Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. 

Patients diagnosed with kidney disease in The Gambia face an uphill struggle. In the UK, you can often live a relatively normal life with kidney disease. In The Gambia, it is a death sentence. I believe that this has to change.

Since 2013 we have raised funds, campaigned and formed partnerships to start turning this around. We have already:

* Opened a 14 bed dialysis unit at the EFSTH in Banjul, which can treat 50 people at a time.

* Sent £73k-worth of dialysis consumables to increase availability of life-saving treatment

* Brought UK experts to The Gambia to carry out surgery

With your help we can do much more. I believe that everyone who needs dialysis should have it, regardless of whether they are rich or poor. Therefore, I am running this race to raise money towards desperately needed dialysis treatment in the Gambia. Please dig deep and sponsor me to reach or even exceed my target. Thank you
