4 nurses benefit from training in Zambia 

By Naneka A. Hoffman 

Four Liberian nurses have returned to the country following their participation in a 10-month training in Zambia on healthcare for ear and hearing diseases.

Speaking in an interview with journalists shortly after a thanksgiving service organized by the Water in the Desert Apostolic Pentecostal Church International for their safe arrival home over the weekend in Brewerville, outside Monrovia, the head of the four nurses, Madeline Konneh, lauded Church Aid Incorporated for the opportunity afforded them.

She also thanked Bishop Kortu K. Brown, Overseer of the Water in the Desert Apostolic Pentecostal Church International, and the entire membership of the church for the opportunity and their prayers while they were away.

Madam Konneh noted that the training obtained from the Starkey Hearing Institute in Zambia is very important because healthcare services are not in Liberia.

She appealed to the Government of Liberia and well-meaning citizens to establish Ear and Hearing Healthcare Department at hospitals across the country so that people living with such conditions will receive treatment.

She emphasized that the establishment of such department will help to fully cater to people with such health problem.

For his part, Bishop Kortu K. Brown thanked God for the safe arrival of the four nurses.

Bishop Brown disclosed that plan is underway to hold discussions with government and international partners on the need to provide such services to the public.

He said it is important for people living with hearing complications to receive medication.

Beneficiaries of the program include Madeline Konneh, a nurse from the John F. Kennedy Medical Center in Montserrado County; Hannah Neawah of the government hospital in Tubmanburg, Bomi County; Mr. Abel Fokpa, and Mr. Moses Bimman, both from Curran Lutheran Hospital in Lofa County, respectively.

The nurses were sent to Zambia by Church Aid Incorporated, the relief arm of the Apostolic Pentecostal Church International early this year. Editing by Jonathan Browne
