A group of Bassa citizens residing in the United States of America under the banner, “Union Of Bassa Citizens Of America” (UNIBOA) has donated a consignment of medical supplies to several hospitals and clinics in the country.
The medical supplies that include equipment brought in by UNIBOA are intended to ease the health needs of Liberians following the deadly Ebola crisis that devastated every fabric of the society.
The supplies according to Mr. Michael C.G. George Chairman for Home Affairs of UNIBOA valued at US$30,000.00.
Mr. George disclosed that the medical supplies and other office materials arrived in the country on September 18, 2015 and that targeted hospitals and clinics have begun picking up their portions of the health equipment and medical supplies from the Lutheran Compound in Sinkor, Monrovia.
Hospitals and clinics that are expected to benefit from the Bassonians’ gesture include, the Redemption Hospital in Monrovia, Curran Hospital in Zorzor, Lofa County, the C.H. Rennie Hospital in Kakata, Margibi County, the Government Hospital in Buchanan City, Grand Bassa County, and the St. Francis Hospital in Rivercess County.
Mr. George also disclosed that besides the medical supplies, the US-based Bassonians have been involved in other projects back home as a means of contributing their quotas to the growth and development of their country.
George said the supplies came in the name of the Curran Hospital in Zorzor District, Lofa County. The Union of Bassa Citizens of America is headed by former Mighty Barrolle and Lone Star goalie, Zeogar Wilson.
INIBOA sent in 575 pieces of various kinds of medical equipment and supplies for use by five hospitals and clinics.
