Mrs Kisseh gave the assurance that similar donations and hospital equipment and drugs would be made to the James Town Clinic and the Ussher Clinic and Maternity Home soon.

The Foundation would also assist fishmongers in the area with a giant gas oven estimated at 500 dollars to boast their operations. Mrs Kisseh said the Foundation assisted fishermen and fishmongers in the area with a number of items, including 1,000 Chorkor Fish Smokers, uniforms and eye protectors early this year.
