About 200 new baby mothers at the maternity wards at the John F. Kennedy and Redemption Memorial Hospitals received branded gift bags containing assorted baby items including diapers and pampers, baby wipes, baby soap, feeding bottles, towels, caps, and bibs. 

The donation exercise according to APM Terminal is a part of its corporate social initiative program led by the women of the company to mark the Christmas occasion and to extend love to women who had successfully gone through the labor of child delivery. 

As female staff being a vibrant arm of the APMT workforce has been leading some of APMT’s social initiative activities in the year concluding in the donation to mothers at the two hospitals on Christmas Day. 

Commenting on the rationale behind the gesture, Eva Dobor-Sonpon, Women’s Chair of the Workers Union said, the donation is APMT’s own way of celebrating Christmas with the rest of Liberia.  She said, the company chose to support new baby mothers because of the strategic importance of maternal health and the role that women play in general. 

An elated group of new mothers at both hospitals could not hide their joy at the gesture and thanked APMT for this gesture.  The Hospital Administrator at JFK Memorial Hospital, Laurene Hawa Nyenpan who spoke on their behalf said the gesture is a strong demonstration of love and will go a long way to support these women in catering for their new babies.
