The support, which is not the first time, was courtesy of World Hemophillia Federation through Safe Motherhood Foundation.
At a handing over, Vandi Jay, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Foundation, expressed gratitude and appreciation to the Ministry for its open door policy especially to members of the foundation.
"We acknowledge and value your partnership and we assure you that we will continue to provide support to the vulnerable people of this country through the Ministry of Health."
He also assured the donors that whatever is presented would be judiciously distributed among the beneficiaries.
He also commended the donors for the trust bestowed on them.
In receiving the items on behalf of the Ministry of Health, Dr. Babanding Sabally, director of Pharmaceutical Services, lauded the donors for making what he called yet again another support toward strengthening the country’s health care services.
He acknowledged and commended the World Haemophilia Federation for contributing to the country’s health sector.
"These are areas that are neglected in The Gambia. Therefore providing medication in the area of haemophillia prevention is long overdue and is a step in the right direction."
While assuring that the medication would be put into good use, Dr. Sabally equally acknowledged that providing those medication for the less privileged is a move in the right direction.
“I think this is good move and is all gear towards complementing government's effort in national development."
He thanked the donors for the benevolence adding that the gesture would significantly boost the country’s health care sector.
