Gbassay Kanu has on Thursday 26th. March 2015 donated assorted food items to 42 houses, more than 200 hundred households  quarantined at lower grass field (benk) in the east end of the Freetown municipality.


In a telephone interview with Tumac Radio from United States of America Mr. Alhassan Gbassay Kanu Jr. expressed his heartfelt condolences to those who have lost their lives to this scourge and maintained his total support to the 'benk' people. "I am doing this to show solidarity with my people in this difficult time, I therefore encourage you all to be courageous as all is not lost. He said. Mr. Kanu furthered that, "we all need to put hands together in combating the Ebola virus disease in Sierra Leone".


Speaking on behalf of the beneficiaries, Madam Alice Turay, chairlady of the 'Benk' community, thank and appreciate Mr. Alhassan Kanu for such a kind gesture "we are very much grateful to Mr. Kanu Jr. for such a timely support. She said. She also noted that "we have spent more than 30 days in quarantined, we have only been supplied on two occasions.
