GoL Dedicates US$200k Clinic In Beletanda
By Ballah M. Kollie, LINA

MONROVIA, June 6 (LINA) –The Ministry of Health has dedicated a 20-bedroom health facility valued at over US$200,000 in Beletanda, Bong County.

The facility will provide services to over 10,000 persons from Sanoyea and Beletanda, as well as towns and villages across the Saint Paul River in Gbarpolu and parts of Lofa County.

The project was initiated by former Bong County Senator Richard K. Flomo, who provided the land and began construction work in mid-1990 but later turned it over to the Bong County Health Team (BCHT) through the office of Bong County Senator Jewel Howard Taylor, who sought budgetary support for its completion.

In remarks at the dedicatory ceremony, Bong County Health Officer Dr. G. Gorbee Logan, who described the facility as a Primary Health Center, urged citizens to take ownership of the new facility, as doing so will sustain and maintain it.

He observed that government cannot do all for its citizens, adding that citizens must assist government in the process.

Dr. Logan than lauded the effort of Senator Taylor in having the center completed as well as Deputy Information Minister Andrew Tehmeh who donated several items for use at the facility.

In remarks, Senator Taylor described the dedication of the Beletanda facility as a dream come true, and lauded former Senator Flomo for initiating a “lifesaving program in that part of the county.”

Meanwhile, Senator Taylor is calling for more attention to Walapolu Chiefdom and Degie Town, describing them as the two most challenging and destitute parts of the county.

She said since the creation of these settlements in the county, it was only on Saturday, June 4, that Walapolu got a health center, while Degie remains without a school and health facility.
