Midwife Hails U.S-Based Liberian Donation To Maternal Home
By Philip T.  Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, October 3 (LINA) – A Certified Midwife assigned at the Phebe Hospital Maternal Waiting Home in Suakoko District, Bong County has lauded Prince Michael, a Liberian based in New Jersey, U.S.A for donating to the home.

Michael recently provided US$140 to purchase seven bags of 25 kg rice after he read a Facebook post from journalist Moses Bailey highlighting hunger as a challenge facing the Phebe Maternal Waiting Home and other waiting homes in Bong County.

Receiving the donation at the home Saturday, Viola Makor told the Liberia News Agency that it was the first of its kind for such donation to be made following an interview with journalists.

Meanwhile, Ms. Makor is calling on other citizens to join efforts to support maternity waiting homes across the county.

She said children that are being born at the waiting homes are the future leaders of Liberia and as such, it was important for community residents to help the homes with food and other needed items.

Presenting the rice and cash, journalist Bailey also called for concerted community action in helping maternal waiting homes in the county.

Bailey expressed gratitude to Internews through the Information Saves Lives Project for the training and mentoring he continues to receive in reporting health issues in Bong County.

As part of its healthcare program, Africare, an international non-government organization, has constructed nine maternal waiting homes in Bong County to help pregnant women nearing delivery to stay and give birth to avoid the complications of home delivery.

However, according to the county health team, the lack of food remains a major challenge to the effective running of the homes.
