Al-Huda Foundation, a non-profit organisation in The Gambia founded in 2017 in partnership with Helping Hand for Relief Development (HHRD) based in the U.K., has recently distributed food items to 200 needy families worth D300, 000.

The items which include gallons of cooking oil, sugar, coos, rice and tea is a generosity meant to support the self-employed and employed persons who are required to stay at home due to covid-19 pandemic in complementing government effort.

Chairman of the Foundation, Alieu Lowe explained that the donation was scheduled for the Ramadan to support the needy families but because of the pandemic they could not do it at that time.

Executive supervisor, Sahal Jallow said the organisation has been operating for the past 3 years and members were previously contributing to support families prior to their partnership with Helping Hand for Relief Development.

He thanked Helping Hand for Relief Development for supporting the foundation in assisting 200 families during the pandemic.

Sarjo Jobe, a beneficiary thanked the foundation for the gesture, saying the donation could not have come at a better time than now. She observed that most families are suffering due to the coronavirus pandemic as most of them are staying home.

Abdoulie Jeng, membership coordinator said during last year’s Ramadan they were only able to help 10 needy families, noting that this is the biggest Al-Huda donation.
