“We are grateful to the Ghanaian troops serving in ECOWAS stationed in Barra. Our garage is very clean today because of their exercise, as it was very dirty and inconvenient to live in previously. We cannot thank them enough for their generosity to us. They could’ve ignored it like those in the garage who make it dirty, but they chose to clean it for us,” said Adama Cham, ‘Chef De Garage’ of Barra.

The residents appreciate the generosity of the troops and acknowledge that a clean environment is essential for their well-being. According to the villagers, the troops’ intervention goes beyond cleanup exercises.

“They have also undertaken the renovation of buildings at the garage, which were in a delicate state. All these services are provided free of charge, and the residents have developed a good relationship with the Ghanaian troops,” Cham added.

The Vice President of the Garage Association, Ousman Jobe, praises the troops for their sincerity and positive influence on the lives of the community members. He expressed their joy and gratitude for the troops’ intervention and cleanup efforts.
