USAID Donates Medical, Nutritional Supplies for Patients Recovering from the Totota Fuel Tanker Explosion

MONROVIA – The United States Government, through the Agency for International Development (USAID) Mission in Liberia, has provided essential medical and nutritional supplies to Liberia’s Ministry of Health to support the ongoing care for patients recovering from the tragic fuel explosion in Totota, Bong County which claimed 80 lives and more than 250 victims.
Through the USAID Frontiers Health Market (FHM) Engage activity, the support is intended to meet the critical medical and nutritional needs of the fire victims, who have been undergoing medical care at both public and private health facilities in communities in Bong, Margibi, and Montserrado counties.


Specifically, USAID donated essential medical commodities such as materials for wound care, analgesics (pain relief drugs), antibiotics, personal protective equipment, and nutritional support, including protein food items. This intervention demonstrates the United States’ commitment to ensuring high-quality health services and products are available, especially in a time of adversity, such as this one.
On December 26, 2023, a tanker believed to be carrying some nine thousand (9,000) gallons, according to eyewitnesses, fell off the road while trying to dodge a speeding pick-up that was headed from the opposite direction and exploded several minutes later on Mulbah Hill, Totota, Bong County.
The explosion happened when residents of the area began siphoning petrol from the tanker that had fallen off the road.
Residents of the area began siphoning petrol from the tanker while others gathered to watch the scene on-folding.
The tanker exploded several minutes later after falling off the road with no one on the scene expecting or noticing any sign of fire when suddenly, the explosion erupted and gutted some onlookers who weren’t siphoning patrol.
Background:
Supported by USAID, Frontier Health Markets Engage is a global cooperative agreement focused on improving health markets and equal access to and uptake of high-quality, consumer-driven, health products, services, and information. FHM Engage is implemented by four core consortium partners –Chemonics International (prime and co-technical lead), Results for Development (R4D) (co-technical lead), Pathfinder International, and Zenysis Technologies.
