Liberia’s strong and nurtured diplomatic tie with many countries around the world is yielding fruits, especially in the Ebola crisis.
One of the latest countries to come in with aid to combat the Ebola virus is the Middle Eastern Islamic state of Kuwait, from where a consignment of medical equipment and accessories has arrived help fight the Ebola virus.
According to a dispatch from the Liberian Embassy near Kuwait City, the consignment of medical equipment and supplies is valued at more than US$45,000.
The dispatch said 470 boxes of medical items include Non-Woven Surgical face mask-ear loops, disposable N 95 face masks, non woven surgical face mask-ties, medical gloves, alcohol swab pads among others. The items are expected to help reinforce government’s delivery of treatment and prevention services in health centers around the country.
Liberia’s Ambassador to the State of Kuwait, H.E. Konah Blackett, negotiated and procured the items from Dr. Sanad Rasheed Al-Fadala, chairman and CEO of Taiba Hospital &IMS last month and conferred with Dr. Nabel Abdul Rahem,a Kuwaiti engineer consultant, who handled the shipment.
The Liberian Embassy expressed gratitude to Dr. Sanad Rashed Al-Fadala and Dr. Nabeel Abdul Raheem for their humanitarian gesture to Liberia during the Ebola crisis.
