Government has donated an ambulance to the Samuel Barcolleh Memorial Health Center in Margibi County to enhance its healthcare delivery service to people of the county.
The ambulance, presented on behalf of government by the General Services Agency (GSA) recently, is one of several items provided by China AID for distribution among government and private health centers upon request.
Speaking during the presentation ceremony in Kakata, Margibi County, the Director of National Fleet Management at GSA, Jordan Gongar, said the donation of the ambulance was in response to an earlier request made by the health center’s administration to GSA Director-General Mary Broh.
“Nothing can be more meaningful than a government’s intervention in situations that have an overriding and tangible effect on the general wellbeing of its citizenry,” Gongar pointed out.
Gongar noted that government will ensure at all times that its institutions, especially the health sector, are provided the necessary subsidies that will enhance their effort to provide adequate healthcare delivery services to the public.
“Government will remain supportive of every institution that is complementing its effort of providing services to the Liberian people,” he added.
Receiving the ambulance, the Administrator of the Center, Shelton Nuah, thanked government for the donation, noting that the center was in dire need of such service in order to refer many cases beyond its control to other hospitals.
