Following repeated threats to leave Liberia and pledged their allegiance to neighboring Ivory coast due to lack of development in their area, citizens of Gbi-Doru in District #6, NImba County are expected to get a modern health facility.
Making the disclosure, Nimba County Chief Medical Doctor Collins Bowah said the Methodist church in Liberia through the communication services are expected to build a clinic for the citizens that part of the country.
He said the clinic when built, will help to address some of the health needs of the citizens in that part of the county.
He said the proposed clinic is as a result of an engagement by the County Health Team along with the County administration with the Methodist church to undertake the project. For her part, the head of the Communication Department of the Methodist Church in Liberia Madam Emma Okai put the coast of the proposed clinic at one-hundred and fifty thousand United States Dollars.
According to her, the project is a form of assistance from the Methodist church to the government to carry our development in the country. Our Nimba County correspondent is quoted as saying this is the first of its kind for citizens of Gbi-Doru to get health facility since 1847.
According to our correspondent, Gbi Doru is one of the least developed areas in the country. There have been no road networks, schools, and health facilities among others for a long period of time.
