Serene Mobile Free Medical, a local group distributes medical supplies to 500 residents in Clay Ashland and Jartu Town communities in District #17, Montserrado County.
One of the beneficiary residents from Jartu Town community, Lorpu Peters, thanks Serene Mobile for the gesture, noting that drugs donated would serve her family for a long time, since she doesn’t have money to take them to the only government referral Redemption Hospital in the district.
Residents of District#17 say their lawmakers have neglected them, waiting for another electoral period to return, seeking their votes.”We are sick and dying here; now we can’t see any politician or even our Lawmaker Hanson Kiazolu.”
Another resident, Seede B. Davies expresses delight that Serene Medical came to their aid, recounting that since the formation of the town, they had never benefited any medical facility.Doctor Elton Fayiah Gbollie is one of few doctors, who provided the free medical service. The medical team diagnosed and treated several illnesses, including hypertension and eyes infection, amongst others.
“Some of the cases we treated were very critical, as you’re aware we do referral when we can’t treat cases that are severe”, Doctor Gbollie explains.He describes the outreach in Jartu Town, Clay Ashland as successful, because many residents benefited.
