first_imgThe doctors posed shortly after the farewell ceremonyAn International humanitarian organization known as “Hernia International” in collaboration with the E&J Medical Center in Ganta, Nimba County, has completed another phase of “free surgical service” on patients with hernia-related diseases.The medical team of doctors from Spain was headed by Dr. Ceasar Rimarer. They performed 208 surgeries on those with hernia-related cases from April 20 – 29, 2018.Children who were diagnosed of hydrocele and women with umbilical hernia were among patients that benefited from the operation. A hydrocele is a type of swelling in the scrotum that occurs when fluid collects in the thin sheath surrounding a testicle. It is common in newborns and usually disappears without treatment by age 1, a medical research has shown. The operation brought relief to hundreds of underprivileged people, who have been suffering from the disease without any hope of treatment due to lack of money for many years.“I thank these doctors and E&J family for providing the free service for us,” said one Evelyn, a mother of a 7-year-old boy who benefited from the exercise.In November 2017, a team of doctors from Slovenia, representing Hernia International, also conducted “free surgical operation” for people with the disease at the same venue.Some of beneficiaries waiting in OPDThe team’s visit  marked the fourth since the E&J Medical Center, in collaboration with Hernia International, began the free medical operation.Meanwhile, the Chief Executive Officer of the hospital Representative Jeremiah Koung has also thanked the Spanish team for the operation, adding, “nobody can pay for what you have done.”The hospital’s administrator Victor Kpaiseh gave one of the Spanish doctors a traditional name, “Luah,” which in the Dan language means blessing. The name “Luah” derived from the way the doctor was directing members of the team to remain focus as they performed each of the hernia cases.Kpaiseh then called on members of the team to always remember the hospital and consider it as their own.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Man United star responds to claims he is ‘disillusioned’ at Old Trafford

first_imgManchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has quashed claims he is unhappy at the club.The Spaniard, who has been sidelined for the past two games with a hamstring injury, has not always been a regular starter under Louis van Gaal.Recent newspaper reports suggested Herrara has become “disillusioned” with life at Old Trafford owing to his lack of game time and is seeking showdown talks with Van Gaal.However, the 26-year-old attempted to allay fears he is unhappy by positive a message on Twitter on Tuesday.Alongside a picture containing part of an interview he did with the club’s matchday programme for last week’s game against PSV Eindhoven, Herrera said: “Interview given last week. Very happy at Manchester United.”The image contains the pull quote: “I don’t want this dream to finish. I have to play as well as possible if I want to play as long as I can at this club.”Herrera, who has made 45 appearances and scored 11 times since moving to England, had stated in the interview that he was determined to fight for his place having moved from Athletic Club in the summer of 2014.“When I was in Spain, I always thought about the best teams in the world and maybe the biggest and most-supported club is Manchester United,” he told United Review.“So I worked very hard to be here. When I was in Spain, I was very professional and had to be very consistent to get here.“Now I am here, I always say the same thing: the most difficult thing is to stay at a big club.“Of course, it is difficult to arrive at a big team in the first place, but it is even harder to stay there. The club has the possibility to sign new players and it’s a very powerful club so all players want to play here. I have to fight for my position and gain my position and I will do it.” 1 Ander Herrera last_img read more
