The FaBB intends to use the money to continue its already acclaimed multiple humanitarian projects in the health, education, and social economic sectors as well as empowerment of women and the less privileged.

The occasion was graced by President Adama Barrow, senior government officials and local and international partners. In a short speech, the First Lady thanked the partners and donors for contributing immensely towards the great accomplishments registered in the few years since it was formed.
