The Project Manager of the Samaritan’s Purse Mr. Gentry Taylor, has disclosed plan to embark on a 100-bedroom hospital project at the ELWA compound in Paynesville, outside Monrovia.
Mr. taylor said the Chief Executive Officer of the Samaritan’s Purse Franklin Graham last year March made the commitment to a new hospital for ELWA, or the Eternal Love Winning Africa, previously operated by Christian missionaries.
Mr. Graham has worked in Liberia for the last eight years, specifically in Foya, Lofa County as well as Gbarpolu and River Gee counties, respectively. He was very instrumental in the renovation of the African Bible College in Yekepa, Nimba County, and currently undergoing major expansion program.
In a release issued in Monrovia, Mr. Taylor added that in fulfilment of the promise, the Samaritan’s Purse has received approval to proceed with the construction, which will have a residency quarter to train Liberian doctors.
He said the process of finagling the architectural designs for the building is on-going and a nine-man delegation comprised of engineers and architects are expected in the country by next month.
Mr. Taylor added the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare in Monrovia has been formally written of the initial development. The Samaritan’s Purse is an International Non-governmental Organization.
