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

Exclusive – Rangers boss feels sympathy for Celtic counterpart

first_imgRangers manager Mark Warburton admits he has sympathy for under-fire Celtic boss Ronny Deila.Deila is under pressure following disappointing European and Scottish League Cup campaigns, while Aberdeen are chasing Celtic hard at the top of the Ladbrokes Premiership.Warburton and his team could put more pressure on the Norwegian in the William Hill Scottish Cup semi-finals, but the Rangers boss feels his counterpart is on the end of some ill-merited criticism. Warburton told Drivetime: “I referred to the goldfish bowl and it is a really passionate football city. I thought London was a football city and then you come to Glasgow and really they live and die for their football.“There’s 14-15 pages every day in the papers, there are radio shows every evening, and it’s scrutiny beyond belief. The fans phone in and it fuels the fire.“So, he’s top of the league. They had a difficult European campaign, okay, but what more can he do?“I do feel some sympathy for him but I think you know when you join a club like Celtic or Rangers, you know what you are putting yourself up for, that’s for sure.”Warburton, whose Championship leaders face Celtic in mid-April, added: “We took 9,000 officially to Kilmarnock on a Tuesday night, pouring with rain, on a Champions League night, but there were nearer 11,000 unofficially. It’s an unbelievable support.“This is the size of the club and we have got to enjoy it. The players have a responsibility, we have a responsibility and if we can get the environment right where they enjoy the responsibility, we will be in a good place. You have to thrive on it.”last_img read more
