I later bought twelve other bags and someone donated two bags, making it a total of twenty bags presented to needy women groups in Sinchu Alagie.”

“Women and youth are part of President Adama Barrow’s top agenda. I will also try to do my best for the youth and women of this community as part of my contribution towards nation building.”
