The Gambia has registered 23 new coronavirus cases; taking the total number of COVID-19 cases confirmed in the country to 3,428.
Some native youth of the village most of whom risked their lives through the “backway” and now reside in the diaspora contributed to support families while also promoting healthy hygienic practices for members of the community.
The support primarily targeted the most vulnerable members of the village. In fact, immediate families and households of all those who contributed were excluded as beneficiaries of the donated food items. The sanitary materials and containers are stationed at strategic positions across the village.
The donation is in response to both national and international call for people to stay at home and stay safe in order to help mitigate the spread of the deadly coronavirus.
However, the food items were not enough for all the vulnerable households in the village. Therefore, further support is being sought from individuals and organisations to extend the support to more vulnerable families in Sittanunku village. Anyone who wishes to support this cause may contact the chairperson of Jerreh Sittanunku Development Association on +220 3925138.
