In their bid to improve healthcare delivery across local communities Farm 4 Life, a Gambian and UK-based non-charitable foundation has recently donated medical items to Serekunda and Faji Kunda health centres in the Kanifing municipality.
The donated items included infusion sets, thumb braces, urine and colostomy bags, pads and bandages, meant to enhance the medical and effective health services delivery for hospital staffs and patients.
The organisation has previously donated some disability equipment, tools and medical supplies to local health centres and schools including deaf school as well as security gadgets to the Gambia Police Force.
“As a Gambian and knowing the challenges faced by our health facilities, I thought it necessary to intervene and contribute my quota to the development of the country knowing the government cannot do it all alone,” said the organisation’s founder and CEO, Mustapha Mansary.
He promised that the foundation will continue to help the health sector with all the necessary support, noting that health is very crucial in the development of any state while urging them to note a list of the medical items the facilities are in need of to help.
Receiving the items on behalf of their health facilities, officers in charge of both health centres Roheyatou Sabally and Ebou Corr, respectively, hailed the foundation for what they described as a “timely gesture.
They said the items will assist the needs of the patients considering the limited resources available to the health sector while promising that the donated items will be judiciously used.
