Letter to members

Dear members and friends,how quickly the first half year has come to an end. Unfortunately, due to the standstill caused by the Corona, we lack the personal contact with you, so we will gladly inform you again by mail.Corona has not only brought us limitations, but has also shown us how important consistency and loyalty, in the truest sense of the word, can be affordable. The income from your membership has enabled us to continue to pay the salaries of our entire staff (43 people).You are the most important and stable pillar of our association! THANK YOU for that!The second pillar are our sponsors. Our main sponsors from Regensburg remained a strong support for us, thus 10 school leavers could be financed an education and our director could be given a worthy farewell into retirement.In spite of all our constant help, we are already lacking about 3.000,00 € donations and income from stands at various festivals due to the imposed restrictions. We already have some ideas to compensate for this and hope for your continued support.

We have always been in contact with Hatab, our coordinator, and thank God, all the people we know in The Gambia have been spared by Covid 19 so far. The government has, after the pandemic became known, reacted very quickly and stopped public life. Unfortunately, the number of cases of corona disease has been rising dramatically for several days. More details and the reports of Hatab Beyai, you can see on our homepage at www. socialis-for-the-gambia.de On 22.07.2020 the staff at Sannehmentereng Lower Basis School bid farewell to their director Mr. Jatta in retirement.
