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.

Our December 2011 Trip To The Gambia Just About Luggage

Loading up the 63 baggages and boxes over 1200kg for the Gambia

Well our last trip to the Gambia proved to be a very exhausting exercise.

Firstly before travelling we had been collecting donations and reduced price items to take to the Gambia since our return in April 2011.Little did we know that the generosity of people was going to be so great. Our lounge for 3 months prior to the trip looked more like a warehouse than a room!

Our house prior to going to the Gambia

Checking in to Manchester Airport with 4 large cages and 7 trollies looked more like a train fully laden with goods. It took 2 hours to check in and then we knew we had it all to do in the Gambia when we arrived. Thanks to Thomas Cook and their staff for every help they gave us.

Arriving in Africa well you can imagine trolley boys thought they were going to have a field day well they were mistaken as we were given so much help as we are now an NGO. We needed it for sure! Then they wanted to keep everything but once we confirmed all our signed papers then the problem no longer existed (thanks to Stephanie).

Then there was the loading but again the guys and some of  our Karmic Angels Gambian members made ease of  everything. On arrival at our accomodation everything had to be wheelbarrowed or carried 60 metres and finally it was all stacked in our room. Day 1 over with then a little relax then off to bed.

Such a long day 1200kgs plus of luggage finally sorted now there was the distribution. That’s another story.

But to everyone who donated clothes, books, toys, football kits and boots thank you so much you really dont know how many children and adults you have made so happy.
