Mrs. Branel Grupee, wife of Nimba County Senator Thomas Grupee, over the weekend visited two administrative districts in Nimba County and donated two suitcases that contained baby diapers, blankets, towels, and eight mattresses at the Beo Yoolah Clinic in District 4. She also presented L$10,000 to the staff to augment their financial strength, James Matadi of Karn Voice of Peace community radio has reported.
The Beo Yoolah facility is located near Gborplay, a Liberian town which is just a stone’s throw from the Liberia-Ivory Coast border.
Other materials Mrs. Grupee donated included two electronic blood pressure monitors, six cartons of baby powder, skin ointment, and several bags that contained assorted items for baby-mothers.
According to Journalist Matadi, while making the presentation at the Beo Yoolah health facility, Mrs. Grupee spoke of how the donated items came as a result of her husband Senator Thomas Grupee’s request to her after he visited the Beo Yoorlah facility.
She called on the clinic’s staff to use the materials for their intended purposes, especially for baby-mothers and other pregnant women who are regularly visiting the heath facility.
Korlu Elijah, Acting Officer-in-Charge of the clinic and who also received the items, extended thanks and appreciation to Sen. Grupee and his wife Branel for their kind gesture. Elijah promised to use the materials for their intended goal.
In a related development, Mrs. Grupee made a similar gesture when she made a stopover in Wea Beeplay and Beadatuo towns in Buuyao Administrative District, distributing over 200 book-bags, copy books and pencils to students attending the two community schools.
She also presented L$20,000 to the administrations of the schools as part of assistance to encourage members of the staff to continue their good services to the education sector in that part of the County.
