This initiative is directed and coordinated by Dr. Margaret Konima Sesay and supported by family and friends from Sierra Leone, UK, USA and UAE.
A million thanks was extended to the following:
Reverend Canon Joseph and Mrs Maria Tucker & family, Sawyerr family, Modu Jr. & Hamusa Sesay, Iscandari family, Bismarck Davies family, Lukulay family, Bishop Samuel Gbonda& family, Mr. Melvin and Mrs. Hawa Tucker & family, Mrs. Francess John, Dr. and Mrs David Khanu & family, Mrs. Valish Coker and family, Mrs. Aliea Kamara & family, Ms. Ann Akaki, Mrs. Victoria Kargbo & family, Ms. Jane Moikowa, Ms. Beatrice Kuyateh, Haja Fatu Yumkelĺa-Sankoh & family, Dr. Robert Moikowa, Mr. Foday Brima Sawi & family, Ms. Isata Sawi and De-Masoki, Mr. and Mrs. Rashid Sesay & family and Mr.& Mrs. Mahmoud Kamara.

Dr. Margaret Konima Sesay, the Director and Coordinator “FROM LAPPA TO APRON” Project informed that the aprons are of the finest quality as they want the market women to be decent while selling as is the case in other countries the world over, promised that more aprons would be distributed to various markets in the country and appealed to other individuals and institutions to emulate the sterling example.

She further observed that one of the cleanest places in any country should be the market as that is where food items are bought, otherwise, individuals will fall sick and that poor hygiene in market places would zoom on the country’s public health.

Some of the beneficiaries interviewed including Mariatu Kargbo, the Chairlady of Aberdeen Road Market, commended the initiative to promote hygiene and food safety in markets and appealed to other individuals and institutions to emulate the example.
