“The girls are doing fine with their studies and other aspects of their lives”
“However, they often face inevitable health challenges, and at the moment find it difficult to feed properly because they lost their grandmother who was their bread winner”, a statement from the team reads.
The team also said that the girls are now staying with their elder sister who is now catering for them, while also schooling.
Sinah Turay and Sento Turay are attending Alhadi Islamic institute, Richmond and Birch Memorial School Makendi respectively.
