As part of their efforts to contribute to the control of and spread of coronavirus pandemic in The Gambia, Radville Farms with support from Waltrose, recently donated sanitary materials and food aid to various communities that are directly benefiting from Radville Farm.

The presentation was held at the Radville Farms’ Tubakuta farm and was attended by its senior management and staff. The donated items include face masks, detergents, soap and sugar.

Mamadou Sey, Radville Farms’ human resource officer said they were pleased to continue supporting communities, particularly during the course of the coronavirus pandemic in coping with the difficulties.

He seized the opportunity to thank their parent company in the UK and Waitrose Foundation for the initiative, saying the support will go a long way in supporting and preventing its workers from the pandemic.

He also advised all the Radville Farms workers to adhere to the precautionary measures that would greatly help them from contaminating the deadly virus.

Sulayman Mboge, financial operation manager and the company’s secretary commended the donor and their parent company for the laudable support, saying Radville Farms employs more than one thousand five hundred workers who interact on daily basis. He said it would be devastating if even one of their staff contaminates the virus.
