Wellingara Town Development Association (WTDA) both home and abroad have distributed fifty bags of rice to various vulnerable families in Wellingara.

This is part of support to needy families during the course of state of public emergency in The Gambia due to coronavirus pandemic.

Chairman of the Association, Njaga Jawo said the gesture was their token of support to the community to mitigate the difficulties families are going through during the period of the state of public health emergency.

He said the Association came into existence as a result of the thoughtfulness of some citizens of the town who are currently living in the diaspora. “Since then, a number of development projects have been initiated by the association, including the ongoing construction of a community mortuary and provision of sanitary materials in the fight against the deadly pandemic.
