The Michael Thomas Medical Foundation Train, which has been traveling from one community to another in Montserrado County District number 4 with medical equipment, touched patients’ lives in Rehab Drive Community recently
The Foundation Medical Train, which began its medical tour last year from Cross-River Community, has had massive medical impact on citizens in 21 communities of the district.
According to Atty. Michael M. Thomas, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of the Foundation, prior to the formation of the mobile clinic, they conducted several surveys in the district that pointed out challenges, but tackled medication that is cardinal to human well-being.
“The district is challenged in several ways, so as humanitarian grouping, we moved across the district from community to community providing free medical service to our people,” Atty. Thomas said. “Today the medical train is in Rehab Drive Community, the boundary between districts 4 and 6 to address the citizens’ health need.”
“Our old people, youths and young adults are financially challenged to go to Jemale Hospital at ELWA Intersection that is costly. Central Government can’t solve all the medical problem nationwide; therefore, we are buttressing the government’s effort,” he added.
The Thomas Medical Foundation, which treats typhoid, malaria, sugar, pressure, and so on, has qualified doctors, nurses and lab technicians. Its mobile clinic has medically benefited thousands of citizens in the district since it was launched in the Cross River Community and its subsequent advancement in several communities in the district.
Some beneficiaries of the mobile clinic at Rehab Drive Community, which included Jeremiah D. Kangar, Patient Titus, among others, in an appreciative tone, said at the Zubah Town Public school – where the free medical service was offered that since their presence in the community as residents, no one had offered them free meditation in the community as Representative-hopeful Thomas had done.
“Apart from the medical service, Thomas Foundation has educated our children and continuing it in a vocational school,” Elder Kangar said.
Madam Titus lauded Thomas saying, he is a kind gentleman who encouraged her to benefit the Mobile clinic service during its awareness.
