Support a Child To Give Them A Chance Of Education in 2020/2021

For just £5 a month now is your chance to support one of our orphan/street/less fortunate children. For this £5 this pay for their education for a full year (ages 3-7). Also if you Gift Aid your donation (provided you are a UK tax payer) then every £10 we receive from you will increase to £12.50 thanks to HMRC refunding the tax you paid to us. If you can give £8 a month this will also pay for their school lunch and their school books.
You can donate online through GoFundMe https://www.gofundme.com/f/support-an-orphan-child-in-the-gambia The Big Give
These little children cant help themselves unless we help them first. This will get them on the education ladder and as they grow up into young adults they will be educated and then their children will also be educated. This in turn will reduce HIV/Aids dramatically and reduce the problem of young children becoming street children and then having the chance of that child taken away into the sex trade. It will also greatly make a difference to the Gambia as a nation as a whole.

Just £5 a month can make such a

difference.

 Here are some of the children that really need your help in return for your continued donation you will be sent a picture of the child you support, together with quarterly updates of the childs progress and a letter or picture from the child to their sponsor. Once these have their sponsors then there will be more added. We have as at 20th February 2020 Twelve orphans/street children/less fortunate sponsored out of the 32. Therefore we need your help to sponsor the other 20. Please just something from your heart to give them a chance.  That’s less than 17p a day

Brikama Medina Gains Malaria Nets To Save Lives

Presentation of an Olyset Net to one of the mother's in Brikama Medina

The village of Brikama Medina has a population of around 1500 but has suffered badly through loss of life to children from birth to the age of 5 to malaria. Last year alone over 100 children died from malaria.This to us is so soul destroying. But we have made some difference thanks to Olyset Nets who made us a kind donation of 40 impregnated mosquito nets which we donated to the village (thanks to Thomas Cook also who allowed us to take them free of charge on our flight) and now 120 women and children are safe from the mosquito at night for up to 10 years fantastic.

Since these nets were given out malaria has reduced by around 50% in this village. Success you may say well for all those who have a malaria net that is. Mosquito nets were also distributed to Farato and Busumbala where they too have shown a large reduction in malaria deaths. We alone cannot do everything but now you can do your bit.

JUST a £10 donation can buy a malaria net. These are not the impregnated ones but will still give a family protection when sleeping. So it seems that just a little can make such a difference.
