A church group, Zion Christian Fellowship (ZCF) over the weekend broke grounds for the construction of a150- bedroom hospital in the World Bank Community in Kakata, Margibi County.

The lead pastor of the church, Rev. Payne Clarke told our reporter that though the ground-breaking ceremony was just held, the project started sometimes far back with the foundation has a dimension of 120 by 60 feet already laid.

The clergyman narrated that the project is a vision that the Lord has given the church to build a hospital that will cater to the health needs of the Liberian people.
He explained that when completed the facilities will help enhance the work of God through the provision of medication for the sick, many other services including surgery.

Rev. Clark stated that the construction of the building is a blessing for the people of Margibi County and the country at large. He disclosed that the building will also contain seven general walls with three private walls, a theatre that will contain the surgical room and a nurse station among others.

According to him, with the estimated cost of nearly US$250,000, it will take the church six years to complete the entire project as funding for the project comes only from tithes and other fees paid by the congregation.

When asked if services at the hospital will be free, Rev. Clarke responded that it will not be free but if donors come in with support the the issue of fees will be at a minimum level.

Commenting on the issue of staff at the hospital, the pastor also disclosed that he is encouraging members of the church to go into the medical field. “Some of our members are already there and the church will only buttress their effort in order for them to get the requisite training that will able them operate the health center.
