VIP Lights' Impact
Transcript of Video Interview on VIP Lights’ Impact at the Tenegar Community Clinic, Bomi County, Liberia
Visit made on 2/16/2019 by Miatta Johnson, VIP Country Director
My name is Krubo Davis and I’m the OIC (officer-in-charge[?]) for Tenegar Community Clinic. As I told you, Sister Miatta, the lights that were given to us are very useful to us. This clinic has four catchment communities and we have 8447 population (people) to treat in this small clinic. Most of the times, the deliveries can come to us at night. So, the lights that you gave us are helping us in that the traditional midwives who care for pregnant women in the villages use the lights to transport pregnant women to the clinic. We told the midwives not to do deliveries again but to bring them to the clinic. One of the midwives was bitten by snake while traveling to the clinic. Since they have the light, they are able to see where they are walking. Some of them live 3 to 4 hours from the clinic. So, we really appreciate the lights. Since you gave us the lights, we don’t have any problems with them. They are still working fine, even the solar plates (panels) are doing fine because the people came here and taught us how to use it, how to switch it on, and how to switch it off. I am appealing to you for our traditional midwives to get lights.
