the health sector long time but I have never seen such,” he said. Mabye
praised the donor, describing
him as a young Gambian who is
energetic and doing a brilliant job for important sectors like the health and
particularly for the RVTH. The intervention, he added, has been very timely. He
encourages the donor to keep up the good job, noting that the donation is not
only for RVTH but the entire nation.
Fatou Nyabally, chairperson, Donation

something like a podium; this is a job well done,” she remarked.
Sheikh Tijan Secka, the donor, noted that the donation is a message to all Gambians to put hands on deck to donate RVTH and other health facilities in the country. “Carpenters and other skill workers can all contribute to the nation. I was born at RVTH and got treated at RVTH many times like many people,” he stated. According to Secka, RVTH is everybody’s while calling on other skill workers to emulate his move and to help RVTH to improve to standard.
