Defence Minister Sheikh Omar Faye has assured the Gambia Armed Forces  of the support of President Adama Barrow ‘his cabinet and the entire government’.

“In this noble armed forces, we are together with you. President Barrow, his cabinet and the entire government and the entire country will be supporting our sons and daughters. We’re not going to abandon you because you’re putting your lives in the front for this country. We have to say thank you to all of you,” Mr Faye said on Friday at the Edward Francis Small Teaching Hospital as men and women of the Gambia Armed Forces gathered there for a largescale blood donation effort.

Earlier on, the chief of Defence of staff Gambia Armed forces General Yakuba Drammeh revealed that the army was the first port of call each time the EFSTH is in ‘desperate’ need of blood.

“Perhaps if I may assert the Gambia Armed Forces during the period under review, we’ve been the largest single blood donor to Edward Francis [Small] Teaching Hospital,” General Drammeh said.
