The Minister, however, emphasized that the donation will be turned over to the John F. Kennedy Medical Center, which is one of the Country’s highest healthcare providers, for an immediate setup.

Meanwhile, the LNFS’ Deputy Director beseeched the Ministry to list some medical equipment that public hospitals and clinics lack so PMC can make interventions.

“We also want to bring you the good news that the DNA machine which the President spoke about has finally arrived, and it’s currently at the Ministry of Health. we will be unveiling it in the soonest possible time.” Dr. Jallah stated.
