Progress takes time ...

Posted by PicasaSorry we haven't been keeping you up to date - we've not been idle!  We are still supporting a number of Gambian families with emergency help buying medicines, paying increasing school fees and making some regular payments to ensure that one school can function properly. 
Now, near the end of March 2013, we have been asked for the school fees for two little girls for next term (Gambian schools run on the same timetables as English schools as they were once a British colony). The amount required is only 30GBP each which provides school attendance, a small snack and uniforms. They will also have received a mosquito net initially, vital to help prevent the killer disease malaria.
