A total of 330 Motor Bikes and 22 Vehicles were on Thursday 16th October 2008 commissioned and handed over to the Ministry of Health and Sanitation by the Institutional Reform and Capacity Building Project (IRCBP) with funding from the World Bank.

Delivering his statement at the Conference Room of Medical Stores, New England in Freetown, IRCBP’s Acting Coordinator, Mr. Emmanuel A. R Gaima described the occasion as an historic one and thanked the World Bank for providing the necessary funding for the actualization of the 330 motor bikes and 22 vehicles.

"The consignment is geared towards the reproductive child health programme which is part of the 1st phase in the decentralization programme," he noted, while pointing out that the motorbikes and vehicles are meant for the District Health Medical Team (DHMT) /Local Councils under RCHP1.

He says the phase 1 of the project for which the World Bank provided six million dollars will be completed by the end of December this year, adding that if the assessment proves that the phase 1 was adequately implemented, the phase two will be more lucrative than that of the phase 1.

He therefore used the forum as an opportunity to call on the beneficiaries to handle the consignment with great care, while adding that they are setting a maintenance care center in Freetown.

The Minister of Internal Affairs, Local Government and Rural Development, Dauda Kamara expressed happiness over such laudable boost since he assumed office.

He therefore called on the doctors to work with the councils in making sure the boost reflects their output as far as service delivery to the people of this country is concerned.

The vehicles and motorbikes were officially commissioned by the Minister of Health and Sanitation, Dr. Soccoh Kabia.
