Gambia Centre for Victims of Human Right Violations, on Thursday donated 250 bags of rice to the needy victims at a presentation ceremony held at its office in Kotu.

The center’s head of programmes, Kebba Jobe appealed to Gambians not to take the coronavirus pandemic lightly, as it has already claimed thousands of lives and continues to affect millions across the world.

He explained that some of their members who received the donations are still suffering from what had happened to them in the past, saying some have difficulties in walking while others have lost their jobs, making this period a hard pill to swallow to them.

Sheriff M. Kijera, Chairman of the center’s board of director said their members are the most vulnerable as they were detained and tortured during the former regime of Yahya Jammeh.

He urged the business community to reach out to the victims so as to help them to fight the Covid-19 Pandemic.

“We need the chief executive officer of the nation to come out and speak to his people. Communication makes everything easy,” he said, adding that people need to be reassured as the head of state of other countries are doing.
