A local community-based organisation called Badinyaa that operates within West Coast Region recently embarked on a day long massive cleansing exercise at the Brikama major health centre.
Speaking to the Daily Observer, the national coordinator of the group, Alieu Darboe, described the exercise as a contribution to the well-being and health of the people, noting that the move was the third of its kind rendered to the health facility by his organization in recent times. "The staff of the health centre cannot do it all alone. They need the support of the community and that is why we have decided to lend a hand," he said, promising that his organisation would soon embark on similar initiatives elsewhere.
Darboe further noted that the exercise was in preparation for the 'Bricks-Tone Fiesta' slated for the 17th of February 2013. The proceeds from the event, he said, will be used to support the health facility.
Deputising for the officer-in-charge of the Brikama health centre, Abubacarr Touray, commended the organisation for the initiative. "I am very confident that Badinyaa is a true organisation that has done a lot for the development of this facility," he said. He expressed their heartfelt gratitude to Badinyaa for all the support rendered to the health facility, thus calling for others to emulate them.
