A sum of D20, 000 was allocated to the Regional Coordinator of the National Disaster Management Agency in Basse and the balance of D10, 000 was allocated to the COVID-19 Taskforce through the Regional Health Director.

In a similar but separate development, the Foundation also donated the sum of twenty-two thousand eight hundred and fifty dalasi to vulnerable individuals affected by the public emergency restrictions. The said amount was shared among 82 vulnerable individuals within Basse Constituency.

Beneficiaries thanked Mohamed Magassy the National Assembly Member for the area, for his generosity and humanitarian assistance rendered them during this difficult moment; that this demonstrates that the NAM has the interest and welfare of his constituents.

On his part, Magassy said the objective of his Foundation is to widen the understanding of the people through adult literacy, in order to reduce their illiteracy rate for them to be autonomous and become contributors to national development; that the electorate of his Constituency are the drivers and members of the foundation to render assistance to the people during these trying times.

Fanta Samateh Manneh, the Governor of URR, hailed the Basse NAM for the foresight and support he and his foundation rendered to the region.

Governor Samateh appealed to other natives of URR within and beyond the Gambia, to give support to their families back home; that food sufficiency during this difficult moment is a major challenge especially for rural populations.

The Magassy Foundation for Relevant Easy Adult Literacy (MF – REAL), is a non-profit organization based in Sabi in the Fuladu East District of the Upper River Region. The foundation gives support and work with the communities of Basse Constituency, during this emergency and difficult time.
