Rainbow Gene, a newly formed charity organisation was recently inaugurated to assist children and improve their living conditions.

She expressed hope that the new charity in the future would go global in their broader advocacy to help children. “Nothing is too big if you believe in it.” she said.

Welcoming the gathering, Alagie Nyan, Alkalo of Medina Kanuma expressed optimism that the charity would go a long way in shaping the future of the children.
