Handing over the items to both public health facilities, Executive Director of HMD, Saihou Balajo said the donation is part of the organization’s continuous kind gestures in making a difference in the lives of people through charity.
“The government cannot do it alone. We all have a part to play in positively transforming the lives of people and contribute to national development,” Mr. Balajo said.
The over D600,000 worth of hospital equipment was received by the Alkalo of Tanjie, Village Development Community (VDC) chairman, Governor of North Bank Region, religious and community leaders and the management of both Tanjie Health Center and Kuntaya Health Center. They all expressed similar appreciation to the charity foundation, describing the donation as “timely, appropriate, needed and helpful.”
