Supportive Activist Foundation boosts EFSTH

Monday, April 16, 2018

Supportive Activist Foundation last week donated gifts to Edward Francis Small Teaching Hospital (EFSTH) Children clinic in Banjul. The Foundation also engaged the kids in activities like paintings, singing, games and many other activities.

Solomon Correa, founder of the Foundation said their objective is to help people in need of support and those with mental illness. “We are trying to respond to our objectives by giving psychological support to our targeted people, be it in the needy situation, mental illness, crises, or the sick people,” he added.

Under the theme: Psychological First Aid, Mr. Correa said they conducted the activity in celebration of the Foundation’s second year anniversary. “We deemed it necessary to donate to the children in the hospital because it is undoubted that they are one way or the other missing their friends and families. Some are scared and worried for the fact that they are hospitalised,” he said.

Binta Jallow, mother of a 3-year old patient thanked the donors for bringing smiles to the faces of sick children, adding that if such gestures continue, it can help in curing the kids psychologically.

Another mother Fatou Ceesay recommended the work of the Foundation, saying that changing the mood of sick children is something that only God can reward.
