The monetary aspect is not a big concern, but the smiles that we want to put into the faces of the affected families is what matters,” he explained.

Mr. Sisawo expressed his profound gratitude to all those who supported ‘As-Suffa Relief’ for complementing their efforts in supporting the needy.

Sarjo Jallow, a beneficiary, said they are excited to receive the donation. “This is huge to us, and we are grateful to the donors for supporting us at this difficult moment,” he expressed with excitement.
