A delegation from Pastor Forbes’ Abiding Word Ministries on Saturday, January 5th presented fifty boxes of packaged drinking water to the Truth, Reconciliation and Reparations Commission at its headquarters at Dunes Resort, Kololi. The water is meant for distribution to staff and audiences at the commission’s hearings. This is the first of a monthly donation the Church intends to make to the TRRC throughout the hearings. The Church also presented a copy of the Holy Bible for use during the hearings. Pastor Alhagie Tiyana who led the delegation said the donation was an expression of what the church wanted to do in support of the TRRC. He said it was Abiding Word Ministries’ desire to see the TRRC succeed.
Receiving the gifts on behalf of the commissioners and staff of the TRRC, Executive Secretary Dr. Baba Galleh Jallow thanked Abiding Word Ministries for their kind gesture and described the gift of water as very symbolic coming as it did just two days before hearings begin on Monday, January 7, at 10:00 a.m. Dr Jallow then took the delegation on a conducted tour of the TRRC’s main hall were the hearings will be held.
