Help US Send Tombong’s Body Home


OBITUARY Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un  ‎‎‎‎‎

The Gambia Support Network in Greater Manchester (GSN) and the Sanayng Family of Kiang, deeply regret to announce the death of Brother Uthman Sanynag also known as Tombong. Mr. Sanyang passed away on Thursday 11th June at a Manchester hospital in United Kingdom. The family of the deceased together with the Executive Committee of GSN have decided that the body should be repatriated to the Gambia for burial. A Muslim funeral service has been contacted. They will collect the body and perform all the necessary Islamic rituals before sending it to the Gambia. This will take place as soon as the coroner’s report and the death certificate are issued. These are likely to happen within next week.


The cost of repatriation of the body is about £2000. GSN is therefore appealing to members of the community to donate generously towards meeting the cost. Any donation may be paid directly into our Bank Account details of which are as follows:
