Liberia: Guss Group, Pharma Plus Prepares Donation to Ministry of Health
Monrovia – Guss Group of Companies and Pharma Plus Group are preparing to make a huge donation of medical equipment to the Ministry of health.
The donation is the two collaborating organizations’ contribution to solving some of the challenges facing Liberia’s health sector.
The two companies are present in 15 African countries Europe and Asia will be donating medical supplies to the people of Liberia through the ministry of health, at least to help the people of Liberia.
Amb Augustine W. Weah, CEO of Guss Group of Companies, said in a press statement that he was concerned about the state of the health sector and wants to help because “most of the hospitals and clinics across the length and birth of Liberia are closing due to lack of medicines and other logistics.”
“My organization will be donating medical equipment and logistics to the government of Liberia through the Ministry of Health in an effort to boost the government pro poor agenda for prosperity,” Weah said.
“The primary objective of humanitarian aid is to save lives, alleviate suffering, and maintain human dignity. It may therefore be distinguished from development aid, which seeks to address the underlying socioeconomic factors which may have led to a crisis or emergency.
Humanitarian aid is material or logistical assistance provided for humanitarian purposes, typically in response to humanitarian relief efforts including natural disasters and man-made disaster.
Weah, along with four other people, were accused of bribery at the National Housing Authority. The Case is still pending.
He said allegation led to his “illegal arrest and subsequent detainment at the Monrovia Central Prison”.
Although he is disappointed in what he called a “plot” against him, he’s still determined to contribute to the development of the country by doing “humanitarian and philanthropic works.
Said Weah: “As a private citizen and a humanitarian, as you can record sometimes last year i brought an investment to my country of birth to help create over 5,000 jobs to build over 50,000 homes with GELPAZ now name change to AXHIS international, for my people in an effort to boost the government pro-poor agenda for prosperity and development (PAPD).”
He alleged that “certain group of individuals within government has plotted against me because I have exposed corruption within government through the NHA”.
He continued: “I have come again, this time, through the Ministry of Health.
Humanitarian aid is usually short-term help until the long-term help by government and other institutions replaces it.”
