While handing over a consignment of medical drugs to the Nurse in charge, Nurse Eugenia Metzger from the Office of the First Lady told the Staff and patients present that it is the desire of the First Lady, that the drugs be used judiciously for the well being of her people.
The Nurse in charge promised that the drugs Will not be sold but rather would be used to treat patients.

The medical drugs were provided by Child Fund and were distributed to the Lumley Government Hospital, Connaught Hospital, Ola During Children’s Hospital, Makeni Government Hospital, Koidu Government Hospital and Tombodu Heath Centre.
