I'm sure you can appreciate with any child, in any school, having basic first aid is a must.
The sad thing is that in Gambia there is very little medical care available, especially at a cost affordable to the needy.
There is no NHS! Therefore having basic first aid and pain killers available in school is something we feel is very important. The children are very prone to small cuts and gnashes as many play outside without shoes on.
If you would like to help us keep our medicine/first aid cupboard well stocked with plasters, bandages, antiseptic ointment, children's paracetamol and pain killers etc, then any amount you could donate would be greatly appreciated.
