USA-Based Group Pledges Support To Health System
By Richard D. Baysah, LINA Margibi County Correspondent

KAKATA, June 7 (LINA) –The Liberia Medical Association (LMA) branch of the United States of America (LMA-USA) has pledged its continuous support to the healthcare delivery system to buttress government’s efforts in catering to the needs of Liberians.

The LMA recounted several medical supplies it donated to various medical institutions during the height of the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in Liberia.

The focal person of LMA in Liberia and Country Representative of John Snow, Inc., Dr. Rose Jallah-McCauley, made the statement on behalf of the LMA during the presentation of some assorted medical supplies to the Charles Henry Rennie Memorial Hospital in Kakata, Margibi County Tuesday.

Making the donation, Jallah- McCauley said LMA and its many partners are contemplating giving more technical support to the health sector of Liberia in the future.

Jallah-McCauley said all of the Liberian doctors are graduates of the A. M. Doglioti Medical College of the University of Liberia who are providing professional services in the United States, but with deeper concentration on contributing to the growth and development of their country.

Receiving the items, C.H. Rennie Medical Director, Dr. Kumblyte Johnson, thanked the USA-based LMA for the “timely donation to the hospital.”

Johnson indicated that the gesture was a clear manifestation of their concern for and appreciation of their country and compatriots.

He hoped that other Liberian professionals around the world would emulate the LMA-USA example to bring speedy growth and development to their country.

Also speaking, the acting Health Officer at the hospital, Dr. Adolphus T. Yeaih, recounted the numerous difficulties the Margibi County Health Team encountered during the outbreak of the deadly Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in Liberia.

Yeiah pointed out that the Margibi Health Team lost several of its nurses and professionals, causing a gap in the number of trained personnel in the county.

He further stated that as a result of the huge number of persons that got affected and died, the hospital was abandoned and the public shied away from seeking medical treatment at the C. H. Rennie Memorial Hospital until its full restoration.
