The Fullah Progressive Union Georgia USA Branch has donated medical supplies for the use of Bo Government Hospital at an impressive ceremony held this week by relevant stake holders within the South- Eastern Regions.
The medical supply including drugs and equipment were donated to the Bo Government Hospital to alleviate the difficulties faced by the hospital in providing health care delivery for residents in the area.
In a statement read at the ceremony by Tayyib Bah the Georgia USA Based President of the Fullah Progressive Union Abubakarr Bah said the organization is a non political organization with an objective of providing humanitarian services to the people.
He said that the Union has since embarked on various community development projects by providing rice and used clothing since the inception of the Union in 2002.
He also said that the 40th ft container is part of their contribution to the improvement of the heath sector and for bigger plans to make similar donation to other hospitals across the country that are in acute need of help.
He in turn made mention of harsh press releases from USA and concerned residents in Sierra Leone over the way the Government acted to release the container which has put a dent on their sponsors in USA for future donations.
Key note Speaker Mayor Bo Town Council Dr. Wusu Sannoh expressed gratitude to the Fullah Progressive Union for their timely donation to the hospital and encouraged others to emulate the gesture. He also used the occasion to talk about the rehabilitation of the Bo Slaughter House which is currently in progress.
The SLPP Member of Parliament and chairman of the health committee Hon. Eric Jumu expressed shock and dismay over the long delay handing over the donation and the obstacles involved lamenting that the Kono consignment is yet to reach the hospital.
Earlier after various statements in praise of the Fullah Union by both Doctors Steven and Koroma at the Bo Government they both promised to utilize the items for their intended purposes and promised a report to the union about any progress made.
Mathew Mannah Magao Chairman of the Bo District Council and a host of stakeholders heaped praises on the Union for their donation and all those who contributed for the medical supply to reach the people. Councilor Wurie Bah chaired the ceremony.
