AGA Global support Gambian families with Eid food

May 22, 2020, 12:45 PM

AGA Global Ambassadors UK and Gambia will present bags of rice, cooking oil and onion to Gambian families today, in observance of the Muslim feast of Eid al-Fitr, marking the end of the month-long dawn-to-sunset fasting of Ramadan.

Sixteen families across the country will benefit from the generosity of 16 bags of rice, 16 gallons of cooking oil and eight bags of onion. 

Late last month, the charitable organisation also supported five Gambian families with one hundred and fifty pounds sterling at the commencement of the Muslim month of Ramadan. Earlier the same month, the charitable trust donated 12 bags of 25kg rice to families in various Gambian communities who are currently not able to earn funds to provide food for their families during the isolation period of covid-19 pandemic.

The organisation also donated buckets and sanitary materials to mosques, hospitals and other places across the country in a bid to manage and contain the spread of coronavirus in the country.

AGA Global Ambassadors UK/Gambia is a non- profit group based in United Kingdom who share the passion to help disadvantaged communities across Africa, particularly in The Gambia. Over the years, they have supported Gambia’s education and health sectors as well as the less privileged.

“I learnt to give not because I have a lot but because I know how it feels to have nothing,” founder, Sister Angie Graham said.

Gambian President Adama Barrow this week declared another 21-day state of public emergency as a result of the covid-19 pandemic in the country.
