Ebrima M. Jawaneh, president of Kairo Survivor Led Crisis Society, has on behalf of his organization, entreated all Gambians and non-Gambians living in The Gambia to renew their confidence for peace and stability in “this most peaceful country”.

 “Let us be optimistic about convergence at a peaceful solution and disregard unnecessary rumours that may instill fear in the gullible minds of the beneficiaries (the electorate),” he said.

 Mr Jawneh pleads to all stakeholders for the maintenance of The Gambia’s golden but rare peace.

Spiritual leaders and politicians should open more dialogue and speak well for peace in order to restore the confidence of the citizenry.

Mr Jawneh, who was speaking at his office situated at the Gambia Revenue Authority, explained that his organization is a non-profit and voluntary organisation formed and registered since 1 November 2016.

He said the organization is out to give support to individuals in crisis situations, thus creating an enhanced socio-economic environment for people living in The Gambia.

He added that the beneficiaries include youth and adult members of the society regardless of sex, religious denomination, nationality, political affiliation or cultural background.

According to him, the approach is mainly client services through phone calls, email correspondence, website visits and clients call in to the centre.

He also indicated that decisions on issues pertaining to crisis are led by the clients themselves through soft dialogue and self-reflecting discussions with personnel at the dial house.

“The approach is survivor-led where clients themselves are empowered in the process of bringing solutions to their problems,” he said.

Mr Jawneh further indicated that their key values include cherishing the principles of honesty, integrity and confidentiality in the execution of their duties.

He reiterated that the organisation seizes this opportunity to salute all peace-loving Gambians and friends of The Gambia wherever they may be with smiles of hopes and tranquility.

The Board Members including Dr Sidibeh, a psychiatrist and Dr Samba Faal, a former diplomat, both urged Gambians and non-Gambians resident in The Gambia to continue to pray for a peaceful resolution of the impasse.

“There is room for peaceful solution to our problem,” the group reiterated.
