New project of Les Amis de Gambie: COVID-19 hygiene package


New project: COVID-19 hygiene package


We feel relatively helpless and we are thinking a lot about the children and staff members in the orphanage and about everyone involved in our projects. We are also thinking of the families who live near the orphanage and who do not have the financial means to protect themselves against the spread of the virus.

In this difficult time, we consider it particularly important to lend a helping hand to the local population, those who have been most severely affected by the crisis.

We therefore feel it is timely to appeal again to your generosity and ask you to support the Gambian families who need your help the most with a ‘COVID-19 hygiene package’.

A package costs €20 and consists of four fabric face masks (made by local garment makers), a bottle of disinfectant hand gel (when there is no water nearby), a bottle of Dettol, a bucket with a lid, two pieces of soap and a large, 5-litre bottle of bleach.

You can transfer your contribution to account number IBAN LU42 0030 6563 9934 0000 (BGLLLULL) or via PayPal (click on the donate button at the bottom) in the name of Les Amis de Gambie citing ‘COVID-19 hygiene package’.

Unfortunately, because (almost) everything has to be imported, these articles are not cheap.

Orphanage employees ‘mama’ Esther Sesay and ‘mama’ Isatou Jallow-Sowe will make sure that your donation reaches those places where help is most needed within a week.

Each and every donation is of great value to us and we cannot thank you enough for your generosity in supporting this crucial project. Your donations are very gratefully received.
