Alhagie Pierre Bah, the chief of Niani in Central River Region has expressed gratitude to one Alhagie Yahya Bah, a citizen of Sundu Sareh Gubu residing in Spain for his magnanimity to a fire victim within his district.

Yahya Bah supported the native of Pallol Wollof with a cash amount of fifteen thousand dalasi (D15,000) to purchase cement, corrugates among other materials.                           

Bayo Sowe, a native of Pallol Wollof had his seven houses, food items, clothes and other valuables perish during an inferno that consumed his house.

Chief Bah, who received the assistance for onward presentation to the Sowe Family, thanked the Spain-based Gambian for the magnanimity and effort in complementing government’s own in disaster mitigation.

The beneficiary also thanked Yahya Bah for reducing their burden.

Chief Bah commended the donor for the gesture, reminding him not to forget where he came from.

He equally appealed to government, private sector, donors and philanthropists to emulate Mr Bah in supporting the needy.

Alkalo of the village, Alhagie Sering Secka hailed benefactor Bah for the gesture, further acknowledging that the inferno left Sowe and his family with nothing.
