Euodoo Foundation, on Friday donated nine bags of rice and school materials to the children of Janitors in Gambia Methodist Academy and Gambia High Schools.

Other donated items include soap, schools bags, shoes, books, rulers and face masks to protect the children from the deadly virus.

Headed by Solomon Palmer, a former student of Gambia Methodist Academy, the foundation sponsors children of Janitors both in The Gambia and Sierra Leone.

Hannah Harding, principal of Gambia Methodist Academy and coordinator of the sponsorship programme in The Gambia said the foundation is a charity group of young men and women who studied in The Gambia and now living in the U.S. She added that the foundation sponsors the children of cleaners in Methodist Academy and Gambia Senior Secondary Schools.

According to her, the foundation launched an initiative called “Operation Buy a Bag of Rice” in the U.S. and the proceeds received were sent to both The Gambia and Sierra Leone to provide food for the families of the children during these trying times.

Harding said the foundation has been sponsoring the children for the past three years and believed that cleaners are very important arm of any school administration, as they prepare the environment for the children.

“A school has to be located in a clean, healthy environment and the cleaners are making sure that this is maintained,” she said, urging the students to take the home lessons seriously and to study their books.

Speaking on behalf of the beneficiaries, Abdoulie Nyassy of Methodist Academy thanked the foundation for their timely support towards their education, promising that they would continue to work hard in school.

Parents of the children also showed appreciation for the efforts of the foundation and thanked them for the donation.
