Karmic Angels, an international Registered Charitable Organisation operating in the UK and The Gambia on Sunday made a handsome donation of football jerseys and balls to the Young Arsenal Football Club of Lamin.
Known for its humanitarian gesture, Karmic Angels aims at providing aid and relief to the people in The Gambia to contribute to the development of the country.
The presentation ceremony was held at Lamin village in Kombo North, West Coast Region of The Gambia, where the founding director and chairman of Karmic Angels Stephanie and Alan Turner made the donation to club.
Speaking at the presentation ceremony, the co-founding director of Karmic Angels, Stephanie Turner, said the charitable organisation “is here to help Gambian communities”.
“I was really impressed with this young guys and this is what we can do for them. The Manager of Young Arsenal FC Sulayman Sanyang introduced us to the team and coaching staff Bakary Dibba, and after our introduction we are impressed and decided to give them the little we have,” Stephanie explained.
Alan Turner, chairman of the charity, said they would continue to help The Gambia through the charity.
“Karmic Angels is still a small charity; it has already taken on several more projects of similar nature involving initiatives with a number of schools for different age groups,” Alan proudly said.
Manager Sulayman Sanyang and coach Bakary Dibba of Young Arsenal expressed appreciation with Karmic Angels for the donation. They assured the charity that the jerseys would go a long way in helping the young team to cope with their demands.
Pa Louis Gomez, director and trustee of Karmic Angels The Gambia, says as a Gambian he is happy seeing the charity help his fellow Gambians.
“We are proud of our founder and chairman, Stephanie and Alan Turner, for the gesture. We are on track to fulfilling our targets,” he added.
Since their arrival in the country, the couple are busy donating various learning and leisure materials to social and private institutions in the country to contribute in helping Gambian communities.
The delegation will today donate to the Gunjur School.
