Bink International Charity has held on August 20, 2022, at Claremont Park in the Bronx, its annual back to school giveaway for three consecutive years now to help parents and students in need.
The organization has provided 300 backpacks, school supplies and other assorted items.
“We couldn’t do this without the help and support of MetroPlus Health that provided us with backpacks, pencil kits and other items for our communities and we are truly grateful for their continuous contribution and their commitment to make our communities better and healthier,” said Bintou Kone president of Bink International Charity.
“This is not the first time that MetroPlus Health has supported our event and mission of providing educational equity for all children regardless of their race, gender, ethnicity, social class and immigration status,” She added.
According to Samuella Tine, the president of Sam Charity, “Bink International Charity is doing an incredible job by making sure that our kids are ready for school. with the pandemic, a lot of parents are struggling to seek their children to school and this help is much needed at this time.” Knowledge is power. The late Nelson Mandela used to assert that education is the most powerful weapon, which you can use to bring change in world.
So, we have to educate our youth and young mind because if we don’t educate our children and take them out of the street, we will incarcerate them. That’s why we do this work. We strongly believe that every kid has the potential to succeed not only in school but also in life. They are leader of tomorrow. They are the future president, lawyers, doctors, you name it. They are always present to support our communities and we are truly grateful for their continuous contribution to make communities better and healthier.
