RPI Opens New Clinic
Since 2014, the Refuge Place International (RPI) has been complementing the Government of Liberia's effort to provide healthcare. The Organization provides quality, affordable and accessible healthcare to about 65,000 of the most vulnerable citizens in the Country. These services have been provided in two health facilities: Bassa Town and Low Cost Health Centers; both facilities are located in Montserrado County (Liberia). As a continuous growth process of the institution, a third health center was dedicated on January 27, 2022. The new health facility is called the Refuge Place International Maternal and Child Center and is located in Nyema Town, 45 miles from Monrovia (Liberia). This health center will provide quality, affordable and accessible healthcare to over 10,000 rural community dwellers within 32 villages.
The foundation of the Nyema Satellite clinic began in 2014 during the Ebola epidemic. During the outbreak, 37 villagers were affected by the virus. Of this number, 14 died. The virus highlighted the vulnerability of Nyema Town which had no healthcare center at the time. In order to mitigate the health challenge and prevent future recurrence, the traditional leaders of Nyema Town contacted Dr Mosoka Fallah requesting his support to construct a health facility. Without hesitation, Dr. Fallah worked with the citizens of Nyema Town to realize this dream.
RPI Conducts Free Medical Screening
On January 26, 2022, RPI conducted the second free medical outreach in Nyema Town, Careybrug. The village is affected by deplorable road conditions which makes it difficult to access heath care. Some patients have to walk up to 5 hours to get medical attention. RPI free screening coincided with the opening of the new clinic in Nyema Town. The medical outreach provided free service for 105 patients. Among those screened, there were children heavily infected with malaria, scabies and acute malnutrition. Free eye screening was conducted and several preventable eye conditions were detected among both young and elderly. The building of the clinic in the Nyema community serves as a beacon of hope for primary healthcare services for the most vulnerable.
