What we do

In 2009, we built a place for women to deliver safely in a clean, supportive environment, and opened a women-focussed clinic.

Delivery Room

Today, the Foundation operates our well-frequented, not-for-profit clinic with delivery room & maternity ward offering all services from antenatal, via delivery to postnatal check up including immunization programs. Moreover, we serve the community with general medical treatments.

** More about the clinic **

In 2012, we opened a future-lookingly shelter for girls (Darra) based on Gambia’s traditional idea of community financed children shelters.

Clinic incomes, together with support from both The Gambia and abroad, maintain the shelter as an intermittent and/ or permanent home for appr. 50 girls of all ages as welcomed members of our Sheikh-Tihami-Family. All of them get full support in terms of health, food, housing, school attendance an Q’ran lessons.

** More about the Darra **

In 2014, our efforts became public until I was honored by news broadcaster What’s on Gambia as Woman of the Year 2014 which ever since has been resulted in growing support of our mission.
