The Coker Njie Family Foundation, a charitable organisation based in Sweden, founded by Ebou Njie and Saffie Coker-Njie, a Gambian couple in Sweden on Sunday embarked on a family visit within the greater Banjul areas, meant to give support to the vulnerable children who are less privileged in society.

Speaking at the presentation of the gifts,  Ebou Njie, the team leader and the man behind the organisation, said the foundation was created five years ago as a small charitable organisation with the aim of assisting the most vulnerable children in The Gambia.

He said looking at the situation in Africa they thought it prudent to create the foundation so as to give support to the most vulnerable children.

He further advised the parents of the less privileged children not to discriminate their children, as he stated, no one wish to live in such a difficult condition.

For her part, Jainaba Sallah of Abuko, a mother to one of the beneficiaries, thanked the Coker-Njie Family Foundation for their intervention.

Bintou Mbye, also a mother to Hoja Jagne, another beneficiary hailed the Coker-Njie Family for giving support to her child.

For her part, Saffie Coker-Njie, the wife of the Chief Executive Officer of the Coker-Njie Family Foundation reaffirmed their commitment in helping the poor and the needy.
