Gambian Emergency Occasional Support (G.O.E.S.) is a micro charity aimed at giving assistance to people in need in The Gambia. We help with medical and educational expenses and are registerd with HMCR for Gift Aid.
Progress is positive but a little slow - but it's still progress! A few more books sold, a few donations - but each and every one means more help can go to where it's most needed.
We were happy to watch the progress of Saruba Colley, the Gambian athlete who ran in the 100m qualifying race. She ran her hardest but sadly wasn't placed for the final. Her family and friends can be very proud of her.
We're planning a visit to The Gambia later in the year. It will be good to visit friends, schools and clinics to see what progress is being made.
best wishes & fingers crossed for Gambian success in the Olympics and Paralympics!
