GDF Donates Items worth D90,000 To Tanka Tanka Psychiatric 

The Gambia Diaspora Foundation yesterday, 12th January 2024, presented to the Tanka Tanka Psychiatric Hospital at Salagi, with items worth over ninety thousand dalasis (D90,000), by using proceeds from their “Endu semester” event which took place on the 28th December, 2023.

Among the items donated were, a Smart Tv, 5 packets of washing powder, 1 box of yeast, 5 bottles of bleach detergent, 10 packets of soap, 1 box of time and attendance terminal, 5 packets of salt, 1 truck of firewood, along with some medications.

Bakary Camara, the Departmental Matron at Tanka Tanka Psychiatric  Hospital,, thanked the foundation and said that all the items brought to them were all in consultation which made it more special. Adding that people came with donations that they would  like to donate but the donation GDF made was an exception because it was with direct consultation with what the institution needed.

He further encouraged other institutions to follow by saying that the Tanka Tanka psychiatric hospital is the only psychiatric hospital in The Gambia with  76 patients at the moment 14 female and 43 male.

Lamin Barrow, Deputy Departmental Matron also emphasized that the foundation had  a week ago organized something that a lot of people did not have in mind for the people of Tanka Tanka as he believes that the foundation feels the same way as them that’s why they went out of their way to do what they did for the patients at Tanka Tanka. He further said that the donation is one of the greatest things that they ever had.

Aji Sukai Ceesay,  the  president of GDF  (Gambia Diaspora Foundation),,  expressed her profound gratitude to the people including the people in the diaspora that has contributed to the success of the event.

The Gambia Diaspora Foundation is a legally registered organization with the AG Chambers in order to be recognized by government and international organizations willing to support government’s efforts in providing much needed service to critical sectors in the society.
