In a bid to contribute its quota to national developpent, New Gambia Movement Friday donated cartons of medical gloves to health centers in Serrekunda, Bakoteh and Sukuta.
The move is part of the Heal the Family Project, geared towards working with hospitals, health centers, and international organizations in order to address the country’s healthcare needs.
“We’ll continue to mobilise our membership to see how best Gambians can be useful to his fellow Gambian,” Prof. Pierre Gomez told
reporters shortly after handing over cartons of medical gloves to the nurse-in-charge Isatou Joof at Serrekunda health center.
The newly formed civil society organization has been making giant strides through its charitable arm to ensure that Gambia is turned into a Family Nation.
Dr.Durahata Ceesay and Renee Anderson of the USA-based firm Ultimate Solutions Group (USG) were instrumental in providing cartons of medical gloves through New Gambia Movement.
“We cannot sit down and for everything to come from central government. The vision of the New Gambia Movement is to make sure that we help each,” Prof. Gomez added.
The University of The Gambia (UTG) lecturer called on all Gambians to follow suit in contributing to national development.
In a similar vein, Mrs Nalla Tambadou, one of the senior members of the organisation, seized the opportunity to thank Renee Anderson, CEO of Ultimate Solution Group (USG) for responding to their call.
She acknowledged the fact that Serrekunda health center has become more accessible.
“This is one of the issues that we raised during our last visit,” she recalled.
She said they spared no efforts to take the matter up with health authorities as market vendors stormed the vicinity of the health
Mrs Tambadou expressed hope that the donated items will help bringing
hygiene and infections under control.
The nurse-in-charge Isatou Joof said the donation is timely and will go a long way in helping them to put infections under control.
The Charity Sisters Clinic in Bakoteh was also another moment for New Gambia Movement t hand over cartons of medical gloves.
In Sukuta, a similar benevolent gesture was replicated, prompting the Assistant Officer in charge Famara K. Sanyang to commend the
organisation for spearheading this laudable initiative.
He said Sukuta health center is one of the country’s busiest health facilities as the statistics are comparable to the statistics for a major health center or a hospital.
“This is definetely a great gift,” Sanyang said while making it very clear that government cannot do it alone.
