We need your help.

Every year, many people in The Gambia get seriously ill or die due to the lack of primary health care which the country simply cannot afford. Many deaths and infections could be prevented with basic up to date first aid knowledge and equipment.

In The Gambia more than two million people rely on five dangerously overstretched hospitals for their medical care. The requirement for good First Aid would seem obvious to us, yet access to even basic equipment and training remains poor.

First aid training and equipment can help the Gambians respond to daily health related problems and possible life-threatening situations.
