SSHFC Gives Cheque Of Two Million Dalasis To National Coordinating Committee

The Social Security and Housing Finance Corporation (SSHFC) on Friday gave a Cheque of two Million Dalasis to the National Coordinating Committee of this year’s Africa Cup of Nations as the senior national team (Scorpions) and the Gambia Football Federation prepares to ensure the country’s successful participation in the upcoming continental showpiece.

During the brief handing over ceremony at the SSHFC Office in Banjul, Mr Saloum Malang, the corporation’s Managing Director said the move does  not only underlines  the support to Gambian sports but national development as well.

Saloum Malang further highlighted how his institution recently supported the Gambia U-15 team that participated in the Norway Cup held in Oslo by facilitating their journey to and from Dakar through the GTSC bus service.

Receiving the Cheque of two Million Dalasis on behalf of the Minister of Youth and Sports was the President of the Gambia Football Federation, Lamin Kaba Bajo, who expressed his profound gratitude and appreciation to SSHFC for its invaluable support to the young  people of the Gambia.

Mr Bajo emphasized that football now goes beyond leisure and physical fitness as investing in youth and sports means contributing to the development of the country’s critical mass. He further said such a move by a public sector like SSHFC will help consolidate the ongoing strides taking shape in Gambian football as football has what it takes to divert the attention of Gambian youth from venturing into irregular migration.

The Africa Cup of Nations will be held in Ivory Coast from 13th January to 11th February 2024 as The Gambia is set to play their first match against Senegal on Monday 15th January 2024.
