Gambia’s most and still celebrated artist, the prince of ‘Afro Manding’ Jalimadi Kanuteh and his “Sangaranga Recordz” will donate part of proceeds from his 5th upcoming album lunch to the Eduard Franzis Small Teaching Hospital in Banjul women’s ward to fight maternal deaths in The Gambia.
The album lunch is slated for the 20 February 2021 at the Kairaba Beach Hotel in Senegambia.
Maternal mortality is one of the main indicators of the quality of health care including health system delivery in a country particularly The Gambia where the hospital accounts for more than 30% of the over 340 annual maternal deaths in the country.
The death of a woman during pregnancy or childbirth is one of the most tragic, painful, unforgettable and often preventable tragedies that can befall a family and community in Africa.
They therefore solicit support from people to donate any amount to help support and safe a woman’s life in Gambia.
The donations will be utilized to buy tickets for individuals to attend the event.
