Samura Kamara Doles COVID-19 Grants to Tonkolili


By Samuel Serry

When he ran for President in 2018, social protection especially for the vulnerable grassroots was an integral component in Dr. Samura Kamara’s campaign manifesto.

Today, that campaign promise is being fulfilled even as he continues to remain the frontrunner for the APC party ticket for the 2023 elections.

Sunday 1st November, 2020, in the Tonkolili district headquarter town of Magburaka, the campaign team of Dr. Samura Kamara dished out Millions of Leones as grants to support individuals and groups.

This was part of a nationwide project to cushion the economic burden occasioned by the COVID19 pandemic on ordinary Sierra Leoneans.  The grant presentation was preceded by a COVID19 sensitization session done by the campaign team. Part of the funds had come from a foundation established by Mrs Betty Kamara, a medical professional and wife of Dr Samura Kamara.

Addressing beneficiaries, regional, district and constituency representatives of the APC party via electronic means; Dr. Samura said Sierra Leone and the APC party are on a “knife’s edge” and that only unity, cohesiveness and an intrepid sense of purpose could bring about meaningful change in the lives of people. He specifically called on the APC family in Tonkolili District to choose the path of reconciliation by working hard to bring back those members who felt marginalized from the party.

Beneficiaries, Members of Parliament, District and Constituency Executives pledged their support for the candidacy of Dr.  Kamara and accentuated their desire for peace and reconciliation in the district.

The COVID19 relief project was launched in Kenema and Kailaihun and is being rolled out to other districts in Sierra Leone.
