She praised authorities of the Ministry of Heath, Minister, Bernice Dahn, Senator Peter Coleman, Chairperson on Health at the Liberian Senate, and others for the achievements in carrying out the construction of the facility. President Sirleaf maintained that the maintenance of these facilities will be one of the major tasks of maintaining the facility.

In remark, Dr. Bernice Dahn, Minister of Health disclosed that the total cost of the project is approximately $5 million United States Dollars. She added that the Government of Liberia is providing $1.2 million United States Dollars. The Minister of Health revealed that Phase 1 of the “New Redemption Hospital will comprise of 155 in-patient beds with focus on paediatrics care and women health care services.

Minister Dahn said Phase-II will comprise of 159 in-patient beds and will include additional specialized services. The New Redemption Hospital will help the Ministry of Health to deliver comprehensive services to the growing population and avert future epidemics.

'He kicked me in the stomach, I peed on myself. He body-slammed me to the floor twice and told me he would kill me, no one will find my body.: In her journey to recovery, domestic violence survivor Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman tells it all

The tragic story of Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman, like that of Agnes Yarlee and Diane Hart before her, has brought the issue of domestic abuse out of the dark unspoken place it thrives and into the open.
It's horrendous that it takes the death of women, or an attempt to kill women, to get a serious debate  on the issue of domestic abuse. Discussing domestic violence in our society is a real taboo and most men within the Liberian society, don't even find the topic worth their time, as compared to discussing sports, politics and corruption. 
But these women mention above are just the tip of the iceberg.


Defying the odds, Mrs. Dennis-Freeman refuses to keep her mouth shut and go with the flow of the Liberian society.  She courageously sat in a wheel chair up to 1:30am, sharing her story with C Liberia Clearly.  In her own words, she walked us through the day that led to her horrific story.
