May 13, 2020, 1:15 PM | Article By: Sulayman Waan

Karmic Angel in partnership with Sir Farimang Singhateh Foundation has continued their free bread distribution to communities in the Kanifing Municipality and West Coast Region.

The distributions were held at Westfield, Serrekunda, Busumbala, Gunjur and Sukuta.

The two foundations signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to unanimously provide loaves of bread to the needy through the mobilisation of funds in the month of Ramadan.

Muhammed Touray, country fundraising coordinator for Karmic Angel- The Gambia Chapter said the gesture is meant to support the poor in the holy month of Ramadan because many have been economically affected due COVID-19 pandemic.

He appealed to the donors to continue helping the foundations so that they can continue the free bread distribution to the needy.

Kemo Kitabou Singhateh, spokesperson of Sir Farimang Singhateh foundation also said the goodwill gesture is meant to maintain the legacy of Gambia’s former governor general, Sir Farimang Singhateh.

He recalled that the former governor-general used to offer humanitarian services to Gambian people prior to his official appointment. “Therefore, the foundation is trying its best to maintain the good work of the late governor.”

Jam Camara, assistant country fundraising coordinator of Kamic Angel- The Gambia Chapter described the free bread distribution as paramount.

“Many people are living from hand to mouth. So it is important that we come as good citizens to donate the little thing we have to the needy,” he said.

Lamin Keita, a beneficiary commended the foundations for what he called their goodwill gesture, saying the gesture is significant because many people lack the financial muscle to buy loaves of bread to break their fast.
