The donated items included three (25kg) bags of detergent soap, five long local hard brooms, five long soft brooms, three cartons of laundry soap, five rakes, five toilet brushes, and 50 pieces of toilet soap, together with one uniform and two sets of computers.
Speaking at the presentation ceremony, Sulayman M Sanyang, CEO Badinyaa, noted that the donation is in line with their operational status to support the facility.
“We are ready to support the facility at any given time provided that we are given all the necessary backing by our stakeholders,” he said.
Sanyang further told the gathering that Badinyaa had been supporting the facility for the past six years through cleaning exercises and the donation of items in order for the facility to record significant health conducive environment.
He noted that it was high time for the community of Brikama and the facility management and staff took ownership and complemented the efforts of the young volunteers of Badinyaa.
Alieu Darboe, national coordinator of Badinyaa, said they would never hesitate to continue supporting the facility as it is the only health facility the community of Brikama and surroundings have.
Darboe also tasked the beneficiary facility officials to be proactive and always be available as and when needed by the young volunteers whom he described as volunteers with a difference.
The items, he said, are of good quality and should be used for the purposes they are meant, saying that his organisation’s main wish is to transform the facility into a modern one. He lauded Universal Properties and the National Youth Council for their respective donations towards the 2015 Briks-Tone Fiesta the annual fund raising event to raise funds for the facility.
The deputy officer-in-charge at the facility Sister Balkisu Garber, in receiving the items, commended Badinyaa for the donation, emphasising that Badinyaa is a responsible and reputable organisation with a social conscience. “The facility has been receiving a lot of support from Badinyaa and the entire management and staff and the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare are very delighted with the support from Badinyaa,” she said.]]>
