The Friendship Zone Association has supported several families in Darsilami village with sugar and rice.

Nfansu Marenah, the President of the Association said their association stands to raise awareness among young people including on the dangers of the use of illicit drugs.
He said the support came from the individual contributions of the members of the association.

“COVID-19 affected every sector of the society particularly those living in villages. This is why we raised some funds to come and give back to the people,” he said.

Marenah said it was the first time they reached out to the people of Darsilami with such gestures, adding more will come along the way. He added the Association has once conducted a sensitisation programme at the community school on the dangers of using illicit drugs.
