Financial Services on Wednesday donated three sets of spilt air conditions
value at D54,000 to the Serekunda General Hospital laboratory in Kanifing.
Officials of the microfinance institution said the donation was part of their activities of giving back to the community in contribution to the economic growth and development of The Gambia.
Njungu Fatty, chief executive officer of Supersonicz, said supporting the health sector is part of the noble cause that the institution identified for itself.
It was in this vein that they adopted Serekunda General Hospital laboratory following series of consultations with the hospital management, Mr Fatty explained.
He said at Supersonicz, they are aware of the fact that no government can do it alone, “their must be some partnerships within the private sector”.
Fatty affirmed that Supersonicz is a Gambian enterprise and it has the responsibility to give back to the society.
CEO of Serekunda General Hospital Saidu Beyai commended Supersonicz for the gesture, saying the donation has come to the right place and at the right time.
“Air condition was something lacking in the laboratory but thanks to Supersonicz that is now history; we want to thank for them,” he said.
CEO Beyai assured Supersonicz officials that henceforth, the laboratory will be called Supersonics Laboratory.
Head of the laboratory Baboucarr Babou urged Supersonicz to continue the partnership and with the hospital.
Alieu Badjie, public relations officer at Serekunda General Hospital, expressed gratitude to Supersonicz for providing the air conditions to the hospital’s laboratory.
