Face 2 Face – a Diaspora based organisation and the National Grand Coalition (NGC) party campaign teams have over the weekend fed thousands of residents residenced in slum communities across Freetown.

The twin Organisations donated food items to residents as a way of cushioning the challenges faced by residents, especially during these trying times of COVID-19.

Past weekend, communities in the east end of the city benefited rice, onion, maggi seasonings and other items and this came after the organisations’ previous donation to four slum communities in the west end of Freetown in keeping to their promise of continued support to people living in slums communities.

The teams donated to Two Hundred and Fifty households at Culbot, Bottom Oku, Old Wharf and their environs.

Chief executive Officers of Face to Face, Haroun and Mohamed Alieu Jalloh said this is in keeping to their commitment of providing basic food needs to people living in these slums at least every two weeks.

The donation, according to the National Chairman and Leader of the NGC, Dr. Denis Bright is to help feed the needy, especially at a difficult time like this in the country’s history with COVID-19.

He said Face to Face as an auxiliary force to NGC based in the Diaspora and has been working with the party to give back to the people of Sierra Leone, focusing on the underprivileged.

Abu Hassan is the Country Director for Face to Face he said among food items donated to the community include, rice, onion and maggie.

The teams were joined by two philanthropists, Tina Savage and Abu Bakarr Turay to push the ideologies of Face to Face. According to them, for the two Organisations, such gesture will not be the last but will continue.
