Just 5 days after the 1st ever International Peace Festival in Farato, Karmic Angels and their Gambian team made a huge presentation of 4 brand new hospital trolley beds (the 1st of its kind in the Gambia), a large stainless steel medicine cabinet and chairs for the Ming Daw Clinic in Farato. These were presented to the Alkalo of Farato Fatou Sowe and the Doctor at the clinic Kebba Kinteh and his staff.

They had in fact been using one of the beds to deliver babies in the village clinic for over a month and had delivered 67 babies on this bed. The first time this clinic was able to help the pregnant women in comfort.

Many thanks must go to Hospital Metalcraft of Blandford for their kind donations and also to Bubacarr of Money Pipe Shipping for making sure the shipping from UK to Gambia was safely carried out.

This is not the 1st time that Karmic Angels has helped Ming Daw Clinic so far medical donations to them has been in excess of £45,000 and we will continue to help the people of Farato in making medical supplies easier for them in the future. Another bonus for the people of Farato is that since the festival took place they have had continuous electricity in the whole village and the income and businesses are reporting a huge increase in turnover and working hours as there is more demand for their services. A BIG BIG plus.

Since the inception of the charity in placing water pumps, taps, building schools, supporting the health sector, supporting football academies and generally helping 1000s of Gambians the total value of all its donations and funding amounts to 16,191,000 dalasi equivalent to £269,850 and we believe that this is the largest amount of value that any charity has placed in the Gambia.

The 1st Farato International Peace Festival In The Gambia

SAM_0560

The 1st ever International Peace Festival in Africa took place in the smallest African nation of The Gambia on 28/29th November 2015 at Farato Mini Stadium. The event was officially opened by members of Karmic Angels and House of Action who joined hands to make this a successful festival.

A crowd of over 1500 people attended (which would have been more due to circumstances beyond our control) to watch some of Gambia’s top artistes perform all for charity and peace. Included in the stars that performed were Jaliba Kuyateh and his band, Max Miral, The Holy Family Band, Baba Blood, Article Slice, T Smallz, Sky Walker and many more. All appeared for expenses only for which we would like to thank them so much.

At the festival a number of certificates were presented including the surprise one to Jaliba Kuyateh who accepted his certificate graciously on becoming Karmic Angels Ambassador in The Gambia. This even brought the big man to tears.

Please view our YouTube video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3tDyxZkK1b4 for further evidence. The plans are to hold the 2nd Farato International Peace Festival on Saturday 26th November 2016 which will surely attract 1000s more to attend. Just to cap it all the festival went off peacefully as everybody respected what it was all about. Make sure you make a note of the date because we would hate for you to miss an even bigger, even better festival in 2016.
