Gambia: World Islamic Call Society Renders Free Medical Service in WCR

A Libyan charity called the World Islamic Call Society (WICS) recently offered free medical services to three communities in the West Coast Region; namely Banyaka, Yuna and Madiana.

World Islamic Call Society is a non-profit organisation established in 1972 by the late Libyan leader, Moamar Gaddafi. It comprises more than 250 Islamic organisations from around the world that are members of its General Congress.

The Society finances the social, economic, religious and cultural programmes and it comprises medical doctors who are well trained both nationally and internationally.

Its free medical service in the West Coast Region is one of its many programmes designed to help the people, especially the needy.

Speaking to the Daily Observer during an interview at the site, the Society's managing director, Nasir Tackazi, said the move formed part of their objectives of enhancing the healthy living of the people, and to complement the efforts of the government through the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare.

He underscored that their intervention is purely based on humanitarian ground, while assuring that his Society will continue to render services in the country particularly in the area of health.

The beneficiaries who took turns to react to the humanitarian services, applauded the Tripoli-based Society for this worthwhile intervention.
