Gambia is a country where almost 60% of the population live below the poverty line. Despite being geographically the smallest country in Africa, the Gambia is home to over 2 million people.
Although the government has taken steps to improve the economic situation and the education system, the Gambia is still a developing country where many children and families need vital help daily to survive.
Poor regions in the Gambia struggle with access to clean water, as they have no electricity, health centers, or ambulances. Contaminated water spreads diseases that are difficult to treat without adequate health care. Clean water is a way to stop the further spread of diseases, especially diarrheal diseases, which are caused by contaminated water.
A brighter future for children in the Gambia
We work in some of the poorest areas in the Gambia and have implemented several water wells. We assist families in villages and isolated areas, through the distribution of food and hygiene products. We have a team that works in the Gambia and reaches out to local villages with food, clothes, and toys for the children.
With their help, we have also been able to build orphanages and schools, giving the children of the Gambia a brighter hope for the future.
