Support vulnerable families in Sami District

Apr 21, 2020, 12:21 PM

Statistics have shown that, Sami District in CRR has the highest number of underprivileged and vulnerable families. The daily struggles of inhabitants of this area is as a result of poverty and lack of access to certain basic necessities.

Their main source of earning is usually subsistence agriculture.

Since the outbreak of the novel coronavirus and its subsequent spread in The Gambia, the government has put in measures to contain the pandemic. One of which is the declaration of a State of Public Emergency. This declaration has forced many people to stay home against their will.

Unfortunately, many of the rural dwellers live from hand to mouth and the government has not provided a stimulus package that meets the dire needs of the vulnerable and weak in the communities. The civil society organisations and other philanthropists who have been giving food aid to vulnerable families have mostly, if not all, neglected the rural Gambia.

It is against this backdrop that we call for you to donate either in cash or kind so as to provide minimal food packages and other relevant items to the people of Sami District.

The following people can be contacted for your donations:

  1. Sanaba Jawla = 6927108/7588090
  2. Haruna Jallow = 7417055/9380148
  3. Modou Sowe = 7377560
  4. Madi Mangan = 3752398
  5. Adama Cham = 7009992
  6. Kalipha Jabbi = 3709269.
  7. Edrissa Sallah =713 9549

Be assured that anything donated will reach the target group.
