Citizens of Tappita District in Nimba county under the banner Tappita District Development Association Liberia (TADDA-Liberia) have launched a ONE UNITED STATES DOLLAR CAMPAIGN to save the Jackson F. Doe memorial Hospital hospital in Tappita City Nimba county.
The JFD Memorial Hospital is the second largest referral Hospital in Liberia. Since 2018, the hospital has been going through lots of constraints ranging from the lack of drugs, fuel and others essential medical supplies for its upkeep.
According to the citizens of Tappita, patients including pregnant women and children are being sent home without proper medical attention due to the lack of drugs at the medical facility. Electricity is not stable due to fuel shortage to power the hospital’s generator.
It is from this background that the citizens have decided to undertake this initiative. According to officials of TADDA-Liberia it is sad that the Jackson F. Doe Hospital which is a major landmark structure in the county and the country at large is virtually at the verge of collapsing. Therefore, as citizens of the district they will do everything humanly possible to raise fund to support the hospital.
They are therefore calling on all citizens of Tappita in and out of Liberia, philanthropists and humanitarian organizations to come to their aid in order to save the hospital from collapsing by donating to this worthy cost.
This year’s TADDA-Liberia Convention is expected to kick off on June 8, 2019 in Tappita Nimba county.
