Through Freegle I have collected baby and children’s clothes, hundreds of books especially well illustrated ones, blankets and bedding, desks, tables and chairs for schools. All this has been sent in several batches by sea container to Gambia, where people I know have distributed it to people in need. Thank you to the many donors. You know who you are and Gambians are very very grateful. The photo shows a Lamin, a deputy headmaster of a large senior secondary school with his family of nine children. He distributes to numerous nurseries and schools and to people in the area around where he lives in the town of Brikama.
