Karpowership The Gambia yesterday donated food items and other sanitary materials to the Gambia Police Force (GPF) and Banjul City Council (BCC) at a ceremony held in Banjul.

Karpowership is a top Turkish power production company that has been working with NAWEC in the supply electricity to Gambians. Karpowership began operating in The Gambia in 2018.

Yankuba Mamburay, the Karpower country manager dwelled on the significance of the donated materials, saying; “the donation is part of their social responsibility to give back to the people of The Gambia especially in this trying time of the coronavirus pandemic.”

“Currently, many people are staying at home as a result of the pandemic. Therefore, we thought it’s paramount to come to the aid of the beneficiaries and support them with food items,” he stated.

He maintained that the role that the police are playing in maintaining peace and stability in the country is paramount. Therefore, it’s also important to complement their efforts so that they can support their families in this difficult situation.

Mamour Jobe, the Inspector General of the GPF, thanked the entire management of Karpower for their benevolent gesture. The donated items, he added, will go a long way in helping the police, while assuring that the donated items will be distributed to members of the GPF accordingly.

“The donated items will complement the efforts of the council in its drive to support the most vulnerable families within the capital city,” Mayoress Rohey Malick Lowe said during the presentation held at the BCC.
