Liberia’s President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has dedicated the county’s first state-of-the art eye clinic today at the John F Kennedy Memorial Medical Center, in Monrovia.

The opening of the clinic is part of celebrations to mark the country’s 170th independence anniversary this week.

Cornea transplants will now be performed in the country for the first time, and seven patients have been selected for the maiden operations.
