You hear it so often: “Once you’ve been to The Gambia you think it’s great or you absolutely don’t like it”. We were already gripped by the “Gambia virus” after 1 holiday. We love the people who live there, fantastic, friendly people.
Of course we also saw the terrible poverty in which most people live and we decided not to put our head in the sand but to help where we could. Because of the close friendships, and yes also the less tight, that we have built up there, we have been able to help little by little. However, we continued to feel that we could and wanted to do more. We have put our plans on paper, sorted out things, informed where necessary. Because of the enthusiasm of everyone who provided us with the necessary information, we realized that it was possible to do more indeed.
