“They damaged the computer that is at the OPD that we use to register patients. They damaged plastic chairs, they damaged a BP apparatus, they damaged spirits, and other commodities that we use. They also entered the lab and destroyed things and we are still compiling the comprehensive list and the DCE has asked us to submit it to him to see how best they can reimburse the facility so that service to God and country can be continued.”
