Rahma Gambia Limited has on Friday donated items worth half a million dalasi to the Edward Francis Small Teaching Hospital (EFSTH).
The item presented included some theatre furniture, desktops, printers, tables, lockers, projectors among others, held at the premises of the EFSTH in Banjul.
Speaking, Kebba Sanneh, the spokesperson of the Edward Francis Small Teaching Hospital (EFSTH) said the materials are very essential especially in these trying times of the Covid-19.
While calling on other institutions to emulate such an initiative, Sanneh commended Rahma for donating to the hospital especially to the Orthopaedics Department.
Alasan Gent Ceesay, the CEO and Founder Rahma Gambia Limited said Covid-19 is a trying moment for every Gambian, therefore it should be a social responsibility for everyone to come to the aid of EFSTH which is the main referral hospital in The Gambia.
He said: “Government cannot do it alone but it should be a collective responsibility for every Gambian especially during this Covid-19 period”.
He added that the donation is a social investment because the life you might save can be yours in the future. He said it is of paramount importance for business groups to donate to EFSTH.
He promised to the hospital that more of such an initiative is on the way, and disclosed that they will be embarking on a distribution of face masks in the province soon.
Kebba Marenah, Head of Department of Surgery EFSTH said the donation will go a long way and will help to achieve their goals and objectives for efficient and effective delivery.
“It is a big donation to us”, he said. He thanked Rahma for the loadable gesture towards EFSTH.
