At least 45 police officers at the LNP headquarters in Monrovia last week Saturday benefited from free medical services provided by a team of Chinese doctors in response to a request from the Liberia National Police.
Various categories of treatment provided included ophthalmology, OB/GYN, blood pressure monitoring, EKG for heart patients and malaria medication.
Other treatments were provided for cataract, glaucoma, and conjunctivitis, refractive errors in the eye, hypertension and diabetes, all conducted free of charge.
On Thursday, July 21st, the Chinese doctors received an award from Vice President Joseph N. Boakai at the Monrovia City Hall during the Golden Image Award program.
“We want to say thank you to the Liberian people for the recognition of our hard work and devotion,” a representative of the team said, after receiving the award.
He added “We try to live up to people’s expectations and make every effort for Liberian health care system and the friendship between China and Liberia.”
The medical outreach services by the Chinese medical team constitute a major part of the campaign launched by the Chinese community to enhance the bond of friendship with the Liberian people.
