The Liberian Government Hospital in Tubmanburg, Bomi County has received a donation of medical equipment worth over US$60,000.00.
Mr. Ben Weaver, a Liberian residing in the United States, made the donation through the office of the Bomi County’s Junior Senator, Richard Devine.
The medical equipment donated include: Diagnostic Microscope, Blood Pressure Machine, assorted laboratory equipment, surgical gowns among others.
Presenting the equipment, Mr. Weaver said his gesture followed many requests made to him by Senator Devine during his visit to the United States.
He said the Bomi Lawmaker had reported that the Hospital lacks these items. “The Bomi Junior Senator had been instrumental when it comes to the health status of the county,” he said.
Mr. Weaver has promised to donate more medical equipment to the hospital as well as support the hospital in the area of resource development.
In a brief remark, Senator Devine said he was interested in the health and education needs of the people. He commended Mr. Weaver for the gesture.
Receiving the equipment, Bomi County Chief Health Officer, Rhoda Peters, thanked Senator Devine and Mr. Weaver for the donation. She assured them that the items donated will be used for the intended purpose.
The Chief Health Officer then called on the government and others to emulate the good example of Mr. Weaver and Senator Devine.
