Since Fatou Gaye was elected Gambian Woman of the Year 2014 on What’s on Gambia, our mission, our clinic and our Darra has developed rapidly. Sometimes, we are broadcasted; sometimes we want to share good news – this side keeps you updated.
More moscito nets for our darra
We purchased plenty of new moscitonets for the beds in the Darra. Because, moscitonets ares saving lives. Have a look at our Advices for Everyone/Malaria to see what you can to avoid Malaria.

Fundraising-Campagne for more toilets for the boys’ house of the darra
Assalam aleikum, dear sisters and brothers in Allah. I plead for your support: My sanitary infrastructure is over the limit: Our toilets at the Darra were once designed for 80 children. But currently, about 170 live with me, because now, we are known throughout The Gambia. Every day I get calls from parents or relatives who want to put a child in care. That’s why we are building 6 toilets and 2 shower rooms. Thus, we maintain our standard of hygiene despite the cramped living conditions. Please, help me to protect our children from preventable diseases. If you want to be part of it: no amount is too small. I am grateful for anything you donate for our noble course. May Allah reward you richly and be pleased with you.

kind donations of two ambulances
We happily announce our the kind donation of two ambulances for our clinic! One of the “Rainbow Run” teams went from the UK down to The Gambia, and brought these cars to donate them to us. Because, the father of one of the drivers was treated at our hospital during the Covid pandemic; the donation is a gesture of generous gratitude for what the hospital did for him. These ambulances are an huge improvement for our clinic. Thank you so much!

Our kitchen is working again
We owe a sincere thank-you to our Belgian supporters of NEMA Foundation for donations to repair and rebuilt our big kitchen. The kitchen was damaged by an accident last year. Now is not only repaired but also works with gas instead of wood.
Former volunteering midwive gives lessons to our nurses and midwives
Anne-Katrin, who volonteered as a midwife in our clinic last year, came from Germany back to Gambia – not only for holiday, but also to give a 2-days-training to our midwives and nurses. As Anne is a teacher in Midwivery, we could not wish for better. Anne tought on the WHO partograph which is an tool to supervise the birthgiving procedure. Together, teacher and students developed a parthograph for the clinic. Anne gave out certificates for all the succesfull participants of that training session. Finally, they set up a WhatsApp-group to stay in contact and even to start online courses. Thank you so much, Anne!
