Njie took the opportunity to applaud the support rendered to her club by the National Water and Electricity Company (NAWEC), Gamtel, Gamcel, the Judiciary and Social Security and Housing Finance Corporation (SSHFC).

While assuring that the donation will go a long way in assisting the patients, Joof used the opportunity to appeal to the general public, individuals and the private sector to emulate the donor.
