Trust Bank Gambia Limited yesterday donated second-hand clothing, refrigerator, microwaves, electric kettles, and toiletries to the Tanka Tanka Psychiatric Hospital.

Njilan Senghore, managing director of Trust Bank, stated: “Mental health challenge is one of the most critical health problems and probably among the least understood. It affects more people and causes untold suffering to families affected. This donation not only comes with monetary values but with special love and appreciation from the Bank to the patients and the staff of Tanka Tanka.”
