The Varney Taylor Foundation (VTF) has donated 40 bags of rice to the maternity centre and health workers of Redemption Hospital in Bushrod Island, Liberia. The Chief Executive Officer of VTF, Matthew Darblo, stated that his foundation would not be complacent in this difficult and challenging time. However, he told the hospital management to ensure that all the patients in the maternity ward received their own share of the rice.
‘Please, 20 bags of the 40 bags are for the babies‘ mothers or those who are here waiting for childbirth. Let each of them get some so that their relatives or friends can prepare for the next few days‘ meals’, he said.
The Medical Director of Redemption Hospital, Dr Williamatta S Williams-Gibson, applauded the foundation for the support to the hospital. She stated that they were grateful for the kind gesture and assured the foundation that the babies’ mothers will get their fair share of the rice donated.
VTF is a nonprofit organisation operating in the US and Liberia. Its principal objective is to see the less fortunate rise from the state of extreme poverty to a profitable existence. The foundation is involved in supporting the agricultural, educational and health sectors as well as other sectors aimed at promoting good and healthy living.
Before the Covid-19 pandemic, the foundation had donated fuel and money for medical supplies to Phebe Hospital in Gbarnga, Bong County, and paid the tuition fees of less fortunate students at the Bomi County Community College, the C H Dewey Central High School, St Dominic Junior High School and Al-Rashad Islamic School, all in Tubmanburg, Bomi County.
