Presenting the items, Mr. William A. Adetona, executive director of the foundation, explained that the foundation focuses mainly on the health sector by providing multi-vitamins for pregnant women and lactating mothers as well as making vitamin A available for children under age five.
The foundation, he added, is also aims at empowering women, thereby reducing infant mortality and malnutrition in the country.
He indicated that over the years, the organization has intervened in the areas of education and health, saying there is no country in the world where the government alone can do everything.
In view of this, he said, the intervention is required from civil society organisations to support government in achieving its objectives of providing sustainable development for the citizens.
Responding, a nursing officer at the Banjulinding Health Centre, Mr. Jawla said the donated materials would be very beneficial for pregnant women and breast-feeding mothers and will also help a lot in reducing infant mortality in the country as the multi-vitamins and vitamin A are of very good quality.
He thanked the donors for their annual intervention at the centre and promised that the health facility will make sure the materials get to the intended beneficiaries.
