President Barrow said his government has seen that religion is part of their livelihood, which is why they should empower religion in the country and also help those behind religions.

Meanwhile, Barrow promised the residents of Old Yundum that their hospital will be among the hospitals they would be renovating and upgrading across the country.

His promise came after the residents expressed that their health center is not functioning to standards.
