4 The 94 Children of Gambia

In Nov '15, 4TC took over an abandoned Gambian shelter with 94 single-parent & orphan children living inside it. The children were neglected by a previous organisation for 3 years. The shelter is made of mud with no sanitation. We want to raise as much as possible to improve their living conditions

We have managed to provide basic food and education for the past 8 months. This aid is very basic due to the lack of funds. They live in a shelter which is made from mud, and contains just one large hall. The children eat and sleep in this same hall, which contains no kind of sanitation. Their schooling is also done here. The children desperately need sanitation facilities. The levels of hygiene are extremely low. The children are exposed to all kinds of infections and disease.


4TC are trying to raise as much funds as possible in order to build an orphanage that will provide a safe, secure, and a hygienic environment. Included in this, will be the malaria-prevention programme. This programme will include malaria tablets and quality mosquito nets. At a bare minimum, funds are needed for the continuation of the food supply we send monthly.
