Structures estimated to have cost Le 180 million have been erected at Yangala village, Wara-wara Chiefdom in the northern Koinadugu District.
The project, which was undertaken by Little Step 2000, constructed a hospital, primary school, a carpenter shop, mosque and recreational centres for locals of the community.
The project coordinator, Italian based Peter Bayuku Conteh, accentuated that the initiative was first developed during the interregnum.
He continued, “It’s my desire to give my humble contribution to this once devastated nation.”
Peter Bayuku Conteh stated that the project came into being through the financial blessings of some of his Italian friends, noting that the reason for the construction of such infrastructures was to uplift the socio-economic status of locals.
Mr Conteh stated that, “the community needs a health centre like the one constructed which has modern technology to provide efficient services”.
A community woman, Baata Kamara, noted that with the construction of such utilities the community would gradually grow, adding that “Mr Conteh is a true son of the soil”.
