The Representative of TICA) said it is part of their cooperate social responsibilities to ensuring inclusion with no exception of Persons With Disabilities. He said since the office of the federation is within the jurisdiction of the municipality, they considered it fitting to involve them to be on a touch base with the federation.

The representative of the municipality called Mr. Lamin Sanyang said, the municipanl council always thinks of including PWDS to be part of equitable distribution of her resources. He evidenced this established fact that, that is why the Mayor of the Municipal Council wisely nominated Person With Disability as Councilor of the council, being the first of its kind in The Gambia and in the history of the council. In light of the foregoing circumstance, he said the delivery of such food item for supporting Persons With Disabilities is indeed a plausible idea especially in this strict and difficult moments.
Few of the Board Members of the Federation, such as, Chairman, Muhammed Krubally, Executive Director, Modou AF Bahoum, Treasurer, Adama Sarr and First Vice Chairman, Ejatou Jallow represented the federation to receive the items which include 20 bags of rice, 5 kg of sugar,, and 20 Galons of Oil.
