LIKE-MINDED STUDENTS ON FBC CAMPUS DONATE FOOD CONDIMENTS, 100 BUNDLES OF WATER TO FEMALE STUDENTS ON HOSTELS, AND A BOWSER FULL OF WATER TO FBC MASJID
Even though the results of the past Students Union election did not favor her candidacy, Former Flag bearer Aspirant in the last SU election Fatmata Binta Jalloh, together with other like-minded students continue to demonstrate a keen interest in issues affecting students on the soils of Fourah Bay College — more so during this holy month of Ramadan.
These students on Monday 25th April 2022, donated three bags of 50kg rice, a Bag of Sugar, a bag of onion, a cartoon Nescafé, three packets of varieties of Maggie and other seasoning products, one full gallon of oil, and one hundred bundles of sachet water, in addition to a bowser full of water to the Masjid at Fourah Bay College.
Residents, particularly students on campus are met with variations of serious challenges. One such challenge is lack of access to food, and other basic needs which mostly lead them to ply the dreadful Berry Street route down to Model Junction all in the name of access to food.
Binta, together with these students, is still working tooth and nail to not just identify, but address the problems students are facing on campus, and the donation is a testament to such assertion.
Beneficiaries from the hostels and Masjid commended these students on what they termed as a timely gesture; adding that this is the first time an independent body of like-minded students have resorted to look into the constraints they as students are faced with. The donation, they say, is pivotal to maximizing the social welfare of students on campus.
Among the like-minded students were: Fatmata Binta Jalloh final Hon.2 Law faculty, Abdulrahman Mohamed Dukuray year 2 Law Faculty, Aisha S. Dukuray year 3 Gender Department, Salamatu Kakay Hon.1 Law faculty, and Mohamed Lamin Kamara Hon.1 Law faculty among others.
The act of giving is one good attribute we all should emulate amidst the prevailing economic circumstances, and helping students on campus is something these like-Minded Students consider as their responsibility.
Ramada Kareem and May Allah answers our supplications
