Twenty persons (20) benefited from the initiative with more than five cases of people living with hearing complications identified. The beneficiaries include early people, youth, and children.

Speaking to reporters during the exercise, Bishop Kortu K. Brown, head of Church Aid Incorporated, lauded the people of Dewein District, Bomi County for welcoming the team to the area.

Bishop Brown named hearing kits as some of the challenges confronting the team as it provides free health services.

According to him, his team went to the district to conduct tests on people with hearing problems but said it seems that many people are affected.

Two of the beneficiaries, Kamie Johnson and Musu Kenneh, expressed joy and appreciation to Church Aid Incorporated for restoring their hearing capacity after going through the medical clean-up exercise.

“I often hear sound in my ear daily something, which made me give out some personal belongings, including phones because I usually find it difficult to hear people speaking to me”, seventy-year-old Kamie Johnson said.

Meanwhile, to promote hearing healthcare in Liberia, Vhuch Aid Incorporated has sent four additional Nurses from government-run hospitals in four counties to undergo specialized training in Hearing Healthcare in Zambia.

Those nurses are Blessing Acquire, of the Government Hospital in Grand Bassa County, Georgia A. Gray from Redemption Hospital in Montserrado County, Naomi Smith, from the C.B. Dunbah Hospital in Bong County, and Vanja Mama Kowula, from C. H. Rennie Hospital in Margibi County.

Church Aid Incorporated in collaboration with local and international partners had already trained four nurses in Hearing Healthcare. Beneficiaries of the first training include P. Magdalene Konneh, of the John F. Kennedy Medical Center in Montserrado County; Hannah H. Newah, nurse from the Government Hospital in Tubmanburg, Bomi County; Mr. D. Iben Porkpah, and Mr. Moses Biman Jr, both from Curran Lutheran Hospital in Lofa County. 

Dewein District Commissioner Anthony Healeo thanked Church Aid Incorporated for its efforts in making his people to hear again and called other non-governmental institutions to reach out to people in the counties with health services.

Commissioner Healeo lamented that challenges confronting the people of Dewein District are countless because the district is without quality education and health delivery system due to lack of qualified teachers and nurses. Editing by Jonathan Browne
