LBDI, Phebe Hospital Partner To Purchase Generator
By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, January 18 (LINA) - The Liberia Bank for Development and Investment (LBDI) in collaboration with the administration of Phebe Hospital in Bong County has purchased a brand new 350 KVA generator for the hospital.

The US$75,000 generator was presented to the hospital administration recently on the hospital’s compound.

Under the partnership, LBDI paid US$45,000, while Phebe Hospital will pay US$35,000 for the generator.

The bank’s president, John Davies, said the generator is one of few social corporate responsibility interventions the bank made in different sectors in Liberia as part of its 50th anniversary celebration as a financial institution.

He said LBDI for the first time sponsored the National County Meet, the Meet the Challenge Quizzing Competition for high schools and Spelling Bee Competition for elementary schools in Liberia.

Mr. Davies said the bank has also constructed and equipped a computer lab at the Business College of the University of Liberia for use by students of that college.

He noted that at present, the bank is working on providing a document management system to help reserve patients’ information.

The management of LBDI has, meanwhile, promised to pay maintenance cost
for the machine for one year.

For his part, Phebe Medical Director, Dr. Jefferson Sibley, commended LBDI for the financial support towards the procurement of the generator.

LBDI had earlier donated a 250KVA Generator to Phebe Hospital but that
machine could not produce the electricity needed to effectively run the hospital, according to Dr. Sibley.

He said the hospital administration then wrote LBDI appealing for a 350KVA generator with a pledge that Phebe would take care of the additional cost.
