Story

After my holiday to The Gambia and realised some people are not as lucky as we are even to have the basics of water and shelter. I am sponsoring 4 children to get them through school I will be visiting the school to give supplies of stationary, chalks, posters, exercise books. I will return next year in January and take supplies over with the money raised and will buy bags of rice to give out to families that need it most, Quite often, families never know when their next meal will be, buying a bag of rice can last a large family 1-2 months!
Each year, The Gambia experiences a 6 month rainy season. During this time, the tourist industry, which for the majority of the population is their only source of income, completely shuts down and the workers are left without an income, resulting in them struggling to support and feed their families throughout the year. Being able to eat every day is a rarity within this poverty ridden country and it is common for families to go without food for long periods of time. 
I know charity begins at home and why should we help others abroad but £2 goes a long way!
