 In a bid to consolidate the mutual relationship that exists between the government and the private sector, a home-based organisation known as Family Care Organisation, last Tuesday donated medical equipment to the Bakau Health Centre.

Founded by a young Gambian, with the aim of giving hope to the hopeless through education, healthcare, environmental protection and sanitation management, the organisation was registered last year.

Speaking at the presentation ceremony, the nurse-in-charge of Bakau Health Centre, Mrs. Haditou Jobe Ndure described the gesture as timely, noting that it would go a long way towards complementing government's effort in providing affordable and accessible healthcare to all Gambians. 

The founder and the Executive Director of Family Care Organisation, Mr. Fatajo elucidated that they are trying to give support to under-privileged community, adding that "in so doing we need to realise our full potential, and play a role in national development."

He explained that they want to transform the youths to be skilled-oriented and turn The Gambia into an education super power of Africa.

This, he added, is geared towards bringing the fundamental aims of Vision 2020 into reality.

Mr. Fatajo called on the government and other parastatals to lend a helping hand to them in their drive to give hope to the hopeless. He also urged the youths to fully participate in bringing good initiative programme.
