The VDC chairperson prayed for the couple continued health and safety whilst assuring them of his committee’s willingness to cooperate with them in all areas of development. 

He added: “The items given to us will be judiciously utilised to maximize their benefit to the people of the community”.

The Representative of the Alkalo of the village, Mr Kanburama fatty, a member of the council of elders conferred an honorary village citizenship on the couple as a demonstration of the magnitude of their sense of gratitude over the donation. 

The medical officer of the village clinic, Mr. Sarjo Sambou told of how emotionally  moved he was by the donation of medical drugs which he said came at a time of massive drugs shortage at the clinic, which is very unfortunate, and life threatening.

 He said:  “Today I am the happiest man at the moment as these drugs here will greatly help to save many lives. I am appealing for a quick intervention with the provision of standard ambulance for a clinic that will serve the village and its environs”.

The head teacher of the Nyofelleh Lower Basic School, Borry Nyass, also a beneficiary of teaching and learning materials commended the donors for their intervention. He appealed for assistance to fence the school garden which generates income for the school. 

The donated items include 15 pairs of Football jerseys, 16-Foot balls, Medical drugs, teaching and learning materials as well as several 1000 seeds of different crops.
