In the early hours of Monday 5th of June an inferno had ravaged five apartments building at Fajikunda. It’s shocking to see what you have worked for years and see it destroyed within a blink of an eye. There are many valuables including cash amounting to D40, 000 and 40,000 cfa that had perished in the inferno but thank God there was no loss of life or injury. The first lady of the Republic of the Gambia, Madam Fatoumatta Bah-Barrow took a trip to see the affected families at the neighborhood. She gave them a number of bags of rice, sugar and a cash amount enclosed in an envelope to each family respectively. The entire neighborhood came out to witness her Excellency’s presence and showing her empathy to the affected families, in fact many people makes remarks that this is one of its kind.
Alagie Loum one of the tenants at the fifth apartment hailed the first lady and her foundation saying this help is timely and worthy in emulation. We will be continuously behind you in support and prayers to you and your foundation.
