The Nigerian Igbo Union (NIU) in Sierra Leone has donated veronica buckets and handwashing machines worth over 10 million Leones to Gloucester community in the country.
Donating the items, the President of NIU, Ajim Sabinus, said that the union was set up mainly to help the less-fortunate people in Sierra Leone.
‘We have been doing developmental projects in this community, like the maintenance of the road. I also want them to know that the union will continue to support them in whatever they are doing. I want them to heed to the advice of government’, Sabinus noted.
He also said that the donation of the items, which included the two press pedal, soap, hand sanitiser, veronica buckets and dust bin, to the community was part of the union’s mandate, adding that the union would not relent in helping the government in the fight against Covid-19.
The Headman of Gloucester Village, Frederick Hanciles, thanked the union for always coming to the aid of the community.
