Sight Savers Donates Two Jeeps To Health Ministry

By Robert Dixon

MONROVIA, May 1 (LINA) - The medical charity Sight Savers on Monday donated two jeeps valued atUS$34,000 each to the Ministry of Health in Monrovia.

Sight Savers is an international non-governmental organization involved in helping blind people receive their sight and preventing people from going blind as well as improving the lives of people with disabilities, particularly those who have permanent sight problem.

Presenting the jeeps to the ministry, Sight Savers Liberia Country Director Adoley Sonii, who was accompanied by the organization’s Regional Director for the West Africa, Bakary Marong, said that her organization was placed to fight crippling diseases that affect the human race.

She hoped that the jeeps will be used for the intended purpose.

Receiving the keys, the Chief Medical Officer of Liberia, Dr. Francis Kateh, lauded Sight Savers for the donation and assured that the vehicles would be used for the intended purpose.

He said although the Ministry may not have sufficient resource to combat all of the diseases in the country, with the close collaboration of partners like Sight Savers, it will be easy to meet the health needs of the people.

Dr. Kateh, who is the Deputy Health Minister, called on other institutions to emulate the example of Sight Savers for the betterment of the people of Liberia
