Following the massive flood Disaster in Kuntaur and surrounding areas couple of weeks ago, the Gambia Democracy fund (GDF) on behalf of the Gambian Diaspora will donate two thousand Five Hundred Dollars $2,500 (equivalent of D115,000 Dalasis ) to the flood victims. This donation is in addition to efforts of individual GDF members who joined our fellow Gambians across the world to respond to the urgent needs of our citizens who were affected by the floods.
Happy sang Marie is rarely heard anywhere else except in The Gambia and among Gambians in the diaspora as this feast is very unique to Gambia and to Gambian Christians mainly Catholics who celebrate the assumption of holy Mary, mother of Jesus Chris. As it is usual with Gambians, both wish each other very well and exchanges pleasantries and gifts of food among each other regardless of faith. The government gave Gambians a public holiday to celebrate this day.
