Presenting the items to officials of the Centre at Salagi, SLA Founder, Momodou Sabally, stated that their intervention was a token gesture done in the spirit of responsible citizenship at a time of great challenge for everybody.
“We know that government cannot do everything alone and that is why we also joined other Gambians currently volunteering and donating resources in our common fight against this deadly COVID-19 pandemic”, he asserted. He reiterated his call made during previous presentations of gifts that people need to abide by advice given by healthcare professionals, including proper hand-washing and social distancing.
Sabally thanked the officials at Tanka Tanka for taking time off their busy schedules to receive him and his team at short notice and promised that his youth development foundation, SLA, will return to the centre for further support.
