The C. H. Rennie Hospital hospital nurses received the total of 65 bags of 25 Kg rice.
Reading a prepared text from the Diaspora Network was Atty. Sherate F. Henries who said the group of Liberians saw the need to identify with those they referred to as ‘first responders’ on the frontlines in the fight against COVID-19 and other illnesses in rural Liberia.
Atty. Henries added in his reading that medical professionals are often challenged by the stress of the work they do.
Additionally, they said the donation may not be considered as substantial, it is a little token depicting their willingness to collaborate with healthcare providers in the fight against the killer virus.
