The CEO of GACH Global, Abubakary Jawara, has donated D100,000 to the Suso Foundation, a social and humanitarian intervention body owned by Musa Suso of Sukuta. The foundation, in partnership with the youth of Sukuta, has embarked on sensitization and assertive action against the menace of ‘kush’, a new drug that is causing devastation among the country’s youths.

With so many violent incidents among the youths around the country blamed on drugs, the National Drug Law Enforcement has called for a concerted effort to combat them.

The donation is truly appreciated and will significantly bolster our mission and drive positive change in the fight against the deadly ‘Kush’ and other illicit substances through our community outreach and sensitization programs. Your support is crucial in our fight against substance abuse and in promoting awareness and educating our young people. Your contribution will undoubtedly help save lives and create a healthier community,” it stated.
