Liberia: Mobile Clinic Project Gets U.S.$150,000 Grant From Chevron

The Kingdom Care Medical Center has received US$150,000 grant from Chevron Liberia Limited to boost the institution's capacity as it embarks on a mobile clinic project for rural dwellers in Montserrado and Grand Bassa Counties.

As part of the grant, a brand new Toyota Land Cruiser Jeep was also donated to the medical center.

Speaking Wednesday at the official signing ceremony, Chevron Liberia Limited Country Director Karl Cottrell said his institution gave the grant to ensure that Kingdom Care Medical Center gets the necessary support in order to provide health services to rural dwellers.

He said the support to Kingdom Care Medical Center followed a meeting with its Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Martha Zarway, who expressed desire to reach out to under-privileged people in Liberia through the provision of health services.

Mr. Cottrell said Chevron believes that the mobile project of Kingdom Care would also contribute to the health needs of Liberians.

He said his institution looks forward to further engage Kingdom Care Medical Center in whatever way to touch the lives of the people.

Earlier, Dr. Martha Zarway said it has always been her dream to positively impact the lives of Liberians and residents through the delivery of health services.

She pointed out that there are people in Liberia who find it difficult to get better health care.

Dr. Zarway said the mobile clinic would travel to the rural parts of Montserrado and Grand Bassa Counties to provide medical services to residents in those areas.

He said it was important for people in the rural areas to have access to better health services.

The Kingdom Care Medical Director expressed optimism that the mobile clinic project would impact the health needs of rural dwellers.

She promised to extend the program to other parts of the country in the future.
