Ruling APC Member of Parliament for Constituency 104 in the Western Area, Hon. Nuru Deen Sankoh Yillah over the weekend presented the sum of One Million Five Hundred Thousand Leones to the Mount Aureol Womenís Development Organization, and a Two Hundred Thousand Leones token to the community football Club in a well attended ceremony.

Presenting the money, Hon. Sankoh Yillah noted that the gesture was in fulfillment of a promise made few weeks ago to empower them, adding that with passion for the wellbeing of his constituents, he would continue to strive hard to solicit funds in order to develop the community. He said even though things were not easy he was doing what he could to take development to his constituency, citing how he had mobilized youths to embark on house to house cleaning in order to sanitize the community. He encouraged the recipients to use the money judiciously no matter how much, adding that there will be more money if only they made good use of the first phase.

Receiving the money on the organisationís behalf the chairlady, Haja Aminata Tejan expressed their appreciation for the money given to them as micro credit loans. She said though their organization has large membership, they would make sure that the money benefited everybody.

She however cautioned members on how to invest the money so that they can timely replace for other to benefit.
