Fingers crossed again.

Good news about the boy with the bad leg. Ousman, his brother, has at last obtained a copy of the boy's medical report. He has copied it and posted it to me so I can obtain some advice here. The doctor has brought forward his next examination of the leg with a view to setting an early date for an operation. The anti-biotics and supply of clean water, towels and bandages have eased the pain and the boy has managed to sit and watch his friends play football. He is no longer crying with pain every night. So - fingers crossed for a speedy good outcome. Thanks to so many people who have contributed to G.O.E.S. Even a few words of encouragement ment a lot when we seem to be getting nowhere! When I retrieved my car from its MOT and service yesterday I found a box of bandages on the back seat which hadn't been there the day before!
Ami. Musa, Isatou and N'dey have had their school examination fees paid. Ous has a new battery for his car and can start work driving a taxi again. Baby Sega has money for medical treatment. Awa has wages for three months as a teacher. Yusupha has received help with his college fees. The small children of Gaye Kunda in Bundung have new clothing, the wives of N'fally have wind-up torches - thanks from them to you for all your kindness to strangers.
If you are thinking of a holiday in The Gambia we can arrange for you to meet the people you have helped!
