Yankuba Jallow, Maerskline sales representative said there is a lot of fear for one’s life and in such circumstances the search for opportunities to acquire the basics of livelihood become difficult and worrisome.
Mr Jallow stated that it is important to give and reach out to communities in different ways, saying this was why Maerskline decided to assist Banjulians through their city council.
He expressed hope that the support will go a long way in giving the community the comfort they require, saying that Maerskline continues to be in the forefront in making sure that supply chain such as food and medicine are sustainable and essential and reach those in need globally in this difficult time.
Naffie Barry, chairperson of Banjul Relief Initiative described covid-19 as a global menace that puts everyone at risk of contracting.
She said the virus has kept people away from work and hence the need for assistance, expressing gratitude to Maerskline for the support and assured them that the rice will meet the need of the people.
She noted that in addition to government covid-19 food aid, they have an initiative that seeks to support and complement government efforts for Banjul inhabitants.
According to her they will follow up on government covid-19 food aid and give every other person that has not received it.
