Bright Future The Gambia, a charitable organisation recently distributed non-food items worth-over D250, 000 to Jammeh Foundation for Peace Hospital (JFPH), Serekunda General Hospital and SOS Children’s Village.
Established in 2015, the aim of the organisation is to help the needy and under-privilege d people as well as complement Government’s efforts in ensuring quality health care delivery.
Ismaila Ceesay, President of Bright Future The Gambia, explained that the organisation is conscious of its mandate in contributing their quota towards national development, affirming that nation building is everyone’s responsibility and that is the reason why they are always out to assist the needy and the less privileged.
“We did similar donations to GOVI, St John’s School for the Deaf and Insight Football team. However, this time we extended our gesture to JFP and Serekunda General Hospital especially at their children and maternity wards as well as SOS Village,” he stated.
Ceesay thus assured of his organisation’s continuous support to see that they provide quality life to the needy in the country.
Amie Njie Touray, senior nursing officer and Head of Maternity Ward, Jammeh Foundation for Peace Hospital, commended the donors for having in mind children at their maternity ward.
“You are in the same line with us because JFP is viewed to be a maternity hospital where women and children are cared for. Therefore donating to the children’s ward means we are under the same umbrella,”she said.
Haita Ndimbalan, Matron at Jammeh Foundation for Peace Hospital, said the hospital usually recorded up to five thousand deliveries a year and that the out-patient also recorded up to forty thousand patients a year.
She continued; “We are serving a very large community, so having such donations is timely.”
Alieu D. Badjie, Public Relations Officer, Serekunda General Hospital, said the generosity extended to children and the maternal ward is a worthwhile venture, adding that health is expensive.
“No single institution can do it alone, so we are much grateful for the assistance rendered to us,” he stated.
