Monrovia, April 5, 2024: Residents of Yorwee, a community in Bong County, Liberia, are calling for the immediate reopening of the Yorwee Clinic. The clinic was closed in early 2023 due to severe shortages of essential drugs and staff. 

The clinic was opened in 2021 and served as a crucial healthcare facility for the community, providing vital medical services to residents in the region.

The closure of the Yorwee Clinic has left the town’s residents without access to essential healthcare services, forcing them to travel long distances for medical treatment. 

This lack of accessible healthcare has raised concerns among community members, who are now urging the authorities to take swift action to reopen the clinic and ensure they have access to quality medical care.

Mr. James Kollie, a resident of Yorwee, expressed his frustration with the closure of the clinic.

“The clinic’s closure has had a significant impact on our community. Many people struggle to access basic healthcare services, especially women and children. We urgently need the clinic to be reopened so that we can receive the care we deserve,” he lamented.

Another resident, Mrs. Lorpu Foloquah, emphasized the importance of a functioning community healthcare facility.

 “The Yorwee Clinic played a good role in ensuring the health and well-being of our community members. Its closure has left us vulnerable and without proper medical care,” she said. 

“We are calling on the authorities to prioritize reopening the clinic and address the critical shortages of drugs and staff,” Mrs. Foloquah continued.

Local community leaders have also joined the residents in plea to reopen the Yorwee Clinic. Chief Johnson Mulbah stated, “The health and safety of our people should be a top priority. We cannot wait any longer for the clinic to reopen.”

He noted that “the government and health authorities must take immediate action to address the challenges facing the clinic and ensure that our community has access to essential healthcare services.”

The residents of Yorwee are hopeful that their calls for the clinic’s reopening will be heard and that measures will be taken to address the underlying issues that led to its closure. 

Access to quality healthcare is essential for the well-being of the community, and the residents are determined to see the clinic restored to full operation so that they can meet their healthcare needs.
