money drawn from the county and social development funds.

The buses were presented to the two institutions by Grand Bassa County Superintendent J. Levi Demah and County Legislative Caucus chairperson Senator Nyonblee Karngar Lawrence at the administration building in Buchanan during the weekend.

In remarks at the ceremony, Superintendent Demah said the donation was in fulfillment of a promise made by the county to help strengthen the education and health systems of Grand Bassa County.

Also in remarks, Senator Lawrence said the presentation of the buses is a result of the collaborative efforts of both the Legislative Caucus and the County Administration.

She added that the county targeted health and education because of their importance in the attainment of development, stressing, "When the people are educated and well, development becomes their major priority."

For his part, the Medical Director of the Liberian Government Hospital in Buchanan, Dr. Willie F.Benson, described the gesture as “a new day” for workers at the hospital.

He described the gesture as a demonstration as "real love" for the county, assuring that the hospital will be responsible for the maintenance and fuelling of the bus.

"As you have encouraged us, we will encourage you by doing our best to provide quality healthcare services at the hospital," Dr. Benson asserted.

Recently the county leadership presented a consignment of laboratory equipment to the Community College worth over US$9,000 for use by the college’s health science department.
