3 million dalasi water project has been commissioned in the community of Kerr
Sait Maram in the Central River Region (CRR) North, meant to ease the
challenges of accessing safe and clean drinking water in the village. The
project was bankrolled by one Cherno Krubally, a native of Kerr Sait Maram.
Speaking at the inauguration, Governor Sulayman Barry commended the donor for helping the community in overcoming water related challenges that they have been going through for long time. He encouraged others to do something for their community, arguing that government cannot do it all. He spoke about ways of maintaining the water facility, and advised the community elders to ensure that appropriate measures are taken to safeguard the water tank.
Sefo Pierre Bah said he was impressed after the successful completion of the water tank in the community, saying people have complained about water problems to him several times when there was no immediate solutions at that time. “When Cherno Krubally came, he made sure that those problems were solved. I’m happy just like you people are. We should now take it to the next level,” he said, urging the women to take advantage of the water facility to start vegetable gardening.
Lang Conteh, an associate of Krubally Construction urged the community to remain united and count themselves lucky for having a native who thinks about ways of helping them out in times of need. He told the people that his message was designed to inspire hope and determination into the minds of the young ones about reaching out. “This young man could have spent his money somewhere else or built a decent house for his parents but he decided to build something for the community to use,” Mr. Conteh said.
Cherno Krubally, provider of the project said he was proud of his community, saying wherever he visited or resided, his native community always came to mind. He said he felt that after spending his childhood in the village, he owed a debt of gratitude to the place that’s why he built the water tank with funds from his construction company.Several speakers, including Cherno Krubally’s biological parents also spoke at the event, heaping praises on their son for bailing the community out of a difficulty
