Liberia: NASSCORP Plans to Build Medical Diagnostic Center

The Director-General of the National Social Security and Welfare Corporation (NASSCORP), Dewitt Von-Ballmoos, has disclosed that the entity is planning to build a Medical Diagnostic Center in Liberia to provide services to the Liberian people.

Mr. Von-Ballmoos indicated that this is consistent with the corporation's investment objectives as prescribed in the Act establishing NASSCORP.

He observed that having such a facility would prevent Liberians from traveling to foreign countries to diagnose diseases or afflictions that are common in Liberia.

Director Von-Ballmoos made the disclosure Friday at the dedication ceremony of NASSCORP-House at the ELWA Junction in Paynesville outside Monrovia.

Meanwhile, according to Mr. Von-Ballmoos, plans are also underway to construct a new headquarters for NASSCORP on one of its properties in the city of Monrovia.

He further revealed that NASSCORP-House is one of the corporation's many commercial properties, with others in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County, Voinjama, Lofa County and Kakata, Margibi County, noting that all were acquired and built in 2007.

He said funding for these projects was raised exclusively through the contributions of the workforce of Liberia.
