Standard Chartered Bank, in collaboration with Premier Media Consultancy, on Friday (27 February) rewarded listeners of their sponsored radio soap opera drama ‘Ous Kain Tin Dis’ with assorted prizes.
Listeners of the drama, which is being aired on 46 radio stations across the country on Ebola prevention and control since December 2014, are asked questions relating to episodes being aired in a bid to determine the level of understanding among the public.
Musu Thoronka and Mohamed Alie Kargbo received five gallons of cooking oil each, while Mohamed Bai Fornah and Alimatu Jalloh took home a bag of rice each as prize.
According to Premier Media’s Desmond Finney, the radio soap opera episodes focus on basic information about Ebola and its preventive measures, which he said will run for three months.
“Communication is very much vital in this fight against the deadly Ebola virus disease. Listeners of the radio soap opera are usually asked questions to test their level of understanding of the drama,” Finney said and encouraged the public to continue to listen to the drama.
Also, SCB Head of Branch Banking, Sulaiman Lumeh, congratulated the winners and challenged them to continue to listen to the drama in order to win more prizes.
He commended Premier Media Consultancy for producing the drama, and expressed his delight at the level of listenership of the drama series.
The winners expressed their delight for winning gallons of cooking oil and bags of rice after answering questions posed to them, and thanked the bank for sponsoring the programme, which they described as very educative.
