The APRC France branch Thursday handed over some medical items to the Serrekunda Health Centre through the Kanifing Municipality, as part of complementing government efforts in health delivery system.

The handing over ceremony, which took place at KMC ground, was attended by the Mayor of KMC, senior KMC officials, and senior health personnel from the Serrekunda Health Centre.

Speaking at the ceremony, KMC Mayor Yankuba Colley thanked the APRC Youth Wing in France for donating the materials to the health centre, saying good citizens always help their country.

The country belongs to all and therefore they should help one another, he said, adding that whatever they do they “would not regret it” because they “are doing it for their own country”.

Mayor Colley therefore called on the association in France to support the 2016 vision, adding that the country would soon be better in agriculture.

Babou Gaye Sonko, National Youth Mobilizer, thanked the Gambian association in France for their hard work and therefore called on them to continue “the good work that they are doing”.

He called on other Gambians in other countries to help the country, adding that donating such items to the health centre was for the benefit of many people because Serrekunda constitute a lot of people.

He therefore advised the health centre to make good use of the materials for the benefit of the people.

Malia Beyai, President of Gambia Association of APRC Youth Wing in France, said the materials were donated to Serrekunda Health Centre as a contribution made by the association in France.

His association would do everything possible to contribute to the development of the country, he added.

He thanked President Yahya Jammeh for having the country at heart, saying the association would continue to rally behind the President and his government.

Receiving the items on behalf of the health centre, Gibril Tamba, eye specialist and senior manager, said the items would help them a lot in their work.

He said complementing government efforts in national development is important because government could not do it alone.

Tamba therefore thanked the association through their president, who “did everything possible to make sure the materials reach the country”.
