Yunus Hydara

Yunus Hydara studied and gained a master’s degree in the field of Medical Research in the UK. A passionate and ardent advocate for the betterment of the welfare and wellbeing of the Gambian people, Yunus is one of the most visible online fundraisers for several causes in The Gambia. With the generosity and compassion of the Gambian people, he raised funds for three victims that testified at the TRRC – Mafugie Sonko and Yahya Bojang – both of whom are currently building their houses from the funds. He also raised funds for another TRRC victim, Binta Manneh, whose alleged rape in 2000 triggered the infamous student demonstrations. His most recent campaign was to raise funds to help treat a 2yr old Mansita Jarju who was suffering from retinoblastoma (a form of eye cancer). Yunus successfully raised D650,000 for young Masita. Currently, he is raising money to help establish a “Centre of Excellence” at the Edward Francis Small Teaching Hospital for the treatment of liver diseases and cancers. So far 20% of his goal in this quest has been achieved.
