Liberia to benefit from Free Surgical Treatment, Medical Supplies
The Liberia Medical Mission Team of Medical Doctors from USA and Canada is in country to provide free surgical treatment for person suffering from Cataracts and other health complications.
Established in 2015, Liberia Medical Mission is a team of professionals based around the world, supporting Liberia and West African countries with medical supplies, education, and as well as giving aid.
The team was formed to provide medical humanitarian assistance to person suffering from sicknesses that can be treated.
While in the country, the team of medical doctors will provide medication, equipment and supplies for two weeks. The medical equipment and supplies, which are valued at US$4M, are expected to be administered at the 14 Military Hospital, Redemption, United Methodist Hospital in Ganta and Clinics across the country.
Speaking at a media engagement program in Congo Town, outside Monrovia on Sunday, February 26, 2023, Team Lead Joseph Sackor called for more support and urged Liberians home and abroad to always give back to humanity void of political interest.
“The Liberia Medical Team is a team of Liberian medical professionals residing in the United States of America and Canada and we are here to help our people. This is a voluntary and humanitarian mission void of politics,” said Mr. Sackor.
“I think Liberians who have similar opportunity should also help their country in different ways they can. We have been visiting here and for each time we come here, we offer some free services to our people as our way of giving back,” he stated.
It could be recalled that the team made its fifth visit to the country in 2020, bringing a forty-foot container full of medical supplies worth about US$2.1 million – ranging from drugs to medical equipment.
The medical practitioner, most of whom first time visiting Liberia, at the time expressed their desire of working with the Liberian citizenries which they described as ‘hospitality’ people.
The health practitioners then provided free health services in mental health, eye surgery, and other health-related issues.
