With utmost respect and dignity, Senator Moye said the Health Team has played a vital role in the recovery and burial process, ensuring that those whose lives were lost, including a pregnant woman, were treated with care and reverence.

Notwithstanding, the Bong County Senator has underscored the need for continued support from individuals, humanitarian organizations, and the wider community, which is crucial in ensuring adequate care for the victims of the devastating incident that occurred in Totota.

Senator Prince Kermue Moye Sr. recently presented 20 cartoons of IV fluid, 4 drums of fuel oil, including payments toward the purchase of ointments to rub on the burns of the victims of the devastating incident.

The down-to-earth lawmaker further pledged his fullest support to the Bong County Health Team for the overall improvement of the healthcare delivery system in the county and Liberia at large.

He made the statement in Totota, Lower Bong County, during the visitation of Liberia President-Elect Joseph N. Boakai.

The president-elect expressed his profound sympathy to the families of those who lost their lives in a major fire incident in Central Liberia on Tuesday, December 26, 2023.

Ambassador Boakai said images of the tragedy are deeply disturbing and calls on the public to reach out to the affected families as other requisite institutions of government aid with recovery and treatment efforts.

President-elect Boakai promised to make available ten million Liberian dollars (10,000,000) and donated 200 bags of rice (25kg).
