ChildFund donates to health ministry


By Olimatou Coker ChildFund The Gambia donated three pallets of pharmaceutical items and medical supplies to the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare at the central medical store in Kotu recently. The health officials also received syringes, surgical brushes and equipment, drugs and catheters. Donors said the aim was to help complement the ministry’s efforts in providing quality and affordable health services to all. Musukuta Komma, the country director of ChildFund said this was not their first intervention in health, having previously supplied health facilities with medicaments, children’s clothing and others. “These highly essential packages form part of our country wide GIK programme which is designed to complement the efforts of the government in the crucial sector of health,” she explained. “In the grand scheme of things, today’s ceremony also reinforces ChildFund’s core intent of helping deprived, excluded and vulnerable children have the capacity to improve their lives and the opportunity to become young adults, partners and leaders who bring lasting and positive change in their communities.” Other speakers at the event were the director of pharmaceutical services, Dr Babanding Sabally.]]>
