He went on to say that “our Corporate Social Responsibility program is grounded on the principles of sharing and caring, and we believe this donation is a great way to give back to our communities. We are also aware and appreciate that our customers from all corners of the Gambia, and even ourselves as employees of Trust Bank together with our family members might at some point, directly or indirectly benefit from the health services offered by Tanka Tanka Psychiatric Hospital”.

He concluded by saying that “Mental illness is one of the most critical health problems. It affect more people, require more prolonged treatment, cause more suffering to the families of the afflicted, waste more of our human resources, and constitute more financial drain upon both public and personal finances. That is why at Trust Bank we believe that the choice of donating to the Tanka Tanka Psychiatric Hospital, responsible for providing care and treatment for our brothers and sisters with mental issues is most appropriate”.
