“The presentation today will not only include medical supplies, but the love and generosity of the Trust Bank family to the people of communities of Basse and Bwiam. 

Distinguished ladies and gentlemen, please allow me to remind ourselves that the presentation today, is just a continuation of the work that Trust Bank has been doing for the good of the people of North Bank Region.

It is a continuation of a journey which started about 20 years ago with the strategic objective of ensuring that no mother should die while giving birth, that no child should die at birth from preventable causes and that quality health services will be accessible to all Gambians. 

Since then, records have shown that we have achieved a lot together as Gambians albeit all the challenges along the way and I am optimistic that soon, we shall achieve our ultimate objective”.

Mr Salla reminded the gathering that the occasion coincides with the 20th anniversary of Trust Bank. 

“By way of background, Trust Bank was incorporated in July 1997 to take over the business of Meridien Biao Bank and began operations in October the same year. 

In that light, we are immensely proud to celebrate our 20th anniversary with patients, staffs and guardians whilst we also acknowledge, through a donation, the role that Basse Major Health Centre and Bwiam General Hospital plays in the lives of many Gambians across the two regions.

As the new Managing Director of Trust Bank ltd, I look forward to continuing this relationship which have started years ago and will look forward to visiting the hospital once again”, Mr Ibrahima Salla Said.
