The Deen-Conteh Foundation, a charity organization that advocates for societal equality, has donated food and hand washing equipment to residents of the King George VI Memorial Home in Freetown.
Since its establishment in the 1990s the home has been operating on funds raised through donation and philanthropic gestures.
The National Coordinator, Deen-Conteh Foundation, Donald Green said the Foundation was established in 2006 with the aim of helping the needy thereby bridging societal inequality.
He said the need to help King George VI Memorial Home is based on an assessment made by the organization to ascertain challenges at the Home, especially at a point when the country is faced with Coronavirus pandemic.
Among the items donated to the home include, bags of rice, and other food condiments together with hand washing kits like veronica buckets, soap and hand sanitizers.
Receiving the items, Christiana Johnson, Home Manager King George VI Memorial Home commended the organization for the kind gesture noting it timely intervention.
She noted that the operation of the Home is dependent on supports and funds raised through philanthropic gesture.
She therefore thanked Deen-Conteh for thinking about them at this critical moment. She further appealed for more supports from other organizations.
