The distribution was held at Fagi Kunda on Saturday.

Mohamed Touray, country fundraising coordinator for Kamic Angels- The Gambia Chapter said the two foundations requested financial assistance from donors in order to help the needy in this holy month of Ramadan.

He added that the two charitable organizations are helping the people in this holy month of Ramadan because many of them lack the financial capacity to buy bread for their families.
