Foya-Borma, Other Hospitals Receive Medical Supplies

Foya-Borma Hospital Gets Supplies

Foya Borma Hospital, situated in Foya Statutory District, Lofa County, last week received a 40-ft container of medical supplies from the Friends of Foya Borma Hospital based in the USA.

The Foya Borma Hospital is the medical facility where the first Ebola virus disease in Liberia was diagnosed positive and was also the first epicenter of the deadly virus.

Prior to the outbreak of the Ebola virus in Liberia, the hospital’s Friends in the State of Indiana donated two large boxes and a barrel of supplies.

Speaking during the presentation ceremony of the container to staff and board of directors of Pentecostal Mission Union (PMU-Liberia) in Paynesville, Chairman Mathias Fallah Korpu extended thanks and appreciation to donors of the medical supplies.

The PMU-Liberia’s board chairman pointed out that friends and relatives that look after their kinsmen and women during any crisis are friends indeed.

Chairman Korpu also noted that the Friends of Foya Borma Hospital in the USA and elsewhere are indeed great partners in the continuous fight to eradicate the deadly Ebola virus from Liberia and Africa.


Showing Gratitude

It is indeed welcome news to the outside world that the Ebola Virus Disease which devastated Liberia, bringing her to her knees, is now virtually wiped out of the country with the last confirmed patient’s death more than three weeks ago.

As Liberians retrospect on last year, many are expressing thanks to local health authorities and caregivers, and especially the international community, including medical organizations and individuals, who came to Liberia’s defense to help defeat the deadly virus.

Several institutions highly grateful for the level of support received from their international partners are health care facilities in Lofa County, specifically the Foya-Borma Hospital, which, during the heat of the crisis, benefited from a donation of a 40-foot container of Ebola specific logistics relief supplies and medical equipment from three US-based organizations.

The Container Project was an initiative of the Friends of Foya-Borma Hospital (FOFBH) of Indiana, in collaboration with the Association of Citizens and Friends of Liberia (ACFLi) of Sacramento, California and the Liberian Association of Northern California (LANC). The relief supplies and medical equipment were valued at US$200,000.
