In line with their Corporate social responsibilty, the National Revenue Authority (NRA) last week donated foodstuff amounting to millions of Leones to the people of Gbomsamba in the Buya-Romendae Chiefdom, Port Loko district, northern Sierra Leone.
The items which included a quatum of over 70 bags of rice, cooking oil, sardins, soaps and others were made available to the community’s inhabitants as a way of the Authority’s relentless efforts in assisting impoverished communities in their fight against the Ebola diesease, particularly during the impending three-day stay at home.
In her statement while donating the items, NRA’s Commissioner-General, Madam Haja Kallah Kamara, told her audience that the move was with the Authority’s long stance in adopting the community which housed over 70 homes.
She furthered that since the current situation was crucial and difficult for almost everyone, herself and the entire management of the NRA thought it fit to slice from their meagre salaries in making sure that the village’s inhabitants observe the three-day stay at home with enough food to eat.
She called on them to stay calm and remain indoors and at the same time strictly follow and abide by the health workers’ advice.
In his contribution NRA’s Corporate Affairs Manager, Mohamed Bangura, sensitized the villagers on the dos and don’ts in the fight against the country’s new enemy which, he stressed, was deadly.
Bangura further assured the community of the Authority’s continued assistance in the near future as they continue to meet their corporate social responsibilities.
Receiving the items on behalf of their subjects, both the community’s town chief and the Chiefdom Speaker, thanked the Commissioner General and the entire NRA team for making their community top amongst the rest.
The duo concluded by assuring the NRA management that they would continue to be peaceful, and law-abiding, so as to speedily eradicate the country’s new enemy.
