All Africa —
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Association in the United Kingdom has donated two checks, totaling ten thousand British Pounds (£10,000.00) to the government of Liberia to assist in the fight against the spread of the deadly EBOLA virus across the country.
According to a press release, the money is intended to purchase essential medical supplies and protective gears for medical practitioners, who have dedicated their time and efforts in the fight against the virus.
At a special ceremony in London over the weekend, the National President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association in the United Kingdom, Rafiq Hayat, noted that the health situation in Liberia is of grave concern to his association, especially at a time when the country is undertaking a massive rebuilding process.
Mr. Hayat said the amount is the association’s initial contribution and efforts will be made to rouse more support from other Ahmadiyya communities. The checks were presented to the Liberian Ambassador accredited to the Court of St. James, Rudolf von Ballmoos, who later turned them over to a representative of the Liberia Medical and Dental Association in the United Kingdom, Dr. Kokulo Waiwaiku and the President of the Union of Liberian Organizations in the United Kingdom, Mr. Prince Taylor.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community currently operates an eleven bedroom health center in Tubmanburg, Bomi County, which was constructed in 2007 at the cost of $70,000.00 to buttress government’s health care delivery system. The clinic was dedicated by Vice President Joseph N. Boakai.
