Making the presentation, Dr. Alimamy Koroma said he has been assisting disabled since he was working at the Bo and Kenema Government hospitals in the provinces and continued even when he was transferred to Freetown.
He told the Disabled to thank the Deputy Minister of Health and Sanitation 1, Madam Madina Rahman, who has been very instrumental for him to get these wheel chairs through a container donated by the Sierra Leone Bottling Company to the Health Ministry.
Dr. Koroma told the disabled that as doctors, they are in the hospital not only to take care of pregnant women, lactating mothers and children under five but also the disabled who cannot afford to foot medical bills.
Receiving the items, the Chairlady, Disabled at Fourah Bay Road, Madam Salamatu Sankoh thanked Dr. Alimamy Koroma for the gesture, stating that this is not the first time he has been rendering assistance to them but since he came to the hospital as Medical Superintendent.
She described Dr. Koroma as a father for the disabled at Fourah Bay Road and its environs and prayed that God will continue to provide for him and called on other meaningful people to fellow his good example.
Handing over of the wheel chairs and presentation of gift as sign of appreciations formed high point of the ceremony.
