The Banjul Reform Club on Thursday May 7th 2020, donated personal hygiene materials to the Serrekunda General Hospital (SGH) in Kanifing.
Malick Jones, Secretary General of the Banjul Reform Club said the donated materials are part of their contribution to the fight against the global pandemic.
Mr. Jones in giving the history of the Club said it was founded in 1911 by their forefathers; that since then, the ‘Club’ has continued to render support to the nation.
“We are here today to support this hospital in their fight against this global pandemic because we all know that Government cannot do it alone,” he said; that the Club over the years, has been supportive of the needy whenever the need arises.
Charles Mbye, President of the Club said the materials donated include hand washing and other items that will help keep the environment of the hospital clean.
“We should all believe that COVID-19 exists and we should all adhere to the preventive measures recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Ministry of Health,” he said.
Babucarr Saine, Administrator at the Serrekunda General Hospital applauded the gesture of the Banjul Reform Club with much inspiration from its members; that “this is the first time since the beginning of COVID 19, our hospital is donated with this kind of materials.”
Saine outlined that Serrekunda General Hospital is one of the biggest hospitals within the Kanifing Municipality and receives patients from twenty-six health centres; that they started with the training of some of their Doctors and Nurses, well before the advent of the Corona virus.
