Liberia: US$500K medical centre under construction in Nimba County

29 January 2018

A comprehensive health centre worth US$500,000 is under construction in Nyor Diaplay Town in Nimba County.

Project manager Shedrick S. Sayegbouh said the health centre will contain over 100 beds, private rooms, an operation theatre and an accommodation complex for the medical staff.

He said the construction of the centre became necessary because of inadequate healthcare for the people, which compelled the Friends of Samuel N. Brown Network, a humanitarian organisation which helps vulnerable people across Liberia, to decide to construct the health centre to bring relief to the citizens in the town and its environs.

Sayegbouh said the project is expected to be completed by March this year, to be followed by an administrative complex in August.

The head of the network, Samuel N. Brown, was one of the contenders for the district #1 representative seat in Nimba County, but lost narrowly to Jeremiah Koung.

“Even though I lost the election, I still remain committed to my promise, and today the project is ongoing peacefully and speedily,” Brown said.

Meanwhile, the town chief of Nyor Diaplay has hailed Brown and his friends for remaining committed to his promise to carry out the construction of the health centre.
