Recently, Minister Kenneth Amoksi of Justice and Police presented placards to the workers of the Emergency Room (ER) at the Academic Hospital Paramaribo and the main barracks of the Suriname Fire Brigade. The Ministry is satisfied with the emergency services staff’s dedication to helping traffic victims. The exceptional dedication and help the fire crew provides during collisions is also greatly appreciated. Additionally present was the Road Safety Institute (VVI) management.
The sign says: Grantangi (thanks), a humanitarian like you makes Suriname happy. The sign was given to Lindy Liauw-Kie-Fa, the hospital’s medical director, at the ER. She predicted that the placard would be given a respectable spot. Amoksi thanked the ER team and wished them much strength as they carried out their duties. “I know how busy it can be here, but you guys are doing a terrific job.” The minister stressed that despite the suffering of others, the staff must carry out their duties in a professional manner, according to the Suriname Communications Service.
The minister advised the staff to continue demonstrating sympathy for the suffering of the relatives of those killed or injured on the road. Similar to the minister, director Joanne Adraai of the VVI expressed her appreciation to the emergency room nurses. “Under any conditions, they are always prepared to welcome the victims. By making this gift, we want to express our gratitude to them, added Adraai.
