The Conteh Kunda Family recently gave baby items to the first born babies of the year at the Serrekunda Hospital. The presentation was held at thehospital grounds in Kanifing. The donated items include: bed sets, disinfectants, detergents, bath pans and a cash amount of D10, 000.

Receiving the donated items, Alhagie Saine, the director of Health Affairs at the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare, expressed delight at the gesture, noting that government cannot do it all alone. He thanked the Conteh Family for rendering support to the health sector and urged the beneficiaries to make good use of the donated items.

For his part, Momodou Conteh, said their intention is to participate in the development of The Gambia more especially in the health sector. He went on to say that since they adopted the Serrekunda Hospital labour unit, they have never got tired of extending help.

Alieu D. Badjie, the public relations officer of the hospital, said the efforts of the Conteh Familyis without doubt, geared towards complementing the efforts of the government.

Speaking on behalf of the beneficiaries, Mariama Saidy, a relative of the first born baby of the hospital, thanked the donors for the gesture. She prayed that the relationship between the hospital and the Conteh Kunda Family grows from strength to strength.

In a similar development, the Conteh Family also donated oxygen concentrator, window curtains, air conditioner, and plunger to the Alhagie Kebba Conteh's adopted ward in the hospital.
