The residents of Nema Wasulu Kunda were elated recently, following a huge donation by opposition party Gambia Democratic Congress.
The donation is part and parcel of the party’s involvement of a footpath bridge Nema Wasulu Kunda, and it is being supported by the Baobab Youth development Association.
The party also gave to community iron rods and a staggering cash amount of D27,000 as part of their contribution to the ongoing construction.
Vice Chairman of the Baobab Youth Development Association Awa Bah, said it is part of their mandate to help local communities in the Gambia.
Saying this is not the first time her association showed dedication in helping impoverished communities, she cited their involvement in helping bring street lights, sponsoring students, and currently reconstructing the market of Nema Wasulu.
Ali Nget of the GDC, who handed over the donated items, emphasised how important the development of local communities are to the GDC.
Mr Nget said the GDC has and will continue to look after the welfare of the Gambia and her people.
Its Secretary General, Abdoulie Cham said his boss Mamma Kandeh is here for a revolution.
“He is here to give the Gambia and her people the support and love that they deserve,” he said.
He appealed to the young people of the area, to come out en masse and assist in the construction of the bridge.
The Alkalo of Nema expressed gratitude to the GDC and its leader, before adding: “When it rains, we cannot move out of our houses because of the water. And our women cannot go to the market and our children don’t go to school.”
He said those challenges will soon be a thing of the past.
