The Management of Trust Bank Gambia Limited, today, December 6, 2022, presented to Tanka Tanka Psychiatric Hospital-Salagi, items worth over two hundred and fifty thousand dalasis (D250,000.00) as part of the bank’s annual corporate social responsibility contribution to health facilities across the country. 

Speaking at the event, the Deputy Managing Director of Trust Bank Gambia LTD, Mr. Omar Mboob disclosed that Trust Bank has partnered with Tanka Tanka psychiatric hospital for more than a decade.

“It’s a continuation of a journey that started all these years ago with the strategic objective of complementing government’s efforts of transforming the lives of people with mental health problems in this country.  The reason this hospital is one of our most treasured partners is because our youth, the future of this country and Gambians in their most productive years from a large part of our population are dealing with mental health issues. With everything going on in the world around us, it is not a surprise that mental illness is a great epidemic of this generation” he said 

He added that we need to strive for a fundamental culture shift in our society when it comes to mental health; a culture that has long neglected the mentally ill in our society.
