Funding for Health Centre Assistant secured!

We are delighted to be able to announce that this week we have secured funding for the training and employment of a Health Assistant in Penyem Village Health Centre. We have been talking with DJB Labcare Ltd. since just after Christmas. We have also been in touch on several occasions with Chief Kolley and Dan Nyang in The Gambia to ensure that we achieve the absolute best with the funding. Final details of the training etc. will be discussed when we visit Penyem in February, but the successful applicant will be a school leaver, probably who has benefitted from our student sponsorship programme.

The funding, initially over three years, is for £1650. Many thanks to DJB Labcare Ltd - and in particular Colin and Julia Bradnam.
