Principal Momodou Kanyi, Christoph Rombach and his travel companions.
Last weekend we received three wheel chairs and equipment for bed-ridden people from Pauline Ostermuenchner and various clothing + shoes (includig some thick clothing ans shoes for Juma, in case it is possible for him to be treated in Europe) from the Punzet family.
Thank you very much!
While loading the car, we had a little stowaway that boarded, when we were not looking. Fortunately I heard a tiny noise coming from underneath all the things, when I found this young cat getting ready for a nap on a bag.
Ibrahim Bah had suffered from meningitis when he was 10 years old. The disease affected his eyes and ears. He is still attending a normal school and has always been among the best 5 students in
His commitment should be supported and rewarded.
To faciliate his studying we sent him a second hand laptop sponsored by netit.
And as you can see on the photos, he is already using it at school.
He and his family would like to thank the generous donor.
In our last container we sent 85 IKEA solar powered desk lamps.
The children use them every evening for studying and they help the families a lot in their everyday life.
Because of these lamps, each family could safe 50 Dalasi (about 1 Euro) a week, that they'd spent for candles before. Over a period of now 1 1/2 years, that's quite a lot of money for them.
Plus, these lamps reduced the fire hazard.
They say, that the desk lamps made their lives a lot easier.
The parcel containing the printer cartidges etc. has finally arrived in Wassu, where it was already eagerly awaited. The final exams are imminent and the old toners were empty already.
