An Austrian-Ghanaian based Mineral group, Iron Resources Liberia Limited, has paid tribute to Liberian health workers who are currently involved with the ongoing fight against the deadly Ebola virus.
Iron Resources, which has its operational site in the Gbi Forest, Tappita, Nimba County, is currently exploring iron ore in that part of the country with about 25 Liberians in its employ.
Speaking when the company donated several items to the ELWA Ebola Treatment Center recently, a representative of the company in Liberia, Mack S. Kennedy, Jr. praised workers for their courage since the outbreak of the killer disease.
Mr. Kennedy prayed for God’s blessing upon the health workers in the country as they continue the war against the virus.
Some of the items donated to ELWA Treatment Center include 100 pieces of mattresses, 5,000 protective gears, 6,000 sanitary pads and 50 cartons of juices, among others.
Mr. Kennedy disclosed that as part of efforts to ensure compliance of preventive measures against Ebola, Iron Resources also donated 500 buckets and 500 large bottles of chloride to its operation site where there has not been any outbreak of the virus. He puts the cost of the entire donation both in Monrovia and Tappita to over US$20,000.
Receiving the items on behalf of the Doctor in charge at the ELWA Treatment Center, Dr. Jerry Brown, Logistics Manager of the Hospital Jackson Kai thanked the Mineral group for the donation, and assured the items will be used for the intended purpose. Also in Tappita, some local officials including the statutory superintendent of Tappita, Wiah Tugbe, City Mayor Sara Menduodor and the Commissioner of Gbi and Duro, David Toe extolled Iron Resources for the items and promised to continue the promotion of preventive measures against Ebola in the mining site of the company.
