National GSM operator Gamcel is to give Tobaski rams to 10 lucky winners whose numbers appeared in the raffle draw of the Tobaski promotion held at the company’s head office in Kanifing.
The draw was administered in English, Wollof and Mandinka language by Mr Sering Ceesay, supervisor of product development and research, Ms Nancy Secka, marketing communication, and Alieu Dampha, marketing supervisor at Gamcel respectively, who all said they have been doing this over the years.

Highlighting some of the interventions, she mentioned agriculture, which she said they had given power tillers to the locals to boost crop production, thus achieving food security and alleviating poverty.
Alieu Dampha said the company had sent a lot of Gambians to Mecca, and their contribution in other areas such as sports had been “immense”.
“We have also done a lot in the health sector, and in every sector we have touched the lives of people to benefit them, as we endeavour to add value to the lives of our customers,” he added.
