The former Consul General of India to Liberia, Mr. Upjit Singh Sachdeva and the Indian community in Liberia have made a huge donation of medical supplies to the Eye Center of the John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital in Monrovia to help ease constraints encountered by the Center.
Speaking at the turnover ceremony, the former Indian honorary diplomat commonly called “JEETY”, a name he got from his trademark business entity, the Jetty Corporation, lauded authorities of the state owned medical institution, particularly Doctors and other medical specialists who continued to have sleepless nights in caring for blind and other visually impaired persons in the country
The well-known businessman and humanitarian to the core said serving humanity remains one of the highest duties of mankind and called on Liberians to follow suit by transforming and advancing the lives and human dignity of the ordinary people in the country.
He said the donation by the Indian community in the country is part of a continued good will of the Community in showing love and compassion to the Liberian people.
“I believe that after four years of the establishment of the JFK Eyes Center, his dream to see the facility to its fullest capacity is coming true as he and the Indian community will collaborate to ensure the facility is functioning and operational.”
“Today we will be making an initial contribution of US$30,000.00, including soon to come other donations to help elevate this facility and other humanitarian supports. This commitment to see a successful Liberia remains uncompromising and we will apply all patterns to ensure this dream comes through.” Jetty stated.
