    By Kandeh Sesay – 24 Aug. 2019

    Residents of Kingtom and Kroo Bay Communities were in subdued but delighted moods when receiving food item donated by Management of Karpowership. The donation was done in compliance with the entity’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and includes assorted food items of bags of rice, flour, cooking oil, sugar, water and juice, worth millions of Leones.

    On behalf of the management of Karpowership, Mr. Joseph Skeff, presented the items to the various communities stating that it is their pleasure to give back to communities where they are operating from. He said that they are mindful of their Corporate Social Responsibility, adding that this is not the first time they have been supporting the people that are residing in their operational areas and beyond.

    “We want to build strong and cordial relationship with people residing in our operational areas,” he said, adding that their operations will not be successful without the support of the people. He went on to say that they are not only passionate about supplying electricity  but also to also support other developmental activities in the country.

    He said that the donated items are mainly to support those in need, adding that their main aim is to build a solid foundation with members of the various communities where they are operating. He disclosed that out of the two ships that were supplying electricity supply, one of them which is Karpowership Dogan-Bay has gone back to Turkey but will be back in December this year, stressing that the rumour that was making the round on Social Media that Karpowership is not in operation is false and baseless.

    Head of Mammy Queens of the entire Kingtom Community, Florence James, expressed profound thanks and appreciation to Karpowership for the kind gesture.

    “We are very glad that the donation came at a time we needed it most,” she said. She went on to say that it is their earnest desire to see that the management of Karpowership continues to support them.

    “I hope that this relationship will continue to grow from strength to strength,” she said, adding that they will do all within their powers to support the Management of Karpowership furthering that they will do everything  to ensure that the operations of Karpowership goes on smoothly within their communities.

    Similar sentiments were expressed by Abibatu Kanyoko, the Mammy Queen of Bundu Fence. Charles Carew, Chairman of Kroo Bay Community also thanked Karpowership by stating that they are looking forward to a similar gesture as they are living in a deprived community.

    Chief Pa. Alimamy Kargbo Kabenpa 1st of Kroo Bay also thanked the Management of Karpowership.

    Management of Karpowership also disclosed that  a similar donation will be done within the Kissy Oil Refinery community, Bo and Kenema.
