At least 100 citizens and residents of Grand Kru County last week benefited from a five day free surgical intervention fully financed by Golden Veroleum Liberia (GVL).
The surgical intervention which is part of GVL’s corporate social responsibility to areas of operation, took place in Grandcess, Grand Kru from February 25 – March 1, 2013. The Oil Palm Company endeavored into the humanitarian initiative through a partnership with Liberia Surgical Outreach Program, otherwise known as LISOP.
GVL, LISOP collaboration targets people living with hydroceles, goiters, uterus, and fibroids. Ten (10) professional surgeons worked closely with GVL staff and local health authorities to successfully implement this program.
The five days live saving surgical intervention which ended last Friday includes pre and post surgical treatment, feeding of patients and transportation of targeted beneficiaries to and from their respective villages and towns.
The GVL, LISOP medical mission will shortly reach citizens and residents of Sinoe County and its environs-where hundreds shall receive sanity again. It can be recalled; in April 2012, LISOP and GVL reached out to several locals in Grand Kru via the same medium.
GVL is an oil palm production Company currently operating in five of Liberia’s Southeastern counties. With a 1.6 billion United States dollars concession agreement with the Government of Liberia (GOL), the company began operation in Wakefield Butaw, Sinoe and later spread to Grand Kru.
With a plan to commence full operations in Maryland and Rivercess soon, GVL intends to improve the lives of the locals and transformed the entire economy via oil palm production-an industry that put Indonesia “on top of the ladder of better economy” (Liberian must be supportive).
LISOP, a local None-Governmental Organization (NGO) was established in 2000 by a group of professional health workers including surgeons, anesthetics and nurses for the purpose of providing free surgical services to rural dwellers who cannot afford to foot the bills for such a medical service.
Since 2000, LISOP has positively impacted the lives of over 3,000 rural dwellers through its surgical intervention. The medical group solicits partnership with corporate institutions and philanthropic organizations to quench its humanitarian thirst across Liberia’s 15political subdivisions.
