VP MOBILIZES SUPPORT FOR HEALTH CARE DELIVERY MATERIALS AND EQUIPMENT IN PHOENIX, ARIZONA, Helps Load Liberia-Bound Container
Vice President Joseph N. Boakai on Tuesday, October 18, 2016, visited the mammoth warehouse of Project CURE, a philanthropic organization that promotes access to health care by donating medical supplies and equipment to hospitals and other health care facilities. The Liberian Vice President was at the facility to press on with making the case for more donations to struggling health care facilities in Liberia.
At the height of the Ebola crisis in Liberia, Project CURE, in collaboration with the Liberian Association of Arizona (LAA), shipped THREE huge containers, two of which went specifically to the Redemption Hospital. The other was distributed by the VP Boakai to other health centers including the self-help clinic undertaking by the people of the town of Sewu in Grand Cape Mount County. This donation followed VP Boakai’s first visit to Phoenix, Arizona, a few years ago.
During this visit the VP was led on a guided tour of the gigantic storage facility stocked with various types and brands of medical supplies and equipment ready to be packaged and shipped. VP, joined by members of his delegation, ceremonially assisted in the loading of one of the containers that was been readied for shipment to Liberia. He lauded the humanity and generosity of Project CURE and underscored the need for continuity and increment in the Organization’s interest and support.
