Cuttington University has recommitted itself to buttressing government’s efforts in eradicating the deadly Ebola Virus Disease from the country. The university, headed by Dr. Henrique Flomo Tokpa, has provided several gallons of gasoline to the County Health Team, as well as Thermo flashes to the Phebe Hospital and Agape Clinic. It is also contributing volunteers to the Bong Ebola task force.
Speaking in an interview with our Bong County correspondent Thursday, Cuttington University Director of Public Relations Prince Valentine Simpson said the institution was also providing accommodation for staff of the International Medical Corps- the NGO running the Ebola Treatment center in Suakoko District.
Mr. Simpson further disclosed that the university was concluding negotiations with the United States Department of Defense to have one of its Ebola testing laboratories in the College of Allied Health Sciences.
According to him, Cuttington University continues to enjoy the confidence of local and international partners due to the farsightedness of its President, who continues to work hard for the country.
