May 18, 2020, 1:50 PM

All Peoples’ Party’s (APP) COVID -19 Taskforce has recently donated sugar and sanitary materials to 13 villages in the Jokadu and Saloum Districts in North Bank Region and Niamina District in Central River Region.

During the distribution process at Ndungu Kebbeh village, team leader Ebou Gaye said APP’s intervention in supporting the people is crucial; especially during the month of Ramadan. “Ramadan has always brought together our common values of kindness, charity and service to others,” he remarked, adding that the support comes at a time when people need it more than ever.

Mr. Gaye said this year will be an incredibly difficult time, as the world continues the battle against coronavirus, emphasising that there is need for people to adhere to precautionary measures such as maintaining social distancing and regular hand washing to avoid the contamination and spread of the virus.

“As we prepare for difficult time ahead, the All Peoples’ Party will remain in close dialogue with Gambian people to make sure that important requirements and behaviors are fully understood in their response to the corona virus disease pandemic.”

Begi Saine of Ndungu Kebbeh said the gesture has come at the right time, commending APP for sharing and caring with the people. “If you share something with a person, it means you care for him or her,” he said, noting that the support given his community and families is vital in the battle against COVID 19.

Alkalo of Sey Kunda also appealed for assistance for the provision of a water pumping system for the village. He said the one serving them had a breakdown and the only mean of them getting water is by hand drawn.

Ebra Ceesay of Mamud Fana village believes that APP is complementing government’s efforts in the fight against COVID-19. He warned that the viral disease is real and called on people to adhere to the Ministry of Health advice and the WHO guidelines.
