He added “We intend to give out in total one hundred thousand bags of 10KG and thirty thousand bags of 25kg of rice, but since at the inception of the ramandan Vision Development Foundation has been going round to give Ramadan sugar.

Fofana maintained that the bags of sugar they distributed targets vulnerable institutions, and personalities, adding that this year VDF has decided to double up its support due to increasing in demand.
