The Liberia Medical Mission today served over One Hundred (100) Disabled people free medication at the headquarters of the Group of 77 on Newport street.

The LMM focus of the free medical services among other things is to support humanity including putting Liberia on par with other Countries around the world as far as humanitarian and voluntary services are concerned.

The LMM is a medical institution based in the United States of America that gives assistance to children and persons with disability.
During the medication exercise at the Group of 77 headquarters, the Chairman of the Liberia Medical Mission Joseph Said the dreams of the institution came about in 1992 while in Liberia and his father died due to low medical facilities within the country at the time something that prompted him to establish such organization with the hope of preventing such from happening again in the Country mainly preventable deaths.

The humanitarian group as part of today’s exercise treated several disabled persons and served them free drugs.

The Group of 77 is an institution under the office of the Vice President of Liberia.

The group over the past years complained of abandonment, neglect, lack of support and just to name a few.

Currently some of their members have turned to relative beggar’s just to survive.

Additionally Chairman Sackor added that the LMM will ensure that people with disabilities are being given proper medical attention and that his organization will link the Group of 77 to a lot of resourceful organizations.

In response, the Executive Director of the Group of 77, Wayfa Florence Ciapha expressed her gratitude to the organization for being thoughtful of persons with disabilities, thus taking out time to come and serve them in such a manner.

The medical services she noted is historic and marks the first of its kind in recent years.

Chairman Sackor averred that the organization will work to strength the good thoughts of the Executive Director by bringing other professional partners to help the institution.

Under the pro-poor agenda of the CDC led government everyone is inclusive something the disable group is anticipating will become a reality so that they too can not be left out or abandoned like what past administration did to them.

The group is directly under the supervision of a humanitarian Vice President Jewel Howard Taylor who over the years have a good record of assisting people especially the needy as the group members are hopeful that they will benefit from such good will from the first female Vp of Liberia.
