Cross Cultural Care (C3), A USA-based Nonprofit International Non-Government Organization Registered in Liberia has provided 70 bundles of zinc for the reroofing of the St. Timothy Government Hospital in Grand Cape Mount County.
St. Timothy is the only referred hospital in Grand Cape Mount that provides health care services for over 135,000 local residents.
The hospital has a little over 40 inpatient beds, one operating room, and is supported by two Liberian physicians, three PAs, and two midwives along with nurses and support staff.
Harris T. Karneh, Country Representative of C3 said the donation for the renovation of the hospital came as a result of a communication sent to the organization by the administration of the hospital, asking for the renovation of the facility due to its dilapidated condition.
Mr. Karneh put the cause of the project at US$25,000 and said the organization remains committed to working with the hospital, and the country’s health system.
Additionally, he disclosed that they have brought on board volunteer doctors from America, provide scholarships for healthcare workers, and also work with the education sector.
“C3 works closely with both Ministries of Health and Education, as we have provided scholarships for over 20 active scholars studying to become secondary school teachers, nurses, midwives, physician assistants, lab techs and have at the same time pay the full tuition of each scholar’s education upon being accepted through a competitive screening,” Mr. Karneh said.
In both separate remarks, the Medical Director and Administrator of the St. Timothy Hospital lauded the organization for their support towards the health care facility.
