As part of its Covid-19 mitigation efforts in Wuli, Beakanyang in collaboration with partners such as Kaira Kafo on Sunday donated food packages to vulnerable households in Wuli Barrow Kunda.

Speaking at the hand over occasion, Nfamara Jawneh, Executive Director of Beakanyang said the fund for the food packages was raised through a taskforce called Barrow Kunda Covid-19 Response Group on which he serves as chairperson. 

He thanked their benefactors for supporting the initiative, noting that more families are still struggling in rural areas as a result of the impact of Covid-19.

“We have realised that some families in this community are yet to receive any food aid since the outbreak of Covid-19. We are therefore happy to help such families by putting food on their table,” he said.

Village Development Committee members, Sarjo Bah and Morikebba Barrow, who are also members of the Covid-19 response taskforce thanked all those who supported the initiative and called for more support as more vulnerable families are still lacking support.

Beneficiaries such as Mamadi Touray, Kumbanding Fatty, Arfang Demba Touray and Kawsu Fatty all thanked the donors for the support.

Meanwhile, as part of the food package, 30 households were each given one bag of rice and 4-litre gallon of cooking oil.
