“We thought it wise to buy some medical materials in order to contribute our part inimproving the health sector. Mostof us live in Serrekunda with our sisters, brothers and other family members who use to come here. We believed our donation will go along way in helping the facility implement its work,” he stated.

He said Beaux’ arts is initiated by young people engaged in arts such as musicians, promoters, and technicians in order to bring artistes together to showcase their talents and skills to move the music industry forward.

He thanked their partners. He said the theme for February 2021 festival is ‘Respect Skills and Talents’.

Officer in Charge of the health center David Junior Daye stated that getting the materials is an additional plus to the health center.

“We have been trying to lobby for it because when it comes to delivery, we need both the drier and wet stabilizer. Serrekunda health center is one of the oldest centers within the region, so we call on private sector, donors, organisation and individuals to come and assist us with some goods because the center belongs to everybody,” he appealed.

He thanked the donors, saying they anticipate more support from the public, as the center operates without water.
