The German investment company made a declaration on Thursday to reactivate the “Doctors to Liberia” program in order to contribute to the development of a resilient health sector in the country as part of its social responsibility.
“The company will also bring doctors from Germany to Liberia and take over the costs for the doctors, the drugs and the sick,” said the declaration, signed by Richie Engl, CEO and Jürgen Bertram.
Thesaurum Gold Exploration Ltd also announced in its statement that it has acquired all licenses and mining rights and that it has signed a final joint venture with the claimant.
