first_imgThe Jahmale Medical Solutions Diagnostic Center in Paynesville.It is a common practice in Liberia that top government officials and those who can afford to seek medical attention outside of the country because the government has not done enough to improve the country’s health delivery system.To assuage this state of affairs, the National Social Security and Welfare Corporation (NASSCORP) has fulfilled its vision conceived a little over a year ago when last Friday it dedicated the multi-million dollar Jahmale Medical Solutions Diagnostic Center, located behind NASSCORP House which hosts the Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA) at ELWA Junction.The state-of-art facility will provide much needed high-level laboratory and imaging diagnosis to thousands of citizens.

The young singer and Blue Ribbon group member accepted the honour and wowed the crowds with her flawless vocals. Katie was approached through her school, SN Taobhoige, to take on the prestigious role. Her proud dad Jimmy McCarthy said: “Katie jumped at the chance, knowing this was such an honour to be asked, but knew she only had 24 hours to practice. As the parade starting time approached, so did the excitement.”It’s hard to believe that this was a last-minute performance for Katie, and as Jimmy is heard saying in the video, she really ‘nailed it’.WATCH: This 12-year-old’s take on the national anthem will leave you speechless was last modified: March 19th, 2018 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Amhrán na bhFiannkatie mcCarthyletterkennynational anthemparadeSingingSt Patrick’s Daylast_img read more
