A Turkish energy company operating in Gambia, Karpowership, has on Thursday donated 200 Gambian families and 3 boarding schools with rice and sugar.
The company donated 150 bags of rice and 150 bags of sugar to needy families ahead of Ramadan in a ceremony at its headquarters along Kairaba Avenue.
Today is exactly one year since the Turkish company started operations in Gambia, supplying country’s energy company with 36 megawatts of energy.
The donation was part of the power production company’s initiative to support the poor, needy and underprivileged in the society, said Yankuba Mamburay, country director for Karpowership.
Karpowership made a similar donation last year Ramadan, said Mamburay.
Meanwhile, last month the company has also donated food items to three orphanages in the country.
The company donated 90 bags of rice, 15 bags of onion, 15 gallons of 40 liter oil and loaves of bread to the orphanages.
The company is also currently refurbishing the pediatric unit of country’s main hospital, Edward Francis Small Teaching Hospital.
“This is our way of giving back to the Gambian people,” said Mamburay.
